Step In Vitro
With in vitro fertilization, the processes that normally occur in the woman’s fallopian tube are taking place in the laboratory.
The eggs are taken from the ovary, placed with the man’s sperm in a dish or tube in the lab to achieve fertilization, and the resulting embryos are placed inside the woman’s uterine cavity by passing a catheter through the cervix.
- Embryo freezing is also done if there are extra embryos after the transfer is done.
Finney Hospital and Fertility Center also offers additional fertility services such as Embryo Freezing, Sperm Storage, Assisted Hatching and Counselling.
