The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova(egg or eggs) from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a liquid in a laboratory. The fertilised egg ( zygote) is cultured for 2–6 days in a growth medium and is then implanted in the same or another woman’s uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.
Other forms of ART include gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT)and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT).

A drug is given to suppress the natural cycle, which can be self-administered in the form of a daily injection or a nasal spray, for about two weeks.
2.Boosting the Ova supply
After the natural cycle has been suppressed, one is given a fertility hormone (gonadotrophin).This is given/administered as a daily injection for around 12 days.
3.Monitoring Progress
The doctor monitors progress throughout the drug treatment through vaginal ultrasound scans and, possibly, blood tests. Around 34-48 hours before collection of the eggs(ova) Hcg( human chorionic gonadotrophin) hormone is administered.
4.Collecting the Ova
The eggs are collected using an ultrasound probe while one is sedated. After collection one is given medication (pessaries or gel to apply )

5.Fertilisation

Ova is mixed with sperm and cultured for 16-20 hours to allow fertilisation. After fertilisation, the successful Embryos are incubated for 6 days while being monitored pending transfer.
Any remaining embryos of suitable quality can be frozen for future use

Infertility is a term doctor use if a man hasn’t been able to get a woman pregnant after at least one year of trying. Causes of male infertility include

  • Physical problems with the testicles
  • Blockages in the ducts that carry sperm
