The IVF method is an effective tool for creating new life in the womb of the mother. The procedure involves a complex of manipulations and therapy, such as:

  • Fertilization of the woman’s reproductive system is stimulated with the help of hormone-containing medications;
  • follicular puncture is performed during ovulation to extract oocytes (egg cells);
  • the sperm is attached to the egg, and a new life appears “in vitro”;
  • the embryo moves into the uterus and pregnancy occurs.
