In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a set of procedures aimed at the infertility treatment. During IVF patient’s or donor’s eggs are fertilized by partner’s or donor’s sperm outside the human body in a lab. It can be done by using Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and Physiological Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (PICSI). Embryo is transferred into the uterus via catheter after the embryo culture, which lasts up to 5-6 days (at the stage of blastocyst). The preferable number of embryos to transfer is one which is done in order to avoid multiple pregnancies. However, this question is discussed with IVF specialists.
