There are two types of fertilisation: IVF or ICSI.
Regardless of the method, the patient must first receive hormonal treatment to stimulate the production of eggs.
After a period of 15-20 days, an ovarian puncture is performed to retrieve the eggs.
These eggs are then fertilised using the traditional (adding a few drops of semen to the sample) or the ICSI technique (the embryologists select the best sperm from the semen sample and inject them one by one into the egg).
The embryos are then cultivated for approximately one week. After that, the embryos (maximum of 3) are transferred to the uterus through a cannula.
The embryos that are not used during the first process are then frozen for a possible second attempt.
