5 pasos de la Fecundación In Vitro (FIV) 

In vitro fertilization requires the constant follow-up and monitoring of an expert in Assisted Reproduction, to avoid risks and complications throughout the process, which consists of 5 steps to be carried out:

1. Ovarian stimulation

A woman releases one egg per month, therefore, in this step the administration of medications is necessary, which will serve to stimulate the ovaries and cause them to release several eggs, in order to go to the second step.

2. Egg retrieval

In this step, the egg retrieval occurs, using an adapted ultrasound with an attachment, which sucks the follicles to obtain mature eggs.

The ideal is to obtain between 10 and 20 ovules to carry out the treatment and have a greater probability of success.

At this point it is important to mention that, if you do not obtain a sufficient number of eggs, or if they are not of sufficient quality, it is very likely that your fertility specialist will not continue with the next step, since doing it this way could compromise the success of your treatment.

If this happens, you and your specialist will review what happened in the previous steps and start a new stimulation protocol to retrieve more and better eggs in a following menstrual cycle.

3. Fertilization

Here the semen sample, either from the partner or from a donor, is subjected to a technique called: sperm capacitation, which works to increase the fertility potential of the sperm.

Once this technique has been carried out, the best spermatozoa are placed together with the best quality ovules in a laboratory dish, to give way to fertilization, and thus form the embryos.

4. Embryo culture

Once the embryos are formed, they will be placed and kept in special incubators, and are constantly monitored to analyze that they grow and develop properly.

After this, fertility expert select the best embryos so that they can be transferred to the uterus.

5. Embryo transfer
