In Vitro Fertilization or IVF is a type of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). It uses a combination of medicines and surgical procedures that allows the sperm to fertilize an egg outside the body in a laboratory. This fertilized egg is called an embryo, which is transferred into a woman’s uterus.
An embryologist is a fertility specialist that helps to create viable embryos to either be used in IVF right away or to be frozen for later use. There are different procedures of embryology according to the gender.
