This means that fertilisation takes place outside the body (in vitro) in a test tube. IVF is also referred to as test-tube treatment or assisted fertilisation.
During IVF, eggs are removed from the ovaries. The eggs are fertilised and cultivated in the laboratory before then being placed in the uterus. Here, you can read about the short protocol and the long protocol.
Surplus, good-quality fertilised eggs can be frozen for use at a later date. This treatment is called FER (frozen embryo replacement).
