Ovarian puncture and embryonic development day 0

Ovarian puncture is the phase of an IVF treatment in which the eggs are extracted for subsequent fertilization in the laboratory.

Fertilization can be performed conventionally, that is, by placing a quantity of sperm in contact with the egg, or by means of the ICSI technique.

Once the egg has been fertilized, it is left in culture in the laboratory for 3 to 5 days. This is why the moment of ovarian puncture is considered day zero of embryo development.
