If artificial insemination is performed instead of in vitro fertilisation, are there also supernumerary embryos?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 09/28/2021

No. In assisted reproduction treatments in which artificial insemination is performed, fertilisation takes place in the woman's uterus. Therefore, neither eggs are extracted nor embryos are generated in the laboratory.
