IVF process from fertilization to transfer

IVF process from fertilization to transfer

In an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle, the embryos generated remain in culture in the laboratory for a period of 3-6 days, until the embryo transfer to the patient's uterus is performed.

In order for the embryos transferred in an IVF cycle to implant in the uterus and, therefore, for the IVF process to result in pregnancy, it is necessary for the patient's endometrium to have the appropriate thickness and ultrasound appearance. For this purpose, an endometrial preparation with hormonal treatment can be performed.

Finally, about 12 days after the embryo transfer, the patient will undergo a pregnancy test to check whether the treatment has been successful or not.
