When is it recommended?
The in vitro fertilization with own eggs and semen of the couple is a laboratory technique that consists of fertilizing the ova, previously extracted, with the sperm of your partner’s semen. Once fertilized, the ovum becomes a pre-embryo and enters the uterus to continue its development.
Usually, in a normal menstrual cycle only one egg develops each month. For in vitro fertilization it is desirable to obtain more than one ovule, so it is necessary to stimulate the ovaries hormonally to obtain several mature ovules at the same time. This type of in vitro fertilization is ideal when there is an insufficient amount of sperm to perform an artificial insemination or when there is obstruction or damage to the fallopian tubes, since there is no other possibility of getting a pregnancy. This technique is also recommended after having made several attempts at artificial insemination without getting pregnant.
