    • Egg Retrieval: A minimally invasive procedure is performed to collect the mature eggs from your ovaries.
    • Sperm Collection: A semen sample is collected from your partner or a sperm donor.
    • Fertilization: In a laboratory dish, the sperm fertilizes the eggs. In some cases, a procedure called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) might be used to inject a single sperm directly into an egg.
    • Embryo Development: The fertilized eggs, now called embryos, are monitored for several days as they grow and divide.
    • Embryo Transfer: One or more healthy embryos are carefully inserted into your uterus through a thin catheter.
    • Implantation and Pregnancy: If implantation occurs, the embryo attaches to the lining of your uterus and pregnancy begins.
