IVF is the process by which eggs are fertilized by sperm outside the uterus (in vitro) in the embryology lab. IVF is the main treatment used in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) involves the injection of a single spermatozoon directly inside the cytoplasm of the egg. It is a process that is performed by experienced embryologists under a specially modified microscope at high magnification using a micro-needle. It is a technique used when the sperm sample is very poor, or in cases where there has been little or no fertilisation after classical IVF.
