In-vitro fertilization is a treatment for infertility. It is used in all forms of persistent infertility, and involves the induction of ovulation with gonadotropins and GnRHa. In in-vitro fertilization, the ovum of the reproductive female is retrieved and inseminated with sperm from the reproductive male. The fertilization of oocytes then occurs in the lab, followed by embryo transfer 3-5 days later to achieve implantation.
