Oocyte vitrification or egg freezing is the process by which mature eggs or oocytes are collectedfrom a woman’s ovaries and frozen for use at a later time to try for a pregnancy.
Ovulation induction refers to the use of fertility drugs to induce ovulation in a woman who does not ovulate herself. ‘Superovulation’ is what we call the boosting effect this drug has.
IUI (Intra-Uterine Insemination) involves obtaining a semen sample from the male partner around the time of ovulation, preparing it in the laboratory and then placing it in the woman’s uterus.
With IVF treatment, eggs are removed from the ovary just before ovulation. The eggs and sperm are then placed together outside the body in a specialised laboratory environment in a petri dish. If fertilization and normal embryo development occurs, the best embryo(s) is (are) returned to the uterus (womb) 2-5 days later.
Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a method of inseminating eggs. It involves injecting a single sperm directly into an egg using a fine glass needle (as opposed to standard IVF where the sperm has to penetrate the egg by itself)
