What is IVF?

IVF stands for ‘In Vitro Fertilisation’. This means that fertilisation occurs outside the body in a test tube. IVF is therefore often called ‘test tube treatment’ or ‘artificial fertilisation’. IVF treatment can be provided both with partner sperm and with donor sperm.

IVF vs. ICSI – micro-insemination

In IVF treatment, approximately 100,000 sperm cells are added to the bowl with the retrieved egg. In the following hours, an attempt is made to fertilise the egg by a sperm cell. If IVF does not result in fertilisation and division of the egg, the ICSI method, also known as micro-insemination, can be considered instead. In ICSI, a single sperm cell is helped into the egg with a thin pipette.

Freezing of eggs

If there are suitable fertilised eggs which are not to be transferred to the uterus, you may choose to have them frozen so that you can use them later on, if your treatment does not result in pregnancy or if you want to have more children. This means that you avoid hormone therapy and egg retrieval in connection with your next attempt.

The course of IVF treatment

If you are to start IVF treatment, you can follow either a short or long protocol depending on which hormone therapy the doctor finds is best for you. Short protocol treatment is provided within the same menstrual cycle, whereas long protocol treatment stretches over approximately seven weeks.
