Our expert says:
This is a complex question to answer in this forum but in essence it involves the fertilization of egg and sperm in an in-vitro environment (laboratory fertilization). The procedure is valuable in cases were the fertilization process cannot occur naturally such as patients were there is total tubal obstruction or were ovulation is sub-optimal and/or in cases were the sperm quality is inadequate.
