Around 400 babies are born through In Vitro Maturation (IVM) technique round the globe daily. Under ultrasound scan guidance immature eggs are collected from unstimulated or lightly stimulated ovaries. The immature eggs are then matured in the laboratory for 24-48 hours using culture medium with added small quantities of hormones. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is used for fertilization of the matured eggs. The resulting embryos are transferred to the women’s wombs.
This remarkable fertility treatment was developed to provide a safer, healthier and cheaper alternative to conventional IVF. Improved IVM techniques are developing very fast and an increasing number of fertility clinics are offering IVM. The concept of IVM technology remains attractive.
