What are the steps in IVF?

A typical IVF procedure usually consists of the following steps:

  1. Stimulation - Fertility drugs are given to the patient to produce multiple eggs so that the chances of fertilization increases. 
  2. Egg retrieval - Egg retrieval is also known as follicular aspiration, which is a surgical procedure. A needle is inserted into the ovary through the vagina, guided with ultrasound. The needle suctions eggs and fluid from the follicles.
