IVM (In Vitro Maturation)

IVM (IN-VITRO-MATURATION)

IVM is an assisted reproductive technology which involves collecting eggs from a woman before they are matured. The eggs are then matured in a laboratory using a culture medium comprising small amounts of hormones. The matured eggs are manually fertilized using intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Once the development of the embryos begins, they are transferred to a woman’s womb.

Procedure

The IVM procedure retrieves the eggs when immature, and the woman is spared from the injections.

The new IVM procedure requires a few blood tests and transvaginal ultrasounds that are completed in less than a week.

Hormonal intakes in IVM are administered in the form of pills or suppository and about 90% scaled down in comparison to IVF. Also with little hormonal boosters, fewer tests in the lab.

Post egg retrieval and maturation the eggs and sperm are mixed in a dish or manually fertilized using intracytoplasmic sperm injection ((ICSI) both in IVF and IVM.
