Abstract

In vitro fertilization (IVF) represents a major technological advancement in fertility treatment. The steps include ovulation induction, oocyte retrieval, sperm preparation, fertilization and embryo transfer. In an attempt to simplify the fertilization process, we developed the intravaginal culture (IVC) at the Port Royal University Clinic in 1985.
