IVF (in vitro fertilization). Involves extracting a woman''s eggs, fertilizing the eggs in the laboratory, and then transferring the resulting embryos into the woman''s uterus through the cervix. For some IVF procedures, fertilization involves a specialized technique known as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). In ICSI a single sperm is injected directly into the woman''s egg.
