Egg retrieval: Under short sedation, a thin needle is inserted through the vaginal wall under ultrasonography guidance and oocytes retrieved.

Fertilization:

1) IVF: If a good number of Oocytes are retrieved, it is left in a dish with healthy sperms to fertilize naturally.
2) ICSI: If the number of oocytes is left and sperm count is also deficient, sperm is injected into oocytes to fertilize the egg.

Embryo Transfer: Finally, the healthiest embryo is transferred into the uterus. For further development, the rest of the embryos are preserved.
