The purpose of this process is to regulate ovulation and increase the number of follicles produced in order to increase the possibility of pregnancy.

In vitro fertilization

Fertilization of the ova is carried out in the laboratory and once the embryos are formed they are introduced into the uterine cavity. The extraction of the ova is carried out with anaesthetic sedation. It is not recommended for patients older than 43 years. This is the most widely used procedure in the environment of assisted reproduction.
