IVF is an extremely labor-intensive and lengthy process that demands numerous hospitalizations for ovary stimulations, ultrasounds and bloodwork. When the ovaries are stimulated, the physician will then remove the ova, and fertilize it using sperms taken from the laboratory partner. In the three-to-five days following fertilization, the doctor places one or two embryos into the uterus. Following about two weeks of gestation, the doctor checks whether the process worked.
