The egg is directed into the Fallopian tube. Then, if the egg is not fertilized within 24 hours with the help of sperm, then the procedure is repeated. Only one sperm can enter the egg and fertilize it. If fertilization occurs, then the embryo is implanted in the interior lining of the uterus of woman. It takes around 3 days for the implantation to take place after the formation of the embryo. In IVF, FSH is administered to the woman with assistance of ultrasound. In some cases, sperm reaches the egg and enters it for embryo formation. In some cases, certain additional steps are performed where the embryologist injects sperm into the egg which make it important for the utilization of procedures such as ICSI.

After the eggs are retrieved from the woman, the embryologist in the IVF lab performs egg assessment to make sure that only quality eggs are utilized in the IVF procedure. The layers of cells around eggs are removed so that the embryologist checks the egg quality thoroughly. Insemination procedure is performed to make sure that only quality sperms are utilized in the procedure. On an average as per the latest research, 50,000 sperms are considered for 2-3 eggs in the procedure of fertilization. In the IVF ICSI procedure, the specialist directly injects one sperm into the mature egg for the fertilization procedure to take place. The semen sample is chosen after washing and concentrating the sperm in the lab itself. The embryo thus formed is categorized with the help of grading steps. The embryologist monitors the embryo carefully starting from the cleavage stage and then puts it in incubator for further division of the embryos if required. The embryologist picks up the embryos in the catheter attached to a syringe. This syringe is used by the infertility specialist to insert the embryo in the body of the woman.
