Abstract

Assisted reproduction is the assistance provided to address infertility. All treatments of fertility in which handling of both egg and embryo is done are included in “assisted reproductive techniques (ARTs).” In these techniques, eggs from woman’s ovaries are surgically removed and combined in vitro with sperm and embryo is ultimatly returned to the uterine cavity. ARTs therefore incorporate a wide range of procedures that are used to overcome natural barriers in fertilization by directly collecting and in vitro handling of human gametes and replacement of embryo into the uterus. In this chapter, the main focus will be on the steps of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer with normal reproductive physiology and factors predicting the success of IVF.
