Vitro-Maturationby Carder

With IVM, we’re doing the retrieval when the follicles and eggs are immature — so they’re very tiny. We mature them in a petri dish under special culture conditions, which takes about 48 hours, and then we fertilize them. The patient undergoes a short, three-day course of hormone injections followed by hormone supplementation to prepare the uterine lining for implantation.

From there out, the process is just like IVF, but without additional injections.
