Caption: Preparing for IVF treatment. Doctor preparing a micro-neeedle for use in in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The needle is used to inject human sperm into a human egg cell in a technique known as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The injected sperm fertilises the egg. The resulting zygote is then grown in the lab until it reaches an early stage of embryonic development. It is then implanted in the uterus. Several embryos are usually implanted to give the greatest chance of a successful pregnancy. However, this can result in multiple births. IVF allows infertile couples to conceive a child.
