Midwest IVF : Dearborn, MI
In a fertile couple, pregnancy begins with the release of an ovum (egg) from the woman's ovaries. The egg enters the fallopian tube where it meets with the sperm that have traveled there, following intercourse, from the vagina. The sperm normally fertilize the egg in the fallopian tube. The fertilized egg, now called an embryo, begins to divide and in three days contains many cells. At this time, the embryo moves from the fallopian tube to the uterine cavity where it "floats" for another two to three days.
The embryo then implants in the uterine wall with a resultant pregnancy. If the fallopian tubes are blocked or damaged, fertilization and embryo transport cannot take place. In these cases in order to achieve a pregnancy we have to place fertilized eggs (i.e., embryos) directly into the uterus. IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) uterine transfer achieves remarkable pregnancies in women with hopelessly damaged fallopian tubes.
