The scientific process that involves using male sperm to fertilize a female egg outside the uterus is formally known as in vitro fertilization (IVF). During this process, a woman’s ovulation cycle is closely monitored because eggs need to be removed for fertilization. Once a healthy egg is removed, it is then injected with a sperm cell and left to fertilize. The fertilized egg (embryo) is cultured for up to a week before being implanted into a woman’s uterus.
