Detailed Description:
Embryo transfer is the last step in the IVF process. it involves the insertion of a soft catheter through the uterine cervix. It is now recognized that this step should be done carefully and that it affects success rates. The embyos should be carefully deposited in the cavity. special care should be given to avoid touching the uterine fundus during the procedure. In recent years, sonographic guidance appears to increase success rates.
