ii) The different stages of the procedure

There are 3 main stages to this straightforward procedure:

   
Stage 1 the gametes, inseminated or injected eggs or zygotes are enclosed in the AneVivo device and placed in the maternal uterine cavity during fertilization and / or the early development stages. 
   
Stage 2 After the chosen development period the AneVivo device and embryos are retrieved from the uterine cavity. At this stage, depending on the specific treatment, the embryos may be cultured in vitro for a short period. 
   
Stage 3 The embryos are assessed in the laboratory. An embryologist will select the best quality embryos and the required number will be transferred to the uterine cavity using the traditional embryo transfer procedure with the objective of implantation.
