IVF Injection

With IVF, the woman is stimulated with subcutaneously injected medications to develop multiple egg development. Subcutaneous injections are given with a very small needle, just under the skin. This is the same way that diabetics give themselves insulin shots.

Two different injectable medications are used together in IVF cycles. One of these is to keep the eggs from ovulating prematurely and the other medication is to stimulate development of several eggs.
