The video describes a procedure known as In-Vitro Fertilization which is a form of assisted pregnancy for those who may not be able to conceive naturally. The video begins with the description of the structure and parts of the female reproductive system and goes on to describe the ovulation process, starting from the ovary to the fallopian tube. The conditions for pregnancy are then discussed along with the fertilization process where the sperm and ovum unite. The embryo then travels to the uterus where implantation takes place and forms the placenta that acts as the connection between the mother and child. The conditions for IVF to be implemented are also listed, some of them being infertility, single parenthood etc. The steps involved with IVF include fertility medication, a semen sample and then a set of 3 processes: follicle aspiration where eggs are harvested from the ovaries using a suction device connected to a needle, fertilization where the eggs are placed in a petri-dish and artificially inseminated using the semen sample collected and finally embryo transfer where the fertilized egg is transferred to the uterus which is subjected to hormone therapy to help implantation.
