    Several human in vitro fertilization (IVF) studies have suggested that shortening the time of sperm-oocyte exposure from the conventional duration of 14 to 16 hours to 1 to 2 hours may improve outcome. However, the impact of implementing such a change in a given IVF program may vary according to...
