The main difference between both assisted reproduction techniques is that in AI, fertilization takes place inside the female reproductive tract, while in IVF, fertilization takes place in the laboratory and it is later when the embryos created in vitro are transferred to the woman's uterus.

In addition, the ovarian stimulation doses are different as well as the requirements and indications, among other aspects.
