Thinking about Fertility treatment?

IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation

IVF literally means fertilisation in glass or otherwise 'Test Tube Baby'.In this treatment, eggs collected from the female partner are fertilised in the laboratory. In a nut shell, during the IVF process, eggs are removed from the ovaries and fertilised with sperm in the laboratory. The fertilised egg (embryo) is later placed in the woman’s womb. 

IVF techniques can differ from clinic to clinic, often depending on your individual circumstances.

IUI - Intrauterine insemination

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) involves a laboratory procedure to separate fast moving sperm from more sluggish or non-moving sperm. The fast moving sperm are then placed into the woman’s womb close to the time of ovulation when the egg is released from the ovary in the middle of the monthly cycle.  

It is essential that your fallopian tubes are known to be open and healthy before the IUI process begins. A tubal patency test is usually carried out as part of your assessment by the fertility clinic.  

ICSI - Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection

Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) involves injecting a single sperm directly into an egg in order to fertilise it. The fertilised egg (embryo) is then transferred to the woman’s womb.  

The major development of ICSI means that as long as some sperm can be obtained (even in very low numbers), fertilisation is possible.   

PGD - Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis 

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a technique that enables people with a specific inherited condition in their family to avoid passing it on to their children. It involves checking the genes of embryos created through IVF for this genetic condition.
