In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
IVF is a widely-practiced assisted reproductive technology where eggs are extracted from a woman’s ovaries, fertilized with sperm in a lab, then transferred back into the woman’s uterus. IVF is used for various fertility challenges, including blocked fallopian tubes, male infertility, and unexplained infertility.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
IUI involves placing prepared and concentrated sperm directly into a woman’s uterus around the time of ovulation. This procedure enhances the chances of sperm reaching and fertilizing the egg. IUI is commonly used when there are issues with sperm quality, cervical mucus, or unexplained fertility problems.
Blastocyst transfer is a procedure used in IVF in which an embryo that has developed for five to seven days is implanted into the uterus. The term “blastocyst” refers to the developmental stage of the embryo, and transferring at this stage can have advantages such as reduced multiple pregnancy risk, improved implantation, and improved selection.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
ICSI is a specialized form of in vitro fertilization (IVF) where a single sperm is directly injected into an egg to achieve fertilization. This procedure is especially helpful in the treatment of male infertility.
Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)
TESE is a surgical procedure used to retrieve sperm directly from a man’s testicles, especially when sperm is not present in the ejaculate due to certain conditions. It is often utilized in conjunction with in vitro fertilization (IVF) techniques.
Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT)
PGT refers to a set of procedures performed on embryos prior to implantation during an IVF cycle. PGT aims to identify specific genetic defects or chromosomal abnormalities in embryos before they are transferred to the uterus. This allows for the selection of embryos that are more likely to develop into healthy babies, reducing the risk of genetic disorders and increasing the chances of a successful pregnancy.

Ovulation induction is a fertility treatment aimed at helping individuals or couples conceive by stimulating the ovaries to release eggs. Medications, such as hormones, are used to regulate and enhance ovulation, increasing the chances of successful fertilization. This treatment is commonly used for women with irregular ovulation patterns.
Surgical procedures in fertility treatment address anatomical issues that may hinder natural conception. Examples include correcting blocked fallopian tubes, removing uterine fibroids or polyps, and addressing endometriosis. These procedures aim to improve the chances of successful conception and pregnancy.
Donation & Gestational Carrying
Donation and gestational carriers involve third-party assistance in achieving pregnancy. Sperm or egg donation is when individuals use donated sperm or eggs for fertilization. Gestational carrying entails a woman carrying a pregnancy on behalf of another individual or couple. These options are chosen when individuals cannot conceive or carry a pregnancy themselves.
