Fertility Treatment Options

There are various assisted reproductive techniques that are available. The following are some treatment options available:

 

 1. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is the most advanced form of fertility treatment.

It involves the extraction of the egg before combining it with the sperm in the laboratory.

Superovulation is a procedure where two to three ovarian follicles (eggs) are stimulated and brought to maturation and ovulation.

It is usually combined with intrauterine insemination in which the prepared sperm is placed directly into the uterus. This procedure will enhance conception for the couple.

 

 2. Superovulation Intrauterine Insemination (SO-IUI)

Improves the chances of conception for couples with fertility issues. The average success rate is about 12-15% or 26% per patient after 3 cycles.

 

 3. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a form of assisted conception.

During IUI, your doctor will place prepared sperm into your uterus (womb) at your time of ovulation. Sperm are then in the right place at the right time when your eggs travel down the fallopian tube. This procedure is sometimes combined with fertility drugs to increase your chances of conceiving.

 

How long will treatment last?

The insemination itself is immediate and takes only a few minutes. If you are undergoing a stimulated cycle, you will need to take fertility drugs before you ovulate.
