FAQ | Fertility

What options are available to treat infertility?

Depending on the reason for the infertility, there may be several treatment options. For example:

Timed intercourse – Assuming there are no obvious medical reasons for either partner to be considered infertile, Timing Intercourse may be recommended. This may include regular visits to a medical professional who will help determine when the woman is ovulating so that intercourse may be scheduled.

Artificial insemination – putting of washed semen into the uterus by using artificial means to coincide with ovulation.

ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) – is the process of injecting sperm directly into oocytes to aid fertilisation, used in conjunction with IVF.

IVF with egg donation – using donor eggs, as opposed to the recipient’s, for the IVF process.

GIFT/ZIFT – Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT) are modifidied versions of in-vitro fertilisation where gametes or embryos are transferred through the Fallopian tube in a prepared cycle.

PGD and assisted hatching are laboratory techniques to try and improve success rates.
