Artificial Insemination – (ICI and IUI)
This is a relatively simple method of treatment, involves placing the sperm in the cervix (as a thawed semen preparation) – often referred to as ICI – or directly into the womb (as a washed culture of spermatozoa) – usually referred to as Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI).
Super-ovulation & Intrauterine Insemination – (SO & IUI)
The recipient is stimulated with hormones to produce multiple eggs (a maximum of 3) and at the appropriate time an intra-uterine insemination is performed.
IVF with donor sperm:
This may be necessary when the female partner in the recipient couple has other medical conditions that require her to have IVF.
IVF & ICSI with donor sperm:
Sometimes the sperm does not survive the freeze-thaw process well and therefore the IVF procedure is combined with injection of the sperm into the egg (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI).
