In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
IVF is a treatment in which the mature eggs collected from the ovaries are fertilized outside the body. During the procedure, the eggs are fertilized by sperm in a lab and the embryo is implanted in the uterus.

In case more than one embryo is transferred to the uterus, IVF can result in a multiple pregnancy —posing health risks for mother and child. Fetal reduction can be thought of use to help a woman deliver fewer babies with less health risks for a better IVF experience.
IVF, ICSI and IUI are the most common available Infertility treatment options which can be further customised to suit individual medical fitments.
ICSI means Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, a further refinement of the IVF technique. This line of treatment is to overcome male fertility issues, such as low sperm count or poor sperm mobility, which prevents sperm from fertilising the egg naturally.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
It is a medical treatment which involves the placement of sperm inside a woman's uterus when she is ovulating. It is done to facilitate fertilization and to increase the number of sperms that meet the fallopian tubes.
