ART : Helping You To Begin Your Family

Assisted Reproductive Technology or ART can be defined as a reproductive technology used for infertility treatment. This fertility treatment method makes use of fertility medication, in vitro fertilization to achieve pregnancy.

Types of Assisted Reproductive Technology

In order to help people to achieve pregnancy assisted reproductive technology covers a wide spectrum of treatments, depending on the cause of infertility. The following are some of the assisted reproductive technology:

Ovulation Induction (OI): This type of treatment technology is used in women who are not ovulating or not ovulating regularly. In this procedure, a tablet or injection ( hormone medication) will be given to increase the production of follicle stimulating hormone. This results in the development of one or more follicles and by using the administration of another hormone egg will be released from the follicle. The chances of conception greatly increase, if the couple has intercourse around this time.

Artificial Insemination (AI): Artificial insemination or Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a treatment technology used in women with healthy fallopian tubes, but cannot conceive due to unknown reasons. In this procedure, just before the time of ovulation the semen is inserted into the uterus of the woman through the cervix.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF): In this procedure the eggs are removed from the ovary and fertilized with the sperm in a laboratory procedure, then the fertilized eggs or embryo is transferred to the uterus.

Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT): In this procedure the eggs retrieved from the ovaries are inserted into two layers of sperm in fine tubing. Then the sperm and eggs are allowed to fertilize naturally by feeding this tube into the woman's fallopian tubes.

Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI): ICSI involves the injection of a single sperm into the egg to achieve fertilization

Beat Infertility by Intra Uterine Insemination

What is IUI?

          IUI or Intrauterine insemination is a fertility treatment which involves a laboratory procedure to separate fast-moving sperm from low motile or non-moving sperm and placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The main goal of IUI is to increase the chance of fertilization by increasing the number of sperms that reach the fallopian tubes. This can be performed with your partner’s sperm or donor sperm (known as donor insemination). You can approach Vijaya Fertility clinic because it's one of the Best Infertility Center in Kerala.

When is IUI used?

IUI may be selected as a fertility treatment for any of the following conditions:

low sperm count or low sperm mobility.
Unexplained infertility
A hostile cervical condition like cervical mucus problems
Cervical scar tissue which may hinder the ability of sperm to enter the uterus 
Ejaculation dysfunction

How is IUI performed? 

The following are the steps of IUI Procedure.

  • At First, the woman will be  given medications to stimulate development of multiple eggs. Then the insemination is timed to coincide with release of the eggs (ovulation).
  • Man will be asked to produce a semen specimen after 2-5 days of abstinence from ejaculation.
  • The sperm will be separated from the other components of the semen and concentrated in a small volume by using a process called Sperm processing or Sperm Washing.
  • The cervical area is gently cleaned and a speculum is placed in the vagina.
  • The highly motile sperm of washed specimen is placed either in the cervix or uterine cavity using a sterile flexible catheter. 
  • The process of placing the sperm in the cervix is known as intracervical insemination or ICI and in the uterine cavity is known as intrauterine insemination, IUI.
