Assisted reproduction technique is a boon to couples suffering from infertility and unable to become parents. ART technology such as IUI, IVF, ICSI brings the patients closer to fulfilling the dream of having the precious baby. The choice between IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), IUI (Intrauterine Insemination), or ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) depends on the specific causes of infertility for each individual or couple. It’s essential to consult with a fertility specialist to assess your medical history, perform male/female fertility assessment tests, and provide personalized treatment to increase the chances of pregnancy at the earliest. Below are general guidelines for when each treatment should be considered:

IUI (Intrauterine Insemination)

  • IUI is often recommended for couples with mild fertility issues, such as low sperm count or cervical mucus problems.
  • It is a less invasive and less expensive option compared to IVF and ICSI.
  • IUI may be suitable when there are no major barriers to natural conception, and the goal is to enhance the chances of sperm reaching the egg.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilization)

  • IVF is a more advanced and comprehensive fertility treatment suitable for a range of infertility issues.
  • It is often recommended for conditions such as tubal blockages, endometriosis, or unexplained infertility.
  • IVF involves retrieving eggs, fertilizing them with sperm in a laboratory, and then implanting the resulting embryos into the uterus.
  • IVF tends to have higher success rates compared to IUI, especially in cases of more complex infertility.
