imgWhat is
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a form of treatment where sperm are inserted into the uterine cavity around the time of ovulation.
IUI can be carried out in a natural cycle, without the use of drugs, or the 5 ovaries may be stimulated with oral anti-estrogens or gonaclotrobhins.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most common and most effective type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) to help women become pregnant. The IVFprocedure involves fertilizing an egg outside the body, in a laboratory dish, and then implanting it in a woman's uterus.
In Vitro Fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) commonly referred to as IVF. IVF is the process of fertilization by extracting eggs, retrieving a sperm sample, and then manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. The embryo(s) is then transferred to the uterus.
Using the ICSI Procedure to Get Pregnant. Thanks to the wonders of science, doctors can now inject a single, tiny sperm directly into an egg during a procedure called intracytoplasmic sperm ICSI is very similar to conventional IVF in that gametes (eggs and sperm) are collected from each partner. The difference between the two procedures is the method of achieving fertilisation. In conventional IVF, the eggs and sperm are mixed together in a dish and the sperm fertilises the egg 'naturally'.injection (ICSI). This procedure may increase your chances of success with IVF.
Egg donor IVF is a fertility treatment option for those who can’t use their own eggs, for whatever reason.
Where Will I Find an Egg Donor?
Your fertility doctor can discuss with you in detail your options for finding an egg donor.
That said, the most common sources include...

  • the fertility clinic offering you IVF treatment
  • an egg donor agency
  • an egg bank (in this case, frozen eggs)
  • someone you already know (a friend or family member)
  • another infertile couple (who is willing to share their retrieved eggs with you)

Depending on the contract you sign, you may get a chance to meet your egg donor, or you may never have any contact with them.
Some donors will agree to be contacted in the future by the donor-conceived offspring.
Vitrification for Egg, Sperm, and Embryo Freezing
In the fertility world, vitrification is used for cryopreservation of eggs, embryos, and sperm. Generally speaking, vitrification is a method of transforming something into a glass-like substance. It comes from the Latin root vitreum, which means glass. Vitrification technology is used to transform sand into glass, to give ceramic pots their glossy finished look, and to stabilize nuclear waster for safer disposal.
Vitrification has improved the success of cryopreservation. The old methods involved a slow freeze, while vitrification is extremely quick.
How quick? During the vitrification, an embryo or egg is cooled off by thousands of degrees per minute.
Sperm donation is the provision (or "donation") by a man (known as a sperm donor) of his sperm (known as donor sperm), principally for it to be used in the artificial insemination of a female or females who are not his sexual partners.
Donor sperm and 'fertility treatments' using donor sperm may be obtained at a sperm bank or fertility clinic. Here, the recipient may select donor sperm on the basis of the donor's characteristics, such as looks, personality, academic ability, race, and many other factors. Sperm banks or clinics may be subject to state or professional regulations, including restrictions on donor anonymity and the number of offspring that may be produced, and there may be other legal protections of the rights and responsibilities of both recipient and donor. Some sperm banks, either by choice or regulation, limit the amount of information available to potential recipients; a desire to obtain more information on donors is one reason why recipients may choose to use a known donor or private donation.
