Infertility can be addressed through assisted reproductive technology. The most common treatments are artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization.

Many couples undergo assisted reproduction techniques to have a child. This set of techniques and treatments is recommended to those people who are diagnosed with any fertility problem in order to become pregnant.
In vitro fertilization is a fertility procedure through which egg-sperm binding occurs in the laboratory, aiming at obtaining an embryo that will be later transferred into the woman so that pregnancy occurs.
Egg vitrification and freezing is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) that allows the preservation of female fertility in order to have the chance of being a mother in the future when the woman is ready to do so.
It’s hard to choose what to do with leftover embryos in reproductive treatments. One option is to donate them to other couples.
To perform an ICSI, it is necessary to follow a series of steps which range from controlled ovarian hyperstimulation from embryo transfer.
Some assisted reproductive techniques, such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or ICSI, perform egg fertilisation outside the woman’s body. For this reason, embryo culture is necessary up to the day in which the embryo transfer is performed.
The main advantage o
Regular growth of follicles is the main advantage of using GnRH analogues as a medicine in assisted reproduction for ovarian induction.
It is a technique by which the embryos grown in the laboratory are placed into the maternal uterus. The transfer can be carried out on day 3 or on day 5 of the embryionic development.
A new study proposes the transfer of the embryos 5 days after the embryo culture, instead of 3 days after. According to this study, it may increase the pregnancy rate and, conversely, decrease the rate of multiple births.
