IUI is used to sift out sturdy sperm from flaccid ones and these are later washed and placed into the woman’s uterus during the ovulation period.
Fertilization in glass is done to create a test tube baby. During this process, eggs are removed from the woman’s ovaries and artificially grown in a suitable environment.
Our specialists use the ICSI technique wherein a single sperm is injected directly into the egg for fertilization, after which the embryo (fertilised egg) is transferred to the woman’s womb.
Ultrasound or sonography is a technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to display images of structures within the body. A gel is applied to the skin in the area where the examination is to be conducted.
Through cutting edge technology, it is not possible to perform minimally invasive surgeries with finesse and precision.
In this procedure, a glycoprotein layer hemming of the plasma membrane of mammalian oocytes if opened slightly to attenuate through an anodyne laser.
This technique involves the development of an embryo in a lab environment for about 4 to 6 days after the fertilisation process and before being transferred to the womb.
In this technique, eggs, embryos, and sperm are frozen at sub-zero temperatures in order to preserve them for when they’re needed in the future.

The first step involved injecting hormones so you can produce multiple eggs every month instead of one. Later, testing is done to determine if the egg is ready for retrieval.
Success rates depend on many factors such as the reason for infertility itself. Age is also an important factor.
Embryos that aren’t used during the first IVF attempt are frozen and can be used later. This saves you money if you are to undergo a second or third attempt. Unwanted embryos can be donated.
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive a child. It may result from an issue with either you or your partner or other factors that prevent pregnancy. There are several factors that can cause infertility such as age, ovulation disorders, uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, etc. Fortunately, there are many safe and effective treatment options that can improve your chances of getting pregnant.
The causes of male infertility include low sperm production, abnormal sperm function, any blockage that prevents the delivery of sperm. Other factors include illnesses, injuries, chronic health conditions, lifestyle choices, etc.
The most common cause of infertility in women is problems with ovulation which can be caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Other causes of infertility in women are:
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a procedure that helps with fertilization, embryo development, and implantation and assists with the conception of a child. In the procedure, mature eggs are collected from ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab.
The factors which increase the risk of infertility in women are age, smoking, being overweight or underweight, sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea, alcohol consumption, etc.
The factors which increase the risk of infertility in men are smoking tobacco, drinking alcohol, being overweight, overheating the testicles, being severely depressed or stressed, having a history of undescended testicles, having certain medical conditions like tumors and sickle cell disease.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a procedure for treating infertility and is also called as donor insemination, alternative insemination, or artificial insemination. During the procedure, the fertility specialist put sperm directly into the uterus when you are ovulating. It helps the sperm to get closer to the egg and cut down on time and distance that sperm take to travel which makes it easier to fertilize your egg.
The treatment options for male infertility are:
Surgery: some health conditions like varicocele
