What is IVF?

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a procedure in which eggs from a woman’s ovaries are removed and then fertilised with sperm in a laboratory procedure. A fertilised egg (embryo) is then returned to the woman’s uterus. Any remaining embryos of sufficient quality can then be frozen and stored for future use if desired.

What is ICSI?

Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a laboratory procedure used alongside IVF treatment for some couples with male factor infertility. In the ICSI procedure, a single sperm is injected directly into each egg to achieve fertilisation.

What is IUI?

Intra Uterine Insemination is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman's uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization

IUI treatment if only recommend if there is evidence of healthy fallopian tubes in the female partner.  Patients will be individually assessed and careful consideration will take place before this treatment is offered.  IUI would be recommended if:

  • You/your partner have a borderline low sperm count or reduced motility
  • You’re unable to have sex with your partner because of disability, injury or a psychosexual problem
