Types of Assisted Reproductive Technologies

01

Intrauterine insemination

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a method of artificial insemination by depositing sperm directly into the uterine cavity. It is applied in specific indications, including couples with unexplained infertility.

02

IVF (classis IVF)

Classic in vitro fertilization (IVF) is a method in which the mature eggs, collected by follicular aspiration, are brought together with the partner’s sperm in the lab, so they are fertilized.

03

ICSI/ IMSI

ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is a method that is most often applied when dealing with the so-called male factor infertility, or more specifically, with poor sperm parameters. IMSI is a modification of the same method.

Which method ist best for your case?

Having difficulty conceiving does not necessarily mean that any of those methods have to be used. In some cases, fertility issues are due to light hormonal imbalances. These could be successfully treated with adequate therapy or lifestyle changes so that spontaneous pregnancy can occur. In other cases, however, resorting to the methods of assisted reproduction is indeed necessary.

Which method is applicable in your case is a decision of your fertility consultant, after a careful workup and assessment of your medical history, previous tests, and current status, as well as additional tests and consultations where necessary. At ‘Nadezhda’, we focus on the personalized approach to every case, together with interdisciplinary work by our team for optimal care and best results.
