Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) 

IUI is a fertility treatment, which uses a catheter to place a number of washed sperm directly into the uterus. The objective of IUI is to enhance the number of sperm that reaches the Fallopian tubes, and then increase the prospect of fertilization.


In Verto Fertilization (IVF)

IVF is the process by which eggs are removed from your ovaries and mixed with sperm in a laboratory culture dish. Fertilization takes place in this dish, "in vitro", which means "in glass". 


Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
