IVF

The most common fertility treatment, IVF involves matured egg cells being extracted and mixed with approximately 50,000 prepared sperm cells of her partner or donor. The egg cells are fertilised in a lab, and if this is successful, usually two embryos will be transferred to the womb after two to five days.

In vitro fertilisation

ICSI

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI, is a procedure whereby a single sperm cell is injected with a tiny needle into the egg. This procedure is recommended if the number of suitable sperm is not enough for regular IVF.

IUI

Intrauterine insemination, or IUI, is a kind of insemination that involves transferring optimised sperm into the uterus of the person with female organs. It is a less invasive form of fertility treatment and often less expensive, though chances of success are lower than with IVF.

Intrauterine insemination

TESE

Ocassionally, there will be no sperm cells in the ejaculate of the person with male organs. If this is the case, it may be possible to extract the cells through a biopsy from the testicular tissue (TESE) and used for artificial insemination via ICSI (see: above).

Hormone treatment

Injections of fertility hormones LH and FSH Hormone ensure that ovulation occurs and that the egg maturation is stimulated before artificial insemination.

Cryopreservation

Cyropreservation can be useful if more eggs are than needed are extracted after hormone treatment. These eggs then can be carefully frozen and used later for another cycle of artificial insemination.

Embryo transfer

Embryos obtained through artificial fertilisation are transferred into the uterine cavity using a very thin catheter, which is quick and painless.

Embryo transfer

Blastocyst transfer

During IVF/ICSI, successful embryos (blastocycts) are implanted into the uterus, usually on or around day five.

Sperm donation

TFP has a large pool of approved donors across their centres, meaning both same-sex and heterosexual couples needing sperm for their treatment have a great chance of finding a suitable match.

RI Witness

Sample mix-ups in the IVF laboratory are disastrous for parents. Though rare, TFP work with RI Witness technology to ensure that all samples and test tubes are assigned to the right patients.

PBD

Polar body diagnosis (PBD) is where the clinic performs an investigation into the chromosomes of female genetic material. They will check that there are no abnormalities that would result in an early termination.

PGT

To prevent congenital genetic disorders in children of couples with genetic risk factors, pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) investigates embryos before their transfer to the womb.

Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an increasingly respected and utilised accessory to fertility treatment. It can help both physical and emotional symptoms that occur before and during infertility therapy.

Also known as egg freezing, women of childbearing age have the possibility of freezing their eggs to be used later in fertility treatments, if the time is not right for pregnancy now.
