IVF is a fertility treatment that involves using medication to stimulate egg production and a process where eggs are removed from a woman’s ovaries and then fertilized by sperm in a laboratory.
PGT-A (Preimplantation Genetic testing for Aneuploidy) is a breakthrough technology that can increase the success rate of IVF up to 70% in even high risk patients. It is part of Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS) in Canada, Vancouver BC.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is the process where sperm is injected directly into an egg to fertilize it in an IVF procedure.
Intrauterine insemination is a fertility treatment that involves inserting washed sperm into the uterus. It is done at the time of ovulation to improve the chances of pregnancy.
Donor sperm insemination is the process of placing sperm from an anonymous or known sperm donor into a woman’s uterus at the time of ovulation.
If you are unable to conceive using you own eggs, you could consider the option of using donor eggs from a known donor (a friend or family member) or from an egg bank.
Surrogacy is an arrangement in which a woman carries and delivers a child for another couple or person (called the "intended parents").
