Infertility means the inability to naturally conceive a child and fertility treatment is the medication and procedures undertaken by couples to help them become pregnant. Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) refers not only to IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) but also to the various fertility procedures which may be required. These are usually combined with conventional therapies like fertility drugs to increase success rates.

The list of types of Infertility mentioned in various sources includes : -
  • Male infertility
  • Female infertility

Types of Infertility Treatments

ART procedures sometimes involve the use of donor eggs (eggs from another woman), donor sperm, or previously frozen embryos. Donor eggs are sometimes used for women who cannot produce eggs. Also, donor eggs or donor sperm is sometimes used when the woman or man has a genetic disease that can be passed on to the baby. Let's examine.
  1. Intrauterine insemination (IUI): - A type of treatment for infertility. IUI is known by most people as artificial insemination. In this procedure, the woman is injected with specially prepared sperm. Sometimes the woman is also treated with medicines that stimulate ovulation. IUI is often used to treat mild male factors of infertility and/or women who have problems with their cervical mucus.

  2. Therapeutic Donor Insemination (TDI): - This infertility treatment option involves injecting sperm from an anonymous or known donor into a woman's cervix during ovulation. The use of frozen semen to prevent sexually transmitted disease is recommended by the FDA and the CDC. At sperm banks, donors are tested for sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis, etc. Commercial sperm banks are the source of donor sperm in the majority of cases. The sperm banks provide information about the physical characteristics, medical history, education, and ethnic or racial background of the donors. More recently, some donors have given permission to the sperm banks the ability to reveal their identities if requested by the child in the future.

  3. Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART): - A term that describes several different methods used to help infertile couples. ART involves removing eggs from a woman's body, mixing them with sperm in the laboratory and putting some of the embryos back into a woman's body.
    • In Vitro Fertilization (IVF): -Meaning fertilization outside of the body. IVF is the most effective ART. It is often used when a woman's fallopian tubes are blocked or when a man produces too few sperm. Doctors treat the woman with a drug that causes the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. Once mature, the eggs are removed and put in a dish in the lab along with the man's sperm for fertilization. After three to five days, healthy embryos are implanted in the woman's uterus.

    • Natural Cycle In Vitro Fertilization (NC-IVF) or Minimal Stimulation In Vitro Fertilization : - This provides women a more physiologically and natural approach to IVF. The rationale for natural or minimal stimulation cycle IVF is that it is more natural and in sync with her normal cycle. This approach allows the body to selects its own 'best eggs' for the cycle. Then the doctor will remove the most mature eggs from the ovaries via egg retrieval, put in a dish to fertilize in the lab and then implant back into the woman's uterus.

    • Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT): - This procedure involves transferring eggs and sperm into the woman's fallopian tube. So fertilization occurs in the woman's body.

    • Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI): - Often used for couples in which there are serious problems with the sperm. Sometimes it is also used for older couples or for those with failed IVF attempts. In ICSI, a single sperm is injected into a mature egg. Then the embryo is transferred to the uterus or fallopian tube.

Additional Infertility Treatments

Some anatomical fertility problems can be directly addressed with surgical and non-surgical infertility treatment.

Depending on the cause of the infertility, treatment will vary. For example, male infertility treatment will differ depending on the specific fertility problem. Male fertility treatments may or may not be surgical. Anatomical defects causing male infertility can be corrected by a vasoepididymostomy or a varicocelectomy. Both surgeries are effective infertility treatments for repairing physical flaws that inhibit male fertility. Male fertility treatment for a low sperm count or low sperm motility may include sperm retrieval and sperm preparation methods.

In addition to the methods outlined in the sections above, female infertility treatment may include surgery to correct structural causes of infertility including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and tubal obstruction. Some women trying to conceive may also add natural infertility treatments to their regimen when trying to get pregnant. These methods may include over the counter fertility drugs, fertility herbs, and acupuncture.
