IUI is a fertility treatment where the sperm is placed in the uterus for fertilization. The purpose of IUI is to increase the number of sperms that reaches the egg and thus increase the chance of fertilization.
This process gives a headstart to the sperm but it still demands the sperm to reach and fertilise an egg. This is an inexpensive method to treat infertility compared to IVF.


Fertilisation (Combining oocyte and sperm) outside human body is In Vitro Fertilisation


Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection is performed as an additional part of an IVF treatment cycle where a single sperm is injected into each egg to assist fertilisation using very fine micro-manipulation equipment. In most cases, ICSI can be used to overcome severe male infertility.


Embryo freezing is done when there are more embryos developed than required for transfer into the uterus.
These embryos are frozen in liquid nitrogen and can be utilized in future.
Embryos are also frozen if the endometrial thickness (lining of the uterus) is less than 8mm. In this case endometrial thickness is developed in next cycles and frozen embryos are utilized.
When frozen embryos are utilized; patient does not have to take injections for stimulation.
Success rate for fresh embryo transfer and frozen embryo transfer is almost same.


Oocyte literally means egg. Oocyte freezing is a procedure to preserve the eggs.As the age increases the number of eggs that a woman can produce is decreased. The quality of the eggs is also hampered. The quality of the Oocyte decreases once the woman reaches age 35.With her biological clock ticking, egg freezing is very good option for women to preserve the fertility. When she is ready to conceive, she can use her own frozen eggs for IVF/ICSI-ET.


Semen freezing (commonly called sperm banking) is a process in which sperm cells are preserved. Semen can be used successfully for a long time after freezing them. Sperm can be used in future for many purposes like assisted reproductive technology or they can also be donated.


Embryo Donation – If a couple cannot produce both oocytes and sperms then the embryo donation method can be used. A patient who has produced extra embryos may donate some to another couple. Consents of both the couples are taken for this procedure.
By utilizing donor sperm and donor eggs, the subsequent developing embryos give a high rate of achievement. After the sperm are utilized to treat the eggs, embryos are cultured (developed) to day 5 or 6, otherwise called the blastocyst stage.


In some patients the ovarian function is very much reduced so that they cannot produce eggs themselves (ovarian failure). These patients can achieve pregnancy if the oocytes of another patient are used to produce the embryo. The written consent of both the patients (oocyte donor and oocyte recipient) is required for this procedure.


For infertile patients with azoospermia ,donor sperms can be used with their consent. The samples are taken from sperm banks. The donors undergo various tests like HIV, VDRL, Australia Antigen to prevent risk of infection. The samples are frozen for 6 months after which the donors undergo the tests once more. If they are negative then their frozen samples are used to achieve pregnancy. Matching donor samples can be selected with respect to height, complexion, hair colour etc. and complete confidentiality is maintained.
