Fertility treatments

Treatments

Fertility treatments are available to help those having difficulty getting pregnant to have a healthy child. At IVI UK, we offer the following fertility treatments, which you can read further about on their individual information pages:

  • IVF treatment involves the fertilisation of an egg with a sperm in a laboratory. The resulting embryo is then transferred into a woman’s uterus for a possible pregnancy.
  • IVF with ICSI is a fertility treatment where a healthy individual sperm cell is injected directly into the egg for a higher fertilisation rate in cases of male infertility.
  • IUI is one of the most straightforward fertility treatments where sperm is artificially inseminated directly into a woman’s uterus by a Doctor for potential fertilisation of her released egg.
  • Egg Donation is available for women who require the use of donor eggs in order to have their own child. The donor eggs are fertilised with sperm, usually from the woman’s partner, to produce embryos. The healthiest embryo is then transferred into the women’s uterus for a possible pregnancy.

Do you want to preserve your fertility?

Treatments

Fertility preservation involves freezing and storing eggs, sperm or embryos. These techniques, including Egg Vitrification, are available at all IVI UK clinics. Egg Vitrification, a technique that IVI helped to pioneer, is available for women affected by cancer before chemotherapy/ radiotherapy and for those women wishing to preserve their fertility for future motherhood.
