  • Intra uterine insemination. (IUI)
  • These entail deposition of washed and capacitated sperm into the uterus at the time of spontaneous or induced ovulation. The success rate of these procedure is in between 10-20 % . 3-6 cycles are generally advocated before going to other ART procedure.
  • IVF,ET (Invitro fertilization & Embryo transfer)
  • This was the original test tube baby procedure wherein a woman is subjected to controlled ovarian hyper stimulation with gonadotrophins for obtaining more than one egg. Once the follicles are 18-20 mm, HCG administered & the Oocytes are aspirated at 36 hours post HCG & transferred to IVF lab.
  • Success rate is between 35-40 %.
  • ICSI(Intra cytoplasmic sperm injection)
  • This technique has been a great boon to male factor infertility which does not respond to conventional management. A man with severe Oligo or Asthenozoospermia can still have their own child. As with IVF women’s Oocytes are aspirated .On a special microscope with micromanipulator a single sperm is injected into the Oocytes. For azoospermic males sperms can be aspirated by PESA or TESA and injected into the Oocytes.
