An infertility study is begun when a couple has been unsuccessful for one year in trying to conceive a child. It involves checking:
Artificial insemination is a very straightforward treatment that consists of first selecting a sample of sperm in the laboratory through a process called sperm capacitation. The sperm suspension is then introduced into the uterine cavity. Insemination can be performed using either semen from the male partner (IAC) or from intervention of a donor (IAD), in which case an authorised sperm bank is used.
IVF begins with a cycle of ovulatory stimulation with the goal of making several eggs (ova) mature, which are then recovered and cultured with a determined quantity of sperm cells that have been previously selected through the process of sperm capacitation. Once the highest-quality embryos are selected, they are transferred to the uterus two or three days after follicular puncture (egg retrieval).
The sperm microinjection (ICSI) technique consists of the introduction of a sperm cell into the interior part of an egg. It can even be carried out with sperm samples of very low quality, as only one sperm cell per retrieved egg is required. It is also a possibility for azoospermic patients who have had a testicular biopsy. Just as in IVF, egg retrieval (follicular puncture) is facilitated by ultrasound, following ovarian stimulation. The eggs that are fertilised will then be cultured in the laboratory until they are transferred to the uterus, just as in IVF.
