Artificial insemination is done by inserting specifically prepared sperm directly into the uterus using a catheter. It is one of the most popular methods and is often used together with fertility drugs to maximize success rates. This is generally used when infertility is attributed to the male partner.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
IVF is typically used when the female partner has damaged Fallopian tubes. It is a process using multiple steps to extract eggs from the female partner and fertilizing them with sperm in a lab. Once the embryo develops in the lab, one or two successful attempts are implanted into the uterus.
This method is used when a woman is unable to carry a child or when both partners are infertile. Surrogacy involves another woman carrying a child conceived using artificial insemination. While it is both popular and well-known, it may be stressful to manage and be quite costly.
