What is infertility?
Infertility is a condition of the reproductive system that prevents conception of children and is defined as failure to conceive after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. About 80 % of couples who are regularly trying for a baby get pregnant within a year. An estimated one in seven couples have difficulty conceiving and women are usually less fertile as they get older.
What is assisted reproduction?
This is a terminology used to describe the different treatment options available to help those who have difficulty in conceiving a child naturally. These options usually involve handling and manipulation of eggs and/ or sperm in the lab to carry out simple procedures like artificial insemination/ intrauterine insemination (IUI) or more advanced procedures including in-vitro fertilization (IVF), intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and various other treatment
