any of a number of medical procedures, treatments and techniques designed to help infertile couples achieve and maintain a pregnancy.
A group of therapies that employ manipulation of the egg and/or sperm and/or early conceptus in order to establish a pregnancy.
All treatments or procedures that involve surgically removing eggs from a woman's ovaries and combining the eggs with sperm to help a woman become pregnant. The types of ART are in vitro fertilization, gamete intrafallopian transfer, and zygote intrafallopian transfer.
See IVF, GIFT, ZIFT, ICSI, TESA, MESE
procedures that involve the surgical removal of eggs from the ovary to assist in successful fertilization of the egg and sperm. Basal body temperature (BBT): A woman's temperature upon waking in the morning before any activity. Taken orally, it helps to determine ovulation. A special thermometer, available in pharmacies, must be used for the test. Cervix: The lower part of the uterus
Fertility treatments or procedures that involve laboratory handling of gametes ( eggs and sperm) or embryos. Examples of ARTs include in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
A variety of procedures used to bring about conception without sexual intercourse, including IVF and GIFT.
Used to assist couples in overcoming infertility through the joining of the sperm and egg outside of the body and the transfer of resulting embryos. These procedures include: In Vitro Fertilization, Donor Oocyte IVF, Micromanipulation (ICSI and AH), Cryopreservation of embryos and sperm related procedures.
Assisted reproductive technologies (ART) refer to advanced fertility techniques such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) which are used to bring eggs and sperm together to help achieve pregnancy.
Procedures that unite sperm and eggs and bypass some of the factors causing infertility. The most common ART procedures include in vitro fertilization (IVF), Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), and Zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT).
All treatments which include laboratory handling of eggs, sperm, and/or embryos. Some examples of ART are in vitro fertilization (IVF), gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), pronuclear stage tubal transfer (PROST), tubal embryo transfer (TET), and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT).
Techniques and procedures which are available to help infertile couples achieve pregnancy after other surgical and hormonal methods have failed. These include such procedures as IVF, GIFT and ZIFT/PROST.
A collective name for advanced infertility treatments utilizing invitro (laboratory) techniques to assist with gamete handling and fertilization. Includes in-vitro fertilization embryo transfer (IVF-ET) gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT) and tubal embryo transfer (TET), intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and assisted hatching.
The new forms of fertility treatment incorporate many methods of sperm retrieval and preparation. Once the sperm have been processed to ensure optimal fertilizing potential, they are used in a variety of procedures that aid the process of conception. These procedures include artificial insemination (AI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), and sperm microinjection techniques.
All treatments or procedures that include the handling of human oocytes or embryos for the pupose of generating a pregnancy. That is, all procedures that begin with the removal of oocytes from the ovary. This would include in vitro fertilization (IVF), gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), frozen embryo transfer (FET) and related procedures.
(ART) - A group of therapies that manipulate the egg and/or sperm and/or fertilized egg to establish a pregnancy.
The collective name for all techniques used artificially to assist women to carry children, including IVF and ICSI.
These are biomedical procedures utilized to improve the chances for getting sperm and eggs together. Included are the procedures such as intrauterine insemination, conventional IVF and micromanipulations.
Medical techniques in which fertilization of a human egg by a sperm is attempted outside the human body in an embryology laboratory. These techniques employ fertility medications and sophisticated medical procedures. In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most common.
