Specialized Infertility Services
IUI is the process of placing processed semen sample containing motile sperms through the cervix into the uterine cavity around the time of ovulation.
IVF refers to a procedure where the woman's eggs are removed from her ovaries and fertilised with the man's sperm in a laboratory. The embryos formed are then put back into the uterus to achieve a pregnancy.
Naturally, the fertilisation process involves the penetration of a single sperm from the ejaculate into the egg (called oocyte in scientific terms) released during the menstrual cycle. Said sperm must penetrate the shell of the oocyte (called zona pellucida) to immediately fuse with the female gamete.
