In Vitro Fertilisation usually involves a technique known as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). This relatively recent technique has enabled great progress to be made in the treatment of male fertility problems. It entails inseminating an egg by micro-injecting a sperm into it.

With ICSI, only one sperm per egg is needed. The fertilised egg becomes a pre-embryo and is transferred to the uterus to continue developing. Depending on your circumstances, we can offer you one of these four options:

In Vitro Fertilisation

In Vitro Fertilisation

Own eggs and partner’s sperm

In Vitro Fertilisation with your own eggs and your partner’s semen is a laboratory technique consisting in fertilising previously harvested eggs with your partner’s sperm.

In Vitro Fertilisation

Own eggs and donor sperm

In Vitro Fertilisation with your own eggs and sperm from the sperm bank is a laboratory technique consisting of fertilising previously harvested eggs with sperm from an anonymous donor.

In Vitro Fertilisation

Donor eggs and partner’s sperm

In Vitro Fertilisation with donor eggs and your partner’s sperm is a laboratory technique that consists in fertilising a donor’s eggs with your partner’s sperm.

In Vitro Fertilisation

Donor eggs and donor sperm

In Vitro Fertilisation with donor eggs and donor sperm is a laboratory technique consisting in placing previously harvested donor eggs with donor sperm; both donors remain anonymous.

Blastocyst culture

Transfer of embryos at blastocyst stage

In an In Vitro Fertilization treatment with one’s own or donor eggs, your doctor and the embryologist will recommend the day of transfer that offers the best chances of getting pregnant. Transferring embryos at the blastocyst stage
