What is it?, for whom it is? and what types are there?
Assisted reproduction is the best option to help couples with fertility problems or who cannot conceive pregnancy naturally through a set of medical methods and treatments.
According to the World Health Organization, 2 out of 10 couples of reproductive age have a diagnosis of infertility, in which 50% are of female origin and the other 50% of male origin, or sometimes of mixed origin.
On the other hand, we find another group of people who also require these techniques to become parents, such as homosexual couples and single men and women.
Today there are various fertility treatments such as artificial insemination (AI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF)
Our assisted reproduction professionals (gynecologists and embryologists) may intervene to a greater or lesser extent in the functioning of the reproductive system, depending on the reason and cause of infertility.
Previously the success rate of fertility treatments were not that great. However, specialized professionals in this field have been trained, which has allowed the improvement of these techniques.
Assisted reproduction and natural pregnancy
There are no great differences between an assisted reproduction pregnancy and a natural one, once the embryo transfer is carried out, the development of the baby will be totally the same.
These being the most used and which in turn can be supported in processes such as gamete donation, preimplantation genetic diagnosis, among others.
