Artificial Insemination VS InVitro Fertilization
In terms of fertility we find different types of treatments and techniques of assisted reproduction, which can allow men and women with infertility to achieve a pregnancy, thus fulfilling the illusion of having children.
At Celagem all our patients are important and we understand that each case brings with it different fertility problems, so each of the techniques is indicated for different patients. That's why it's necessary to make it clear which treatment is best suited to ensure success.
Artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization are two of the most widely used treatments in the world, which makes them well known today, but at the same time these two terms tend to be confusing or in other cases think they may be the same. Below we will explain each of them.
It is one of the simplest assisted reproduction techniques, so it tends to be, in most cases, a treatment indicated as a first choice. This consists of taking the couple's semen sample to the lab where sperm with the greatest fertilization potential will be selected and then implanted in the woman's uterine cavity, where fertilization naturally occurs the time of Ovulation.
Artificial insemination is indicated for couples whose sperm count or mobility decreases, as well as due to difficulty penetrating sperm into the uterine cavity due to cervical problems or the presence of antibodies against semen, among other factors.
In Vitro Fertilization
It consists of ovarian stimulation, which seeks to obtain a greater number of eggs, which will be extracted by puncture of oocytes, to be fertilized with sperm, either from the couple or a donor through fertilization and embryonic cultivation, finally the the patient's uterus will be deposited in the patient's uterus according to their evolution, to give them the best chance of reaching the pregnancy and to be able to perform a positive test on the date stipulated after the end of treatment.
In vitro fertilization is indicated for patients with more severe infertility problems, such as women with low ovarian reserve, clogged fallopian tubes or tubal ligation (pomeroy), moderate or severe male factor, and in failed cases of insemination of insemination Artificial.
In vitro fertilization, in turn, is a more complex assisted reproductive technique, which aims to obtain one or more optimal quality embryos that can be transferred to the patient's uterus to allow the occurrence of pregnancy.
