Two of the most widely used fertility treatments are, ICSI and IUI:
– Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)
The final method of fertility treatment is considered by many to be the least invasive. In IUI natural fertilization is given a helping hand by injecting sperm directly into the woman. This is typically used when there are problems with sperm. If you want to get more information about fertility treatment then you can click over here.

The process involves the man producing a fresh sample, (sometimes as little as an hour before the treatment) this is then washed, prepared and then injected into the woman. Treatment will take place close to ovulation to assist the fertilization of an embryo within the body.
– Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
ICSI is similar to IVF in a number of ways, for example, it is also wholly performed in the laboratory, although predominantly the process is used to treat male infertility problems rather than females.
In contrast to IVF where the sperm and the egg are left to fertilize naturally, the sperm is inserted directly into the egg in order to assist the fertilization process. The man's sperm sample is provided fresh, typically on the same day as the treatment and is washed and prepared before the injection begins. Once again, the embryos are left to fertilize before being injected back into the woman.
