With more and more women and men experiencing infertility, getting pregnant isnï¿½t always an easy task. Infertility can be frustrating to any relationship, and can lead to emotions such as anger, frustration and sadness.
However it is important to remember that while infertility is a challenge to getting pregnant, it doesn't mean that pregnancy is impossible. Assisted reproductive technologies (or ARTs) have made getting pregnant an achievable goal for many women just like you.
At our Getting Pregnant and Assisted Reproduction section, we provide accurate, up-to-date information on ART treatments, such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) - which can include the process of embryo donation - gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and intrauterine insemination (IUI) and intratubal insemination. For couples who have been experiencing male infertility problems, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is becoming an increasingly viable option. Surgical sperm removal is another assisted reproduction procedure which can help individuals conceive, while sperm donation is an alternative method through which to get pregnant that is becoming increasingly popular.
