Both are treatments offered for infertility. Intra-uterine insemination (IUI) uses milder ovarian stimulation medication to create a smaller number of eggs in your ovaries. For the fertilisation process, sperm is introduced directly into your womb via a thin catheter. The sperm will then have to find the egg and fertilise it for pregnancy to happen.
In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) utilises oral or injectable fertility medication for ovarian stimulation, with the aim of collecting more eggs, which are then fertilised with your partner’s sperm in our laboratory. One of these successfully fertilised eggs, now called an embryo, is then transferred into your womb for implantation and pregnancy to occur. IVF offers significantly higher pregnancy success rates.
