IVF4family is an IVF only clinic. The procedures available are:
What is IVF?
IVF (also known as in vitro fertilisation) where the fertilisation of an egg occurs outside the body.
What is ICSI?
ICSI (also known as intracytoplasmic sperm injection or microinjection) is the process by which the scientist injects sperm into the egg.
ICSI was developed in 1992 and therefore many of the children are still quite young. Some recent studies have suggested there may be a slightly higher risk of a birth defect after ICSI. It is uncertain whether this is related to the procedure or to whether the population of people requiring ICSI are at increased risk of having a baby with a birth defect.
IVF4family has a policy that ICSI should only be used where necessary and with the full understanding and consent of the couple.
What is FET?
FET (also known as Frozen Embryo Transfer) is when a frozen embryo is thawed/warmed and then transferred to the uterus.
