Differences between artificial insemination and in vitro fertilisation
Becoming a mother is the dream of many women. To start a family, either with a partner or as a single parent, and to see their children grow up healthy and happy.
Unfortunately, however, it is not an easy dream to achieve for everyone. There are many factors that can affect both male and female fertility. However, thanks to the development of technology, there are thousands of women every year who manage to get pregnant through one of the various assisted reproduction techniques.
One of the most common doubts is which treatment is best for the individual patient. The most common are artificial insemination and in vitro fertilisation, but what are the criteria for choosing one method or the other?
At Juaneda Fertility we are aware that each case is unique, and that is why we recommend a visit so that we can personalise each treatment as much as possible. We carefully analyse the problem, because no two cases of infertility are the same, and suggest the most suitable method for each one.
Main differences between artificial insemination and in vitro fertilisation
Artificial insemination is a relatively simple technique. At Juaneda Fertility, we trigger the woman's ovulation and introduce the sperm into her uterine cavity. This sperm has previously been treated in the laboratory to improve its quality. This is usually the first option as it is the easiest and cheapest. However, it has the lowest success rates.
On the other hand, we have in vitro fertilisation. In this technique, the woman's eggs are retrieved and fertilised in the laboratory. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the uterus.
Although it is a more complex technique as it requires surgery, it has a higher success rate.
In addition, age is usually one of the determining factors in deciding on one treatment or another.
The chances of pregnancy decrease with each passing year, especially after the age of 35, and drastically after the age of 40. Therefore, in vitro fertilisation is the most commonly chosen option due to its effectiveness.
At Juaneda Fertility, we would like to emphasise one thing: There is no technique that is better or more valid than another. It depends on the individual case and the patient's personal circumstances (type of problem, age, wishes, etc.). This is why a visit to Juaneda Fertility is so important to find the most appropriate treatment for each patient.
