Specialist Care | IMSI | IUI
Primary Care treatments tend to be quite general. For example, there can be a number of different reasons for weight gain, and thus a number of different treatments. The same goes for conditions such as depression, lifestyle, stress and prescription medication. Once we are certain that none of the “Primary Care” treatments are applicable to you, we will start looking at Specialist Care options. These treatments are a lot more specific than the Primary Care treatments, and we will only embark on this journey once we are absolutely sure none of the other procedures are relevant. This will ensure that you don’t waste money on a Specialist Care treatment when a Primary Care treatment was what you really needed. Let’s analyse the Specialist Care options that are available, should you need them.
Intracytoplasmic Morphological Sperm Injection (IMSI)
Intracytoplasmic Morphologically-selected Sperm Injection is a laboratory technique used in IVF treatments. IMSI is a real-time method where sperms are selected before the microinjection takes place. This is done using an inverted microscope that is able to provide a much greater magnifying power (around 6000 times) than those that are normally used in reproductive laboratories. With this microscope, we can see the internal morphology of sperm and discard those with abnormalities. Being able to select sperm without morphological alterations is believed to increase the chances of successful implantation of pre-embryo and decrease the likelihood of miscarriage.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that uses a catheter to place a number of washed sperm directly into the uterus. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization and is a relatively "low-tech" assisted reproductive technology (ART). The IUI procedure is simple and may be performed even if the woman is not receiving medications to improve or increase her egg production. However, many physicians will encourage women to take medications to stimulate the ovaries in order to increase egg production and, hopefully, the chance of achieving pregnancy.
