Assisted reproduction treatments


Assisted reproduction techniques are targeted at couples with fertility problems (male infertility, female infertility or both) as well as single women looking to have children:

  • Artificial insemination involves inserting a sample of sperm from an anonymous donor or from the male partner into the woman’s uterus.
  • In vitro fertilisation is the laboratory-based union between the egg and the sperm -in vitro treatment- to obtain fertilised embryos and transfer them to the uterus.
  • Egg donation is the process whereby a woman with fertility problems receives donated eggs to achieve her wish to become a mother.

Do you want to preserve your fertility?


At IVI we offer techniques to preserve fertility, such as the vitrification of eggs targeted at women affected by cancer as well as those women that wish to put off motherhood for a while.

Fertility techniques and testing


There is a series of fertility techniques and tests that make it possible to undergo assisted reproduction successfully.

  • Vitrification of oocytes: a fertility preservation technique.
  • Embryoscope: an incubator that allows real-time viewing of the embryo’s cell division. This technique increases the possibility of falling pregnant as it avoids handling the embryo outside the incubator.
  • Sperm donation: donor sperm used in assisted reproduction treatments such as artificial insemination.
  • ICSI: a technique that allows direct contact between the egg and the sperm, thus facilitating in vitro fertilisation.
  • MACS: a technique that selects the best sperm for assisted reproduction treatments.
  • PGD: pre-implantation genetic diagnosis that allows genetic or chromosome alterations to the embryos to be diagnosed before implantation.
  • NACE AND NACE PLUS: a non-invasive prenatal test to rule out chromosome changes in the foetus.
  • CGT547: a technique that minimises the transfer of genetic diseases to our children.
