IVF treatment is a boon to the medical science. Fertility treatment can reach every door now. It is so quick that implantation takes place between 1 and 5 days and you can take pregnancy within 10 days from the day of embryo transfer!

With the IUI treatment, good quality sperm is deposited close to the egg which increases the chances of the sperm reaching and fertilizing the egg. I must say IUI is really effective and has been blessing many of the couples with its best results.
