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.

Ivf treatment is a boon to 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!

My sister had an IVF treatment and she is enjoying her motherhood. IVF has a high success rate and can even go up to 40%. This may not seem like wow, but it is very high because naturally the percent lies between 15-25% in general. This is such a gift to all those who fail to conceive.
