What is ART Programme?
The Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Programme comprises medical techniques to assist women to conceive. Types of ART Programme includes In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and other ART procedures. In ART, a woman’s eggs are removed from her ovaries by a doctor and combined with sperm through laboratory methods where one or more eggs are fertilized and up to 3 embryos will transferred to the woman’s uterus. Excess embryos will be cryopreserved for further use.

Reasons for Seeking Infertility Treatment:
  • Damaged or blocked fallopian tubes which prevent the sperm from reaching the egg.
  • Suboptimal sperm quantity or quality which reduces the chances for fertilization.
  • Presence of antisperm antibodies in sperm.
  • Anovulation (failure of the ovary to release eggs).
  • Unexplained in fertility.
