The Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) uses fresh, as opposed to frozen, non-donor eggs or embryos. The egg is harvested from the woman who is trying to become pregnant, fertilized, and then, if the fertilization is successful, transferred to the uterus.

Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) refers to medical procedures that are used to treat infertility in both men and women. These procedures involve the manipulation of eggs, sperm, or embryos outside of the body, with the goal of achieving a successful pregnancy.

Examples of ART procedures include:

  1. In vitro fertilization (IVF): This procedure involves the removal of eggs from the ovaries and fertilizing them with sperm in a laboratory dish. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the uterus.

  2. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI): This procedure involves the injection of a single sperm directly into an egg, rather than relying on the sperm to fertilize the egg on its own.

  3. Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT): This procedure involves the transfer of both eggs and sperm into the fallopian tubes, where fertilization can occur naturally.

  4. Zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT): This procedure involves the transfer of fertilized eggs (zygotes) into the fallopian tubes, rather than the uterus.

  5. Donor egg or sperm: In cases where one or both partners are infertile, donor eggs or sperm can be used in conjunction with ART procedures.

  6. Surrogacy: In cases where a woman is unable to carry a pregnancy to term, a surrogate can be used to carry the pregnancy to term on behalf of the intended parents.
