The following are some strategies for assisting infertile couples in having children:
(i) Baby-in-a-tube program: The ova from the wife/donor (female) and the sperms from the husband/donor (male) are collected and induced to form a zygote in the laboratory under simulated conditions. The zygote created is subsequently put into a typical female's fallopian tube.
(ii) Gamete Intra Fallopian Transfer (GIFT): The transfer of an ovum from a donor into the fallopian tube of another female who cannot produce eggs but can offer a fertile environment.
(iii) Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI): A sperm is injected directly into the ovum.
(iv) Artificial insemination (AI): Semen is obtained from the husband or a healthy donor and artificially implanted into the female's vaginal or uterine cavity.Answered by Abhisek | 1 year ago
