What is the difference between IVF and Insemination? What is IVF? IVF is also known as In-Vitro Fertilization. It is a process where eggs from a women’s uterus are removed through a small surgery and then combined with the male partner’s sperm. Here it is fertilized in a culture dish in a laboratory and allowed to grow further. That is, fertilization takes place outside the body. The process mainly involves observing and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova from the women’s ovaries and ensuring sperms fertilize them in a culture dish in a lab. It is used to treat infertility, including advanced maternal age or blocked or damaged fallopian tubes or many other causes. What is Insemination? IUI is Intrauterine Insemination and in other terms called insemination, alternative insemination or artificial insemination. In this process, the doctor slides a thin, pliable tube through a woman’s cervix into her uterus. Through this tube, processed sperm is injected into the uterus directly by a small syringe. Pregnancy takes place when sperm fertilizes an egg and the egg that fertilized implants in the lining of the uterus. The key difference between the two is that in IUI fertilization takes place internally that is sperm is placed directly into the women’s uterus by injecting into it. And in IVF, the fertilization takes place externally, that is outside the body/uterus in a lab. IUI is less expensive than IVF and minimally invasive. But IVF has a higher success rate and is more reliable when compared to IUI. Both have their share of pros and cons. So, depending upon your health condition, the doctor will suggest the best possible treatment for you and you can then decide.
