Fertility treatments can be grouped into three categories:
- Medicines to improve fertility – these are sometimes used alone, but can also be used in addition to assisted conception.
- Surgical treatments – these may be used when a cause of the infertility is found that may be helped by an operation.
- Assisted conception – this includes several techniques such as intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilisation (IVF), gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
Medicines are mainly used to help with ovulation. Ovulation is when the ovary makes and releases an egg (ovum). Women should ovulate about once a month until the menopause. For various reasons, ovulation may not occur at all, or it may occur less often than normal. Ovulation is partly controlled by hormones called gonadotrophins. These are made in a gland just under the brain (the pituitary gland). A gonadotrophin is a hormone that stimulates the activity of the gonads (the ovaries in women and the testes in men). The main gonadotrophins made by the pituitary gland are called follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinising hormone (LH). These pass into the bloodstream and travel to the ovaries.
