In case of a couple, where the male is having a very low sperm count, which technique will be suitable for fertilisation?
(a) Intrauterine Transfer
(b) Gamete intracytoplasmic fallopian transfer
(c) Artificial Insemination
(d) Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection
(c) Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) is a general term referred to the method used to achieve pregnancy by artificial means or partial artificial means and is primarily used in infertility treatment. Artificial insemination is a type of ARTs.
In artificial insemination, the semen is collected either from husband or a healthy donor and then artificially introduced into the vagina or into the uterus of the female. It is commonly used in cases, where male partners are unable to inseminate the female due to very low sperm counts in the ejaculate.
