Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) includes all fertility treatments in which either the eggs or embryos are handled. This primarily includes in vitro fertilization (IVF). Our physicians may suggest ART when less complex and less expensive methods of treatment have failed. However, in certain circumstances, such as advanced age or severe male factor infertility, ART may be recommended as first-line therapy.
UT Health San Antonio now offers INVOcell to our patients who are interested in using vaginal incubation in place of traditional in-vitro fertilization (IVF). The INVOcell procedure utilizes an FDA-cleared Intravaginal Culture (IVC) device. The device is a small capsule which is placed within the woman's body during egg fertilization and embryo development. This procedure has equal success rates when compared to traditional procedures, such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and intra-uterine insemination (IUI).
During your appointment, your fertility expert will discuss the available procedures with you so that the most appropriate option for your individual situation will be used.
