In vitro fertilisation's development and advancement completely revolutionised the field of fertility treatment and what could be achieved if a couple had been diagnosed with infertility. The procedure is conceptually simple, and basically involves taking the genetic material that would normally interact during sexual intercourse from a man and woman, namely the sperm and eggs respectively, and introducing these in a glass dish designed to give them the best chance of meeting and fertilising one another. Human fertility is extremely complex, and in many cases the cause of infertility disrupts the chances of a successful interaction between sperm and egg, called fertilisation, and what IVF offers is a simple method to introduce these elements in such a manner that fertilisation is much more likely to occur. Once fertilisation happens within an IVF dish, the next stage is to allow the embryos to grow until they are fit for implantation, which means placement into a womb where hopefully that embryo will grow as per usual. The chances of success are increasing as the technologies around IVF are constantly improving and CARE is right at the forefront of these advancements. One of these technological advances is in the form of ICSI, also offered at CARE Sheffield. This procedure, also known by its fuller name, intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection, makes IVF possible for men whose sperm are, by themselves, unable to fertilise an egg. ICSI also increases the chances of a successful fertilisation dramatically, and it does all this by injecting a sperm cell into an egg cell directly. IVF and ICSI are both provided by CARE Sheffield at excellent standards, and for under 35s their reported success rates are above the national average. Other treatments are also available onsite, and these include insemination (from donors if necessary) and storage of embryos, eggs, and sperm.

The Centre for Reproductive Medicine and Fertility's Sheffield Assisted Conception Unit can be found near the centre of Sheffield, which in turn is within easy access of much of the North East with regular trains and busses coming in from across the region. Assisted reproduction technologies are on offer to excellent standards, ensuring that should you choose to come to this ACU for treatment you will find yourself in able hands. Both private and NHS patients have access to the facility's insemination treatments, often a first step down the route of assisted conception. Insemination is relatively cost effective and can offer a great deal of success, particularly where the cause of infertility is either unknown or related to male impotence or premature or retrograde ejaculation. Insemination can achieve good results for many couples, but where it doesn't this ACU offers alternatives in the form of IVF and ICSI, two treatments that have proven to be remarkably effective in providing patients who have been struggling to conceive by natural and artificial means without success. IVF and ICSI both involve fertilising an egg in a laboratory setting to achieve conception and, after implantation, a live birth. Where IVF and ICSI differ is that while in IVF sperm and egg cells are introduced by placing the two on a petri dish (a specialist glass container), ICSI requires a single sperm cell to be directly injected into an egg cell.
