Bristol is an extremely convenient location for healthcare centres because of its position. Easily accessed from the South East, nearby Wales, South Gloucestershire, and many other parts of the country, Bristol is an ideal choice for the Bristol Centre for Reproductive Medicine in terms of its geography. The BCRB makes full use of this fact by offering a long list of different treatment options to entice patients near and far, offering them a solution to their fertility issues as and when necessary. The first assisted conception technique tried by many centres and couples is artificial insemination, which is offered in its most successful form as IUI (intrauterine insemination) at the BCRB. IUI involves placing a sperm sample within a woman's uterus, more commonly known as the womb, where it has the best chance of reaching and fertilising an egg. In some cases insemination is a plausible treatment option, but a male partner's sperm is either unavailable or unsuitable, and in these cases donor sperm as offered by the BCRB can be provided to achieve conception and pregnancy. For the cases where insemination and other milder treatments have failed to achieve pregnancy or a live birth, IVF and ICSI are excellent options. IVF stands for in vitro fertilisation, and the procedure essentially involves taking an egg and some sperm and giving them a chance to fertilise one another and form an embryo in a laboratory setting where they will be unimpeded. ICSI, or intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection), relies on the same principle, but rather than introducing a number of sperm cells to an egg cell, a single sperm cell is injected directly into an egg cell, dramatically increasing the chances of fertilisation and pregnancy. In 2009 the BCRB conducted 479 IVF treatment cycles and 628 ICSI cycles, and successfully achieved live births in line with the national average.
