Clinic details: Diverse treatments are offered at the Country Durham Assisted Conception Unit, including a common first step along the route of assisted conception, artificial insemination. Artificial insemination is a great choice of treatment where the causes of infertility are not known and where male factor infertility, whether because of impotence or because of ejaculatory issues, is the source of the problem. Other treatment options are, of course, provided, including tubal testing and surgery. A common cause of infertility amongst women is damage to the fallopian tubes because of pelvic infections or through the use of a contraceptive IUD, in these instances assessing the health of the fallopian tubes can be extremely useful as if fallopian damage is the cause of your infertility then tubal surgeries can provide a simple and straightforward solution.
