Fertility Treatments in Argentina

All those methods that are used to bring female (eggs) and male (sperm) gametes closer together by artificial means in order to improve the likelihood of pregnancy are called assisted reproductive technology (ART). These methods are generally used in cases where medical or surgical treatments are not prescribed or have not been successful.

These assisted reproduction technologies originally developed to treat cases of male infertility, such as coital disorders or low sperm motility, assisting the deposit of sperm into the vagina. These methods of vaginal insemination were then pushed into the background by cervical and intrauterine insemination, in order to bring the sperm closer to the egg.
