Introduction

Describe the Treatments Available to help Infertile Couples to have Children. In this essay I am going to write about medical treatments to help couples to have children. I am going to explain each treatment e.g. IVF, AIH, AID etc. Infertility have become much more of a problem in the western world in recent years with as ten per cent of couples in the UK estimated to have fertility problems. These days just as many doctors are engaged in research to find ways of giving children to people who can't have any. Medical technology as provided many solutions. In vitro fertilization (IVF): Infertility is the inability of a couple to become pregnant (regardless of cause) after 1 year of unprotected sexual intercourse -using no birth control methods. With IVF, a method of assisted reproduction, a man's sperm and the woman's egg are combined in a laboratory dish, where fertilization occurs. ...read more.

into the uterus (the womb) to deposit a sperm sample from a donor other than the woman's mate directly into the uterus. The purpose of this procedure is to achieve fertilization and pregnancy. AID is also called heterologous insemination. AID is distinguished from homologous insemination, which is artificial insemination by husband (AIH). Egg donation: The process by which a fertile woman donates her eggs to be used in the treatment of others or for research. Harvesting of a freshly ovulated, unfertilised egg from one female; the egg may be fertilised in vitro (i.e. "test tube fertilisation") and implanted into a surrogate who cannot ovulate. Used in cloning. Embryo donation is a well-established and successful form of assisted conception treatment. It offers hope for select groups of couples who previously thought they could never have children. Embryo donation is usually less expensive and has a fewer medical complications compared to in-vitro fertilization (IVF). ...read more.

Conclusion

However, to the parents concerned, fertility treatments have been regarded as a miracle. In this essay I wrote about how treatments happens e.g. in AIH, a fine catheter (tube) is inserted through the cervix (the natural opening of the uterus) into the uterus (the womb) to deposit a sperm sample from the woman's mate directly into the uterus. The purpose of this procedure is to achieve fertilization and pregnancy. I tried to explain every part of the treatment. I think Surrogacy is wrong whereas I think the test which doesn't involved third party are ok because I think including someone you don't even know is totally wrong. I think egg or embryo donations are also wrong, because I think lives begins from the egg and no one have the right to kill someone. In the Ten Commandments God says "Do Not Kill" which means killing an embryo or egg is also wrong. ?? ?? ?? ?? Bilal Nasir 10DDC R.E Coursework ...read more.
