GCSE RS- Religion and Medical issues (Unit H)
Infertility is when couple/couples fail to conceive even when having regular unprotected sex. As a result an estimated 1 in 7 couples have difficulty conceiving. Many people can't conceive because of medical conditions, there age, its genetic, mental reasons or because the woman has lack of healthy ovaries or because the man has low sperm count.
There are many treatments available. For example, couples can get IVF, GIFT, Surrogacy, AIH, AID or by using donors.
In Vitro Fertilisation treatment (IVF) is when the women's eggs are collected and then are fertilised with her partners' sperm or donated sperm. Gamete Intra- Fallopian Transfer treatment (GIFT) is when eggs and sperm is collected and are tested to find the healthiest ones. The healthiest sperm and eggs are mixed together and are placed in the woman's fallopian tube. Surrogacy is when another woman carries your baby. This woman would be the 'surrogate mother' and it has to be voluntarily. 'Straight surrogacy' is when your partner's sperm is conceived with the surrogates' eggs. This would mean that the surrogate mother will be the biological mother. 'Host surrogacy'
