When is the body considered infertile?
Husband and wife who have regular sexual intercourse (about 2-3 times a week) for 1 year without contraception but no pregnancy as a result. They can be considered infertile.
The cause may be due to abnormalities in either man or woman.

Men often think that having children is natural without having much problems. But in fact, infertility in men is a common condition. Up to 40% of spouses are due to male infertility.
How to treat?
There are many ways to treat infertility, such as easy methods like determining the day of ovulation to have intercourse, injecting selected sperm, as well as GIFT (Gamete intrafallopian tube), ICSI treatments, IVF, and Blastocyst Culture method, a method which cultures the embryo outside the body for 5 days until the embryo is fully grown up to the embedded stage, and then move the embryo back to the uterus to become pregnant.
Choosing which treatment method to take solely depends on the problems of each spouse, for example, if the fallopian tube is clogged then treatment by means of injection or GIFT is not possible. The treatment that the spouse must undergo is either IVF or Blastocyst Culture.
How successful are the IVF opportunities?
The chances of success are different in each patient. Depending on factors such as the age of the woman, causes of infertility, and treatment methods.

Depending on factors such as the age of the woman, causes of infertility, and methods of treatment such as if the woman is already old Stimulating eggs is harder than younger women. Or if very little sperm then helps to fertilization with the Taxi The chance of success will be higher.
If a woman is already old and not married Can we keep freezing egg cells?
Currently, we can freeze egg cells, sperm, and larvae, which can be stored for up to ten years. Egg freezing can be done by stimulating the both ovaries to produce a large number of egg cells. Then, drilled and sucked out the egg cells for freezing. When spouses wish to have children, the eggs are to be melted and fertilized with the sperm. When the egg turns into an embryo, it is then moved back into the uterus until it is conceivable. Likewise for patients with infertility and have many embryos. Sometimes, only 1-2 embryos can be moved into the uterus. The remaining embryos can be frozen and stored. If the woman is pregnant and gave birth, if they want to have children again, the embryos can dissolved and the process repeated.

The expertise of the embryo breeder because there are detailed procedures when it comes to looking after the embryo require advanced expertise
Opportunities for embedding of embryos that move back into the uterus

Who is IVF suitable for?
IVF is suitable for infertility due to the following reasons:
- Women who have blocked fallopian tubes or have already removed their fallopian tubes. Which means that the egg and sperm cells will not be able to meet for fertilization.
- Men with weak or little sperm count.
- Patients who have been trying to have children for more than 3 years without knowing the reason for not being able to have children.
- Patients who received artificial insemination by injecting sperm into the uterus many times but result in failure.
Practice after moving the embryo back into the uterus
After moving the embryo back into the uterus, the doctor will recommend the patient to rest for about 12-24 hours without any exercise or hard work. And sex is prohibited for a while. More importantly, the patient should not intake any drugs asides from what the doctor had prescribed, as some drugs may interfere with embryo implantation. In addition, the patients should only consume food that are useful to the body, and reduce stressfulness to maintain calmness and comfort.
