The infertility treatment plan would depend upon the cause of the problem and also depends on whether the problem is from the woman's side, the man's side, both sides, or remains unexplained. The treatment ranges from fertility drugs, Intrauterine Insemination, Assisted reproductive technologies e.g. IVF, GIFT and ZIFT to surgical intervention for correction of any anatomical abnormality.
