Techniques such as artificial insemination, in vitro fertilisation or egg donation treatments help women become pregnant
Obtaining the union of a sperm and an egg is by no means an easy process, and only one out of every six non-protected sexual relations (in a healthy and supposedly fertile couple) results in a pregnancy. This union is even more difficult nowadays, due to the postponement of motherhood.
In such cases, assisted reproduction can help nature follow its course when it is impossible to achieve this alone. Consolidated techniques such as artificial insemination or in vitro fertilisation often succeed in accomplishing something that seemed impossible: a pregnancy.
