Infertility
Infertility is defined as the inability to achieve pregnancy after 12 months or more of unprotected sexual intercourse.

Incidence of Infertility
15% to 20% of all couples of ideal age to conceive will experience difficulty achieving a pregnancy. In Canada, 1 in 6 couples are affected by infertility.


Glossary of Abbreviations and Definitions:

ART: Assisted Reproductive Technologies 
Assisted reproductive technology refers to all treatments that involve handling eggs or embryos outside the body and in a specialized lab.

AHT: Assisted Human Reproduction 
Activities used to aid human reproduction. Examples of AHR include taking prescription fertility drugs, in vitro fertilization, and donor insemination.

CRYO: Cryopreservation/Freezing Process 
Cryopreservation is the process of freezing biological material at extreme temperatures; most common -196 °C/-321 °F in liquid nitrogen (N2). At these low temperatures, all biological activity stops, including the biochemical reactions that lead to cell death and DNA degradation. This preservation method in theory makes it possible to store living cells as well as other biological material unchanged for centuries.

D & C: Dilatation and Curettage 
A procedure to remove tissue from inside your uterus. Doctors perform dilation and curettage to diagnose and treat certain uterine conditions or to clear the uterine lining.

DSA: Detailed Sperm Analysis 
Semen analysis, also known as a sperm count test, analyzes the health and viability of a man’s sperm. Semen is the fluid containing sperm (plus other sugar and protein substances) that’s released during male ejaculation. A semen analysis measures three major factors of sperm health:
  • the number of sperm
  • the shape of the sperm
  • the movement of the sperm, also known as “sperm motility”

Embryo 

A human organism during the first 8 weeks (56 days) of its development after fertilization or creation, not including any interruptions such as cryopreservation, and includes (for purpose of the Assisted Human Reproduction Act) any cell derived from such an organism that is used for the purpose of creating a human being.

FET/FBT: Frozen Embryo or Blastocyst Transfer 
A frozen embryo transfer (FET) is a cycle in which the frozen embryos from a previous fresh IVF or donor egg cycle are thawed and then transferred back into the woman's uterus.

We use the term FBT when the embryo is cryopreserved in the blastocyst stage.

FSH: Follicle Stimulating Hormone
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a gonadotropin, a glycoprotein polypeptide hormone. FSH is synthesized and secreted by the gonadotropic cells of the anterior pituitary gland, and regulates the development, growth, pubertal maturation, and reproductive processes of the body.

HSG: Hysterosalpingography 
Hysterosalpingography (HSG) is a radiologic procedure to investigate the shape of the uterine cavity and the shape and patency of the fallopian tubes. It entails the injection of a radio-opaque material into the cervical canal and usually fluoroscopy with image intensification.

ICSI: Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection
An IVF treatment that involves injecting a single sperm into an egg with a microscopic needle. This treatment is used, for example, when the male partner has few and/or poor quality sperm.

IVF: In Vitro Fertilization
An assisted human reproduction technique in which fertilization happens outside a woman's body. IVF is a process where a woman's oocytes are exposed directly to sperm in a laboratory dish so that the sperm are more likely to be able to fertilize the oocytes.

IUI: Intrauterine Insemination 
Procedure in which sperm are injected directly into a woman's uterus through the vagina.

AH: Assisted Hatching 
Laser-assisted hatching is a process whereby a low energy laser beam is used to thin a part of the Zona Pellucida (the outermost membrane that surrounds an embryo). The purpose of assisted hatching is to allow the embryo to hatch more easily from its “shell.” Hatching must occur in all pregnancies, whether naturally occurring or as a result of in-vitro fertilization to enable embryos to implant in the lining of the uterus.

LH: Luteinizing Hormone 
Luteinizing hormone is a hormone produced by gonadotropic cells in the anterior pituitary gland. In females, an acute rise of LH triggers ovulation and development of the corpus luteum.

Oocyte 
An immature egg cell, found in the ovaries. An ovum is a mature oocyte, and is usually released during a woman's monthly ovulation cycle. Although the oocyte and the ovum are at different stages of development, the two terms are often used in place of one another.
