Helping nature in a more natural way could boost fertility for millions
Infertility affects millions of couples globally. Aside from the emotional and physical toll that unsuccessful treatments and failure to conceive can have on couples, fertility treatments can come with a hefty price tag. This economic barrier can make access to treatment challenging for those with fewer financial resources. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is simpler and less costly than in vitro fertilisation (IVF) but the success rates are much lower. The EU-funded EVIE 2.0 project is bringing its patented, FDA-approved IUI, EVIE, to market as an alternative to conventional IUI. Since EVIE more than doubles a patient's chance of success compared to standard IUI for patients under 35, storks could soon be on their way to millions of couples worldwide.
