Business Bhutan - - Elections 2018 -

The fer­til­ity clinic which opened in Au­gust 2016 helped about 23 cou­ples con­ceive with the help of Ovu­la­tion In­duc­tion (OI) and In­trauter­ine In­sem­i­na­tion (IUI) treat­ments.

Ovu­la­tion In­duc­tion is treat­ing women with drugs to in­crease their chances of pro­duc­ing eggs, while IUI is plac­ing sperm in­side a wo­man’s uterus for fer­til­iza­tion.

Health of­fi­cials re­vealed that this year alone, the clinic made it pos­si­ble for five cou­ples to con­ceive, whereas 18 cou­ples con­ceived last year.

The clinic also sees about five pa­tients a day, and the clinic has re­ceived about more than 300 pa­tients since its open­ing.
