Treatment of infertility is one of Ferring's key areas of expertise.

Ferring has been helping couples to conceive for more than a decade with a portfolio of high quality products that work in the same way as the body's natural hormones. By correcting hormonal imbalances and stimulating ovulation, these products help to achieve a high pregnancy success rate.

Ferring is firmly committed to progress in the field of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).

ART is a general term covering a range of advanced procedures, including micro-manipulation of sperm, to aid fertilisation and implantation. The procedures all have one thing in common: they require the collection of multiple mature eggs (oocytes), which is achieved by hormonal stimulation of the ovaries.

 The main ART procedures include:

  • in-vitro fertilisation (IVF)
  • intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
  • gamete intrafallopian tube transfer (GIFT)
  • zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT)
  • embryo and blastocyst transfer

Up to a quarter of all couples may experience problems in conceiving a child, a figure that appears to be rising partly due to the trend to delay pregnancy until an older age. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there are about 60 to 80 million cases of infertility around the world.
