Infertility remains a major gynaecological problem globally, developing and developed countries alike. It threatens the basic foundation of families and the society generally. Most developing countries including Nigeria which sits on the infertility belt of Africa place good premium on procreation. Over the years traditional medical management of infertility has met with some success but at the same time fraught with failures and disappointments. The advent of assisted reproductive technology appears to have provided a ray of hope to many such couples.
