    In selecting the infertility management tactics, specialists of the clinic consider so-called "golden standard" - in-vitro fertilization is not offered to infertile couple as the first choice, however, neither the unsuccessful conservative treatment lasts for years! If 2-year conservative and/or surgical treatment does not give a positive result, clinic team starts selection of appropriate method of assisted reproductive technology for the couple (intra-uterine insemination, in-vitro fertilization, donation, surrogacy).
