Assisted reproductive technology

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is a general term referring to methods used to achieve pregnancy by artificial or partially artificial means. It is reproductive technology used primarily in infertility treatments. Some forms of ART are also used in fertile couples for genetic reasons.

The term also includes any reproductive technique involving a third party e.g a sperm donor. There is yet no strict definition of the term.
