Transcription: 
Assisted Reproductive Technologies, or ART, is a term that was coined and used for the last 15 - 20 years and what it means is the techniques that have developed after the advent of in vitro fertilization in the early 1980's. Shortly after that, we began to understand how to process sperm and intrauterine insemination is another method of ART. The ARTs are just the techniques that have evolved in the last 30 years that are the advanced methods of treatment of infertility. They include in vitro fertilization, embryo freezing, intrauterine insemination, crop fertilization of the inseminized eggs; those are the ART procedures that we lump into that ART terminology.
