Intra Uterine Insemination

Intra Uterine Insemination

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization. Before starting the IUI treatment, it is necessary to undergo a TUBAL PATENCY test to ensure whether the fallopian tubes are wide and open. It is a less invasive and less expensive option compared to in vitro fertilization

Couples who may benefit from IUI

IUI is not recommended for the following patients:

How does IUI work?

Before intrauterine insemination, ovulation-stimulating medications may be used, in which case careful monitoring will be necessary to determine when the eggs are mature. The IUI procedure will then be performed around the time of ovulation, typically about 24-36 hours after the surge in LH hormone that indicates ovulation will occur soon.
A semen sample will be washed by the lab to separate the semen from the seminal fluid. A catheter will then be used to insert the sperm directly into the uterus. This process maximizes the number of sperm cells that are placed in the uterus, thus increasing the possibility of conception.
The IUI procedure takes only a few minutes and involves minimal discomfort. Pregnancy is confirmed after 15 days post procedure.

What are the risks of IUI?

The chance of having multiple pregnancies is increased if fertility medication is taken when having IUI. . It must be noted that IUI treatment must only be taken under the supervision of extremely skilled doctors in with state-of-the-art equipment to avoid any risk associated with IUI.

How successful is IUI?

The success of IUI depends on several factors. If a couple has the IUI procedure performed each month, success rates may reach as high as 15-20% per cycle depending on variables such as female age, the cause for infertility, and whether fertility drugs were used, among other variables.
While IUI is a less invasive and less expensive option, pregnancy rates from IUI are lower than those from IVF
