Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)

IUI is a technique in which sturdy sperm are sifted out from flaccid ones and later the washed sperm are placed into women’s uterus during the time of ovulation. Before the IUI treatment commences, it is mandatory to undergo a Patency Health Test to ascertain whether the fallopian tubes are robust and open.

This method is particularly beneficial for the couples whose infertility problem is unexplained and ambiguous. This technique is also used when men can’t ejaculate in their partners’ vagina due to a raft of reasons ranging from psychological issues, impotence, vaginismus or anatomic problems.

IUI Process

The IUI process includes the following five steps:
   1. Semen analysis
   2. Monitoring of female ovulation
   3. Obtaining the sperm sample
   4. Washing and preparing the sperm sample
   5. Injection of the prepared sample into the uterus

IUI Success Rates
Intrauterine insemination has fairly good success rates. With IUI, the chance of conceiving is especially improved if you or your partner have:

  • Unexplained infertility
  • Low sperm count or other male factor infertility problems
  • Female cervical mucus problems

For women over 35, IUI is helpful to get pregnant, especially when combined with ovulation-boosting fertility drugs. Intrauterine insemination also helps men that have undergone varicocele treatment.
