Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a sort of artificial insemination which is a method for treating infertility. Sperms that have been washed and concentrated are placed specifically in woman’s uterus near the time her ovary discharges one or more eggs to be fertilized. Older types of artificial insemination placed the sperm in the vagina. While this was simpler, it was not as successful as the current procedure. The hoped-for outcome of intrauterine insemination is for the sperm to swim into the fallopian tube and fertilize a waiting egg, resulting in a normal pregnancy. Depending on the reasons for infertility, IUI can be coordinated with your normal cycle or with fertility medications

Is IUI for me?

IUI can help you conceive if your partner has a low sperm count or poor sperm motility. (Poor motility basically means that sperm has a hard time coming to an egg).IUI additionally helps if you're taking medications to ovulate or produce extra eggs and insemination is timed to support your chance of pregnancy.

Other fertility problems treatable with IUI include:

  • Unexplained infertility

  • Cervical scarring or cervical mucus abnormalities

  • Severe pain during sex

  • Problems with ejaculation or developing an erection

  • Sexually transmitted disease, such as HIV or hepatitis (in either partner)

  • semen allergy

IUI can likewise help when a woman utilizes donor sperm to conceive a child, or when a man who had his sperm solidified before cancer treatment is prepared to have a child.

What’s the treatment of IUI?

IUI requires ovulation, no less than one open fallopian tube, and a semen test with healthy sperm. Each IUI treatment is referred to as a "cycle" which is generally the time from the first day of your period to ovulation and insemination and after that a pregnancy test two weeks later

The timetable for IUI treatment normally like this:

  • Egg production.The ovaries produce eggs for fertilization in a couple of ways. Your doctor may recommend an "unstimulated," or natural, IUI cycle, meaning no fertility drugs are used. Or a doctor may give you fertility at the beginning of your period to stimulate the ovaries to produce several mature eggs.

  • Tracking the eggs An ovulation detection key can help you pinpoint ovulation, which is necessary for timing insemination. When an egg bursts from its follicle, the kit shows a telltale surge in luteinizing hormone, and insemination usually happens the next day. Your doctor can also figure out when ovulation occurs by doing an ultrasound.

  • Washing the sperm. Once you ovulate, it's time for your partner to produce a sperm sample, which is then "washed." This process concentrates the hardiest sperm into a small amount of fluid.

  • Your doctor uses a thin, long tube (a catheter) to put the concentrated sperm directly into the uterus through the cervix. The procedure is usually painless, but some women feel mild cramping.

  • Testing for pregnancy.

    A pregnancy test is done about two weeks after insemination.
