IUI | Intrauterine Insemination Treatment

What is IUI Treatment ?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that bypasses the cervical area and places sperm directly into the uterus, increasing the chances of fertilization. It is a relatively simple and inexpensive procedure that can be helpful for couples who are struggling to conceive due to a variety of factors, including: Male factor infertility, that includes a low number of sperm and poor sperm motility, effects up to 50% of couples.
Sperm Enhancement:
IUI places washed and concentrated sperm directly into the uterus, improving chances of fertilization.

Cervical Factor:
Helps bypass cervical mucus issues that might impede sperm movement.

Unexplained Infertility:
It’s an initial fertility treatment for couples with unknown causes of infertility.

Mild Male Factor Infertility:
Assists couples where the male partner has low sperm count or motility.
  • Ovulation Monitoring: Tracking the woman’s ovulation cycle using ultrasounds or blood tests.

  • Sperm Preparation: Sperm sample is washed and concentrated to increase its effectiveness.

  • Insemination: The prepared sperm is inserted directly into the uterus through a thin catheter.

  • Rest Period: Woman rests for a short time after the procedure.

  • Pregnancy Test: A pregnancy test is done after a couple of weeks to check for conception.
  • Multiple Pregnancies: Increased chance of having twins or more due to multiple eggs being released.

  • Infection: Slight risk of infection associated with the procedure.

  • Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS): Rarely, fertility medications can cause OHSS, leading to abdominal pain and swelling.

  • Ectopic Pregnancy: Slightly elevated risk of the fertilized egg implanting outside the uterus.

 

The success rates of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) can fluctuate based on several factors, including the couple’s age, the underlying cause of infertility, and the number of IUI cycles administered. On average, the success rate of IUI stands at approximately 20% per cycle. However, it’s important to note that these rates are subject to variation and can be influenced by diverse individual circumstances.
