IUI Treatment

IUI – Intrauterine Insemination

All over the world, IUI is one of the most popular forms of assisted conception. This kind of surgical procedure is employed when the male partner has low sperm count; low sperm motility or when sperm motion is impaired. During an IUI, a fertility specialist will place washed, prepared sperm in the uterus of the female patient close to the eggs at the time of ovulation. Certain drugs are also administered to hasten the process of ovulation and increase the success arte of IUI.

How it IUI done?

  • Step 1 : IUI procedure begins with the female patient being administered drugs at the beginning of the menstrual cycle so that the ovaries can be stimulated to develop mature eggs for fertilization.
  • Step 2 : An ultrasound scan is done to locate the egg and inspect it‘s maturity so that the intrauterine insemination can be conducted at the best time. If the female patient is able to ovulate at the right time then it is fine or else gonadotropin is administered to hasten the process.
  • Step 3 : Sperm is inserted into the uterus after 24 hours or 40 hours after administration of gonadotropin injection. If there is a surge in the luteinising hormone, then the male partner is asked to offer a fresh semen sample, out of which the most mobile and best quality sperm is extracted.
  • Step 4 : This sperm is then inserted directly into a uterus near the fallopian tube. It is this fallopian tube from where the egg travels along from an ovary to the uterus. In cases, where there is unexplained fertility, then a larger volume of sperm is inserted into the fallopian tubes which will greatly increase the chances of conception.

 

IUI as a procedure is extremely useful for couples who are unable to have normal sexual intercourse due to spinal injury, diabetes or premature ejaculation. Mild endometriosis in women is one of the conditions when IUI may be quite suitable.
