Intrauterine Insemination

What is a IUI?

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is an infertility treatment. It is designed to optimize the chances of pregnancy for couples struggling to conceive naturally. It is a painless procedure which does not require the patient to be sedated prior to the treatment.  In the IUI procedure, sperm is prepared to be meticulously placed into the uterus directly. The procedure takes place during the woman’s ovulation phase. IUI promotes fertilization as placing the sperm directly into the uterus enhances the chances of sperm reaching the egg. Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a cost-effective fertility treatment. It is less expensive when compared to advanced fertility treatments such as IVF or ICSI. However, success rates may vary with each case depending on various factors. It is usually recommended as an initial treatment for infertility if the underlying issue is not complex. Moreover, the risk of complications is a lot less in IUI, unlike in advanced fertility treatments. Due to its affordability and accessibility, it is considered as most viable option available to couples facing difficulty in conception

IUI Process & Procedure 

Patient Preparation 

In order to optimize the chances of successful IUI treatment, our fertility experts work closely with patients to provide tailored treatment plans. Generally, the couple undergoes fertility evaluation to identify the underlying issue. A semen analysis is conducted to assess sperm quality. The woman’s ovulation phase is tracked to identify the optimal time for insemination. The couple is also advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Medications may be recommended to enhance follicle development and chances of successful ovulation.

Sperm Collection and Processing

The sperm that is collected from the male partner is processed in a laboratory. Seminal fluid and other impurities from the sperm sample are removed using centrifugation process. Consequently, most viable and motile sperm is obtained.  Sperm preparation has significant impacts upon the overall success of IUI. It ensures that highest quality sperm is inseminated into the uterus, ultimately improving the chances of fertilization. 

Insemination Procedure 

The insemination procedure involves the placement of processed and concentrated sperm into the uterus. The procedure is carried out using a very thin catheter, which is inserted by a doctor into the uterus through the cervix. The sperm is released into the uterine cavity directly. Insemination allows the sperm to reach the eggs conveniently. The procedure is usually painless, carried out during the ovulation phase of the female partner. 

Post-IUI Care and Follow-up

Patient can continue their daily activities after IUI treatment. However, we advise them to avoid arduous activities which can impact the procedure adversely. Mild bloating, pain, and spotting can take place which is fades with time. But the patient should report to our team in case of severe pain, fever, or heavy bleeding. Additionally, few medications may be recommended to support healthy pregnancy post-IUI. After about two weeks of insemination, a pregnancy test is conducted.

IUI Success Factors 

Optimal Candidates for IUI

Couples unable to conceive naturally after 12 months of trying should look for assisted reproduction options. Ideal candidates for IUI include couples with unexplained infertility, mild male factor infertility, ovulation issues, or those who have failed to conceive with the help of fertility drugs alone.  Intrauterine Insemination is recommended as initial treatment for fertility issues due to its cost effectiveness and minimal invasiveness. It is a simple procedure which can effectively overcome infertility in couples with less complex fertility issues.

Increased Fertility Rates

The success rates of IUI ranges from 50-60% in women below 35 years of age. Several factors, such as age, diagnosis, and treatment approach, can significantly impact the chances of success. With multiple cycles, the chances of IUI treatment’s success increases. However, when insemination is perfectly timed with ovulation, the chance of success can significantly increase. We use advanced techniques to detect the ideal ovulation timing to optimize the chances of sperm fertilizing the egg. 

Multiple IUI Cycles 

Multiple IUI cycles can increase chances of IUI success significantly. Data reveals that IUI success rate increases to over 75% after 12 cycles. However, to optimize chances of success, we adjust treatment plans that target potential factors causing failure to achieve success. Staying persistent and patient through the journey can bring fruitful results for couples in their subsequent attempts. We advise our patients to take a break before going for another cycle.
