Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)

Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a type of artificial insemination which is a procedure for treating infertility. Sperm that have been washed and concentrated are placed directly in the uterus around the time the woman’s ovary is expected to releases one or more eggs to be fertilized.

The expected outcome of intrauterine insemination is for the sperm to reach into the fallopian tube and fertilize an egg, thus resulting in a normal pregnancy. Depending on the reasons for infertility, IUI can be coordinated with the normal cycle or with fertility medications.

Why You May Need An IUI?

  • Donor sperm: For women who need to use donor sperm to get pregnant, IUI is most commonly used to achieve pregnancy. This is done in cases when the partner’s sperm is not healthy enough for fertility
  • Unexplained infertility: IUI is often performed as the first treatment for unexplained infertility along with ovulation-inducing medications.
  • Endometriosis-related infertility: For infertility related to endometriosis, using medications to obtain a good-quality egg along with performing IUI is often the first treatment approach.
  • Male factor infertility: Also referred to as sub-fertility. Here, the partner's semen may show below-average sperm concentration, weak movement or motility of sperm or abnormalities in sperm size and shape such as morphology.
  • Cervical factor infertility: The cervix, at the lower end of the uterus, provides the opening between the vagina and uterus. Mucus produced by the cervix around the time of ovulation provides an ideal environment for sperm to travel from the vagina to the fallopian tubes. But, if your cervical mucus is too thick, it may impede the sperm's journey.
  • Ovulatory factor infertility: IUI may also be performed for women who have infertility caused by problems with ovulation, including an absence of ovulation or a reduced number of eggs.
  • Semen allergy: A rare condition wherein a woman could have an allergy to proteins in her partner's semen. Ejaculation into the vagina causes redness, burning and swelling where the semen contacts the skin. A condom can protect you from the symptoms, but it also prevents pregnancy.

Why IUI Is Not Recommended?

  • Women with severe disease of the fallopian tubes
  • Women with a history of pelvic infections
  • Women with moderate to severe endometriosis

 

 

 


 


More About Treatment

IUI, or intrauterine insemination, is a relatively simple fertility treatment. It may be done with or without fertility drugs. The procedure itself involves transferring specially washed semen directly into the uterus via a thin catheter.

Treatment Cycles
The cycle will depend on why the doctor has recommended IUI and on whether the patient is taking fertility drugs.

In this procedure, generally, a catheter, a small, thin tube will be placed in the cervix. There might be some mild cramping, similar to what you might feel during a pap smear.

The specially washed semen will then be transferred into the uterus via the catheter. The catheter is removed, and it is all done.

Patient Stories

  1. After a long endeavour, we gave birth to John, our beloved son. But destiny planned otherwise. He was an unhealthy child. After visiting many doctors, it was concluded that our son needs a BMT. We were scattered and confused. We didn’t have anyone to talk to or guide us. We were clueless. One day, my husband was surfing the net and came across Medtravels. We were confused but we had to take a chance. Hesitantly, we contacted their online chat and immediately after sharing our number an executive got in touch with me. We explained everything in details and also shared the reports on mail. Soon after, we received 5 quotes from the team from 5 different hospitals and with detailed profiles. It helped us develop a confidence and we decided to travel to India. Medtravels also helped us with affordable travel and accommodation plans which helped us to manage our expenses. Our son was treated with great care in the hospital and now he is slowly recovering. Medtravels and their hospital has helped giving our son a new life. We will be forever thankful to them.
