Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is one of the fertility treatments which involve the placing of sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The main goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperms that reach the fallopian tubes and increase the chance of fertilization.
IUI provides the sperm with an advantage of giving it a head start. But still, requires a sperm to reach and fertilize the egg on its own. It is a less complicated and less expensive option when compared to in vitro fertilization.
Before IUI, ovulation-stimulating medications are used and careful and continuous monitoring will be done to determine when the eggs are correctly mature. The IUI procedure will then be performed during the time of ovulation, typically about 24-36 hours after the increased levels of LH hormone which indicates that ovulation will occur soon. A catheter will be used to insert the sperm directly into the uterus. This process will maximize the number of sperm cells that are placed in the uterus, thus increasing the possibility of conception. The IUI procedure takes only a few minutes and involves minimal discomfort.
The success of IUI depends on several factors. If a couple has the IUI procedure performed every month, success rates may reach up to about 20% per cycle depending on different aspects such as female age, the reason for infertility and the use of fertility drugs. While IUI is a less complicated and less expensive option, pregnancy rates from IUI are lower than those from IVF.
