The fertility treatments which involves the placing of sperms inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate easy and sure fertilization is known as IUI (intrauterine insemination). The main aim of IUI is to increase the number of sperms which reach the fallopian tubes and also to increase the chance of fertilization.
IUI provides an added advantage to the sperm by giving it a head start. But the sperm has to reach and fertilize the egg on its own. It is a comparatively less complicated and less expensive option when compared to in vitro fertilization.
- Unexplained infertility
- A severe cervical condition
- Scars on the cervix from the past procedures may hinder the sperms ability to enter the uterus
- Ejaculation dysfunction
Before IUI, a few ovulation stimulating medications are made use of. Later 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 increases the possibility of conception by increasing the number of sperms that are placed in the uterus. The IUI procedure consumes 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.
