Overview

IUI is a type of artificial insemination that places millions of healthy sperm directly into a woman’s uterus, while she is ovulating. It is the best, safest, and an effective treatment to treat infertility. The process takes only a few minutes and causes minimal discomfort.

Also, it is a relatively non-invasive and less expensive fertility treatment compared to other procedures.

Why is intrauterine insemination required?

Intrauterine insemination may be required in the following situations:

  • Unexplained infertility
  • Mild male factor infertility
  • Cervical issues
  • Ejaculation dysfunction
  • Endometriosis-related infertility
  • Donor sperm
  • Semen allergy
  • Problems with ovulation

How is IUI done?

The process of intrauterine insemination involves several steps:

1. Ovulation monitoring: Before proceeding with IUI, the woman's menstrual cycle is closely monitored. This may involve tracking the growth of follicles through ultrasounds and measuring hormone levels through blood tests.
In case hormone therapy is involved to stimulate ovulation, your progress will be monitored through ultrasound scans to assess the development of eggs. Once the eggs reach maturity, you will receive an injection to trigger their release.

2. Timing of insemination:  The goal is to perform the insemination as close to the time of ovulation as possible to maximize the chances of fertilization. Insemination can be scheduled for the day of ovulation or sometimes the day before.

3. Semen preparation:  In the laboratory, the semen sample undergoes a process called sperm washing. This involves separating the motile and healthy sperm from the seminal fluid and other impurities. The processed sperm is concentrated into a small volume for insemination.

4. Insemination procedure:  A thin catheter is carefully inserted into your uterus through the cervix. Using this catheter, the high-quality sperm extracted from the semen sample is gently transferred into the uterine cavity.

5. Pregnancy testing:  Approximately two weeks after the procedure, a pregnancy test is performed to determine if conception has occurred.

FAQs

Intrauterine insemination is typically performed around the time of ovulation. The sperm is introduced into the uterus when the ovary releases an egg for fertilization. The timing of ovulation varies among women and is closely monitored during IUI treatment.

IUI is generally not a painful procedure. Some individuals may experience mild discomfort during the process.

Some lifestyle changes are recommended to promote a healthy environment for potential pregnancy. After IUI, it is advisable to avoid strenuous activities, smoking, alcohol consumption, and excessive caffeine intake.

A pregnancy test can be taken approximately two weeks after the IUI treatment.

IUI is often recommended as an initial treatment option before considering more complex methods like in vitro fertilization (IVF). It can be suitable for various scenarios, including:
  • Mild cases of endometriosis
  • Infertility related to the cervix or cervical mucus
  • Male factor infertility, such as low sperm count or motility, erection or ejaculation difficulties, etc.
  • Azoospermia (Using donor sperm)
  • Unexplained infertility

IUI is generally a safe and minimally invasive procedure. Some women may experience mild cramping, similar to menstrual cramps, following insemination. In stimulated IUI cycles, there is a risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (a rare but potentially dangerous complication) and the potential for multiple pregnancies. Close monitoring and appropriate medical guidance help mitigate these risks.
