Also known as artificial insemination, IUI or Intrauterine Insemination involves placing of male sperms directly into the female’s uterus so that conception may take place. A simpler and cost effective alternative to IVF, this treatment options works best for couples where male infertility is an issue, rather than female infertility.

Following are the cases where IUI is to be considered as the most feasible treatment option:

  • There is an issue with the quality and/or quantity of sperms
  • A physical/medical condition makes the male unable to have sexual intercourse
  • Couples with female infertility, in case the sperm is unable to reach the egg due to cervix related problems
  • Unexplained infertility
  • IUI comes up as an option for same sex couples and it is done using donor sperms

IUI Treatment- Gaudium Nigeria

Intrauterine insemination can give effective results for couples where the woman has healthy and unblocked fallopian tubes and the uterus is also in good condition. For this purpose, it becomes essential for the fertility specialist to establish the same with some diagnostic tests. As in case of IVF patients, the woman who has to undergo IUI is also subjected to ovarian stimulation by administration of fertility medication. Following this, she is monitored closely to establish the exact moment of ovulation.

The d-day is decided on the basis of timing of ovulation and the male sperms are extracted on that day. The sample is then washed by an expert embryologist to separate the dead sperms from the healthy ones. The prepared sample is then transferred into the uterus with the help of a catheter which is made to pass through the vagina. The procedure is relatively safe and painless, taking only 10 minutes to be completed. IUI can be done with freshly extracted sperms, frozen ones or donor sperms, depending upon the individualized requirements of the patients.

Success Rate of IUI

IUI is regarded as a safe and inexpensive ART, with a success rate of 15-20% per cycle on an average. At the same time, the risk factor of multiple pregnancies is associated with IUI because there is probability of multiple eggs being fertilized by the sperms during a single IUI cycle.
