INTRAUTERINE INSEMINATION

IUI

What is IUI ?

IUI is a type of fertility treatment where sperm is moved past the cervix and placed directly into the uterus during ovulation to initiate pregnancy. It is a minimally invasive and relatively painless procedure that resembles a natural conception.

Ovulation can be medically induced or result from your natural menstrual cycle. In either case, however, there are time constraints on the ovulation period, so IUI must be carefully planned to maximize success.

IUI can be a great option for :

  • Same-sex female couples
  • Women looking to start a family on their own
  • Couples under 35 who tried to get pregnant for at least one year
  • Couples requiring a semen donor
  • Couples with mild male infertility
  • Women struggling to conceive due to endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), cervix issues, rare or absent ovulation, or semen allergy

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ

How big of a sperm sample is needed for IUI?
Normally, a total count of at least 5 million motile sperm cells is an adequate sample for IUI.
One ejaculation generally contains between 40 million and 600 million cells, but not all of them can be used for insemination. Many cells will be immobile or have low motility; only a small percentage of them will be capable of fertilizing an egg. (The amount of usable sperm per ejaculation is connected to the male’s health and age.)
How do we prepare semen for intrauterine insemination?
Once the semen sample is obtained, it is processed in a laboratory to eliminate everything that can prevent the healthy sperm from fertilizing the egg: immobile or low-motility cells, mucus, debris, bacteria, and other unwanted elements. Refining semen in this way increases the chances of getting pregnant. This semen is then placed directly into the uterus, bypassing the cervix, when a patient starts ovulating.
How much does intrauterine insemination cost?

IUI is a less costly procedure in comparison to other fertility treatments, which makes it a popular option among patients. For more detailed information on costs and financing, please contact us directly.

Who are the best candidates for IUI?
IUI is a great family-building opportunity for a wide range of couples and individuals seeking assistance with reproduction. One ideal group of candidates includes females of reproductive age with healthy ovaries and at least one fallopian tube and males with healthy or partially healthy sperm.
