what is Intrauterine insemination (IUI)?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure in which processed sperm are directly placed into the female partner’s uterus at the time of ovulation. The duration of the whole process is quite brief and it is almost entirely painless. It can be performed with the male partner’s sperm as well as a donor’s sperm.

Why Opt for Intrauterine Insemination ?

Intrauterine insemination is the very first line of treatment, a relatively economical option, and does not entail much pain. Couples can opt for intrauterine insemination in the following cases:

IUI Process

Step 1Initial Consultation

Both the male and female partners undergo a medical examination and tests for diagnosis and a preconception check-up. They also meet with an embryologist. The semen of the male partner is tested and analysed for different parameters, including the quality, quantity and movement of sperm.

Step 2Monitoring of Follicles

The female partner takes small doses of fertility drugs. Thereafter, a specialist monitors the development of the follicles in the ovary using ultrasound. Based on the growth of the follicles, the patient is administered an hCG injection (trigger) for ovulation.
