Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a simple yet effective assisted conception technique. At our fertility clinic, we understand the importance of comprehensive information and compassionate care as you plan for your journey toward parenthood.

What is IUI?

Intrauterine Insemination, also known as artificial insemination, is one of the most accessible and cost-effective reproductive solutions available. It involves the placement of carefully prepared sperm directly into the uterus, strategically positioned in close proximity to the egg. This procedure typically aligns with the woman’s ovulation cycle, improving the chance of successful fertilization.

How Does IUI Work?

The IUI process starts with collecting a semen sample, either from the male partner, a donor, or a frozen sample. Through careful sperm washing, the doctors isolate a concentrated amount of healthy sperm. This removes other elements and poor quality sperm to improve the chances of success. 

At the same time, the woman is monitored to pinpoint the exact time when ovulation is likely to happen. Tests such as ultrasound examinations or the use of ovulation predictor kits that check luteinizing hormone levels play a role in determining this. In some cases, medicines are prescribed to stimulate ovulation and increase the chances of successful conception.

Once ovulation is detected, our experienced medical team schedules the IUI procedure. A catheter is carefully inserted into the woman’s vagina, cervix, and uterus, delivering the prepared sperm directly into the uterine cavity. Following the procedure, the woman awaits the appropriate time to take a home pregnancy test, typically two weeks post-IUI, with the option of confirming pregnancy via a blood test thereafter.

What are the Benefits of IUI?

IUI offers several key advantages for individuals and couples seeking assisted conception:

  • Affordability: Cost-effective option for assisted conception
  • Safety: Minimally invasive procedure with low risk
  • Precision: Enhanced sperm placement near the egg for increased fertilization potential
  • Versatility: Suitable for various fertility challenges, including unexplained infertility, ovulatory disorders, and male factor infertility

Our Commitment to Success

By choosing First Fertility IVF Clinic for your IUI journey, you gain access to state-of-the-art facilities, highly trained professionals, and a supportive community of individuals striving for the same goal—to build happy, healthy families.

The reasons behind a couple’s inability to conceive can impact the IUI success rate. In cases of unexplained infertility, the couple will likely have good reproductive health but simply seem unable to conceive. There is a success rate of 7%-10% per cycle with IUI. This increases to about 15%-25% if fertility drugs are used.

Through extensive research, we also discovered that reducing the emotional strains accompanying fertility journeys could boost the likelihood of successful pregnancies. We are dedicated to promoting the holistic wellness of expectant mothers.

Guided by these principles, we strive to perfect every aspect of the IUI procedure, leveraging modern technologies alongside bespoke therapies to maximize success rates for all patients. We aim to deliver imaginative solutions without compromising our empathetic and client-centered approach.

Through meticulously refined techniques and a deep understanding of the complexities surrounding IUI, we ensure that every couple receives the highest level of care and attention.
