What is IUI
If you have hostile cervical mucus, minor sperm abnormalities or other male disorders, IUI is sometimes a successful option.
It can also be used when semen has been frozen due to a husband’s absence or before chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
It is more beneficial in women who are not of an advanced maternal age.
Insemination with Donor sperm
It may be recommended when the male partner has problems with sperm.
IUI treatment can be performed in a couple of different ways.
- Natural cycle: This option does not involve any medication and works with the woman’s natural menstrual cycle.
- Ovulation induction: Medications are given to stimulate the ovaries to produce more than 1 egg
The semen sample is processed to concentrate the motile sperm. The final prepared sample is used for insemination where it is gently inserted into the uterine cavity.
