What is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), also known as artificial insemination, is a fertility treatment procedure designed to increase the chances of conception. During IUI, carefully prepared sperm is introduced directly into the uterus, bypassing the cervix and facilitating the journey of sperm to meet the egg for fertilisation.

Why Choose Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

  • Increased Sperm Placement: By placing the sperm directly into the uterus, IUI bypasses the cervix and provides a higher concentration of sperm closer to the fallopian tubes. This can improve the chances of sperm reaching the egg for fertilisation.
  • Timing Optimization: IUI is performed during the woman’s fertile window, which is determined based on ovulation prediction. By coordinating the timing of insemination with ovulation, the chances of successful fertilisation are maximised.
  • Minimal Invasive Procedure: IUI is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require anaesthesia. It involves a simple and relatively painless process, making it more comfortable for patients compared to more invasive fertility treatments.

The Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) Procedure

  1. Ovulation Monitoring: The woman’s menstrual cycle is closely monitored to determine the timing of ovulation. This may involve tracking hormone levels, ultrasound examinations, or ovulation predictor kits.
  2. Semen Sample Collection and Preparation: On the day of the procedure, the male partner or a sperm donor provides a semen sample. The sample is then processed in the laboratory to isolate the motile and healthy sperm.
  3. Insemination Procedure: The prepared sperm sample is inserted into the woman’s uterus using a thin, flexible catheter. The procedure is typically painless and does not require anaesthesia.
  4. Post-IUI Care and Pregnancy Test: Following the insemination, the woman may be advised to rest for a short period before resuming normal activities. A pregnancy test is usually performed around two weeks after the procedure to determine if pregnancy has been achieved.
