How Can IUI Treatment Increase The Chances of Achieving a Successful Pregnancy?

An intrauterine insemination procedure is one of the most popular insemination methods to help infertile couples conceive. In this procedure, sperm is directly inserted into the mother’s uterus by an infertility specialist. Women usually undergo this procedure when they are put on fertility medications for ovarian stimulation. IUI treatment is considered by infertility experts to be one of the most minimally-invasive infertility treatments to improve a woman’s chances of conceiving.

What Is The Process of IUI?

An initial step in the treatment is to collect and wash sperm in a specialized laboratory for sperm concentration and seminal fluid removal. The procedure of collecting sperm usually takes around 1 to 2 hours. In the months preceding a woman’s ovulation, fertility specialists perform IUI treatment. Through the cervix, a catheter inserts the washed sperm into the uterus. IUI treatment is less painful and takes just a few minutes compared to other artificial insemination procedures. For the first day or two, there may be light bleeding for the patient. This procedure usually has no lasting side effects.

For whom does IUI work best?

Intrauterine Insemination is not for everyone, so you need to understand that before undergoing the procedure. Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is suitable for the following candidates:

  • Low sperm count
  • Coital disorders
  • Male factor infertility
  • Unexplained infertility
  • The motility of sperm is decreased
  • Endometriosis patients with mild symptoms
  • Ejaculatory or erection disorders
  • Having problems with cervical mucus or the cervix

What is the success rate of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

IUI treatment success depends on how many cycles a patient wants to undergo. Among the factors that affect the success rate of IUI treatment are:

  • Size of the follicles
  • Health of the endometrial lining
  • Age of the couple
  • Sperm count
  • Infertility duration

The cost of intrauterine insemination:

For each cycle of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), the cost averages between Rs. 15,000 and Rs. 20,000. The high success rates of IUI in India make IUI one of the most efficient and cost-effective fertility treatments. Nevertheless, some other factors affect the cost of intrauterine insemination in India. They are:

  • Female partner’s age
  • Medication that induces fertility
  • The expertise of the doctors
  • Location of the IUI center

What to expect after IUI insemination?

You can continue your day as usual after your IUI. In the three days following IUI, the fertility doctor may prescribe progesterone vaginal inserts. The hormone progesterone assists the body in preparing for and maintaining pregnancy. You may also be asked to return in 7 days to have your progesterone levels measured and in 14 days for your pregnancy blood tests (HCG beta) since implantation takes place 6 to 12 days after ovulation.
