If male factor infertility problems are supposed before IUI, your partner will require a full male fertility evaluation, with a sperm analysis (SA). In this evaluation, doctor will check your partner’s semen for sperm count & motility. If he has low sperm count, the specialist may ask him to give some semen samples that can be used in the IUI procedure. The purpose of IUI is to improve the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and then increase the chance of fertilization. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that contains inserting sperm inside a woman’s uterus to help fertilization. IUI mostly gives couples that are incapable to conceive children direct help to do so. Intra uterine insemination is one of the great treatment options that you can select to encourage the probability of pregnancy.
IUI can be done in coordination with a woman’s natural ovulation cycle or in combination with ovarian stimulation using hormones to produce more than one mature egg per cycle. These hormones are similar to the ones used in IVF. IUI is a well-known process used worldwide. It brings very respectable benefits to the patient, although its success rate is high.
IUI is completed when couples use sperm from a man who is not the woman’s partner to have a baby. This is called donor insemination (DI). DI can also be used if the man has certain genetic diseases that he does not want to pass on to his children.
