Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) at Shivdikar Human Reproduction & Fertility Centre

Intrauterine insemination is the deposition of washed and capacitated sperm into a woman’s uterus. The prepared sperm is placed near the top of the uterine cavity using a fine tube (catheter) passed through the cervix.
Ovarian stimulation (using tablets and/or injections) results in the development of more eggs than in a natural cycle thereby increasing the chances of pregnancy. However this will also increase the chances of a multiple pregnancy. Hence monitoring by means of regular ultrasound scans is required. We regularly perform one insemination if necessary then two inseminations for the same cycle (at no extra cost).
The success rate of IUI is directly related to a woman’s age. Hence the success rates are highest in younger women. Also, success rate depends upon cause of infertility.
This technique is recommended when infertility is:
1) Unexplained
2) Secondary to a male factor, cervical factor, mild tubal factor
3) Caused by endometriosis but tubal patency (opening) is established.
We monitor the female partner's follicular phase through hormonal testing and ultrasounds, which assists in adjusting medication scheduling the insemination to coincide with ovulation. The insemination procedure involves placing a fraction of motile sperms into the uterine cavity via a catheter, with chances of success maximized by ovulation induction. Progesterone supplement, may also be administered during the patient's luteal phase.
