Intrauterine insemination or IUI is a simple procedure that is used to insert the sperm directly inside the uterus. The procedure assists in meeting healthy sperm directly to the egg. Matrika Medicare with its associates also holds specialization is this procedure and can help easily in resolving the problem of infertility. IUI stands for Intrauterine Insemination and is sometimes called as donor insemination or artificial insemination. IUI mainly works by putting the sperm cells directly into the uterus when the female partner is ovulating thereby helping the sperm get closer to the egg.
This would cut down the time and distance of meeting sperm with egg. The procedure also makes sperm travel less and makes it easier to fertilize the egg. But the process needs a systematic flow and before having the insemination procedure, the female partner is asked to take fertility medicines that would stimulate the ovulation. Under the same procedure, semen is collected from the male partner or it can be a donor as well. This process is called “sperm washing” where a concentrated amount of healthy sperm is collected to get mixed with eggs.
After this process, the doctor inserts the sperm right into the uterus. Now next is pregnancy, which will only happen if the sperm fertilizes the egg, and on the other hand the fertilized egg implants in the lining of the uterus. IUI treatment is very simple and is used as the first step for IVF. It is also less expensive compared to other types of fertility treatments. Besides, it also increases the chances of pregnancy. But the only issue is everyone’s body is different, and there’s no guarantee that IUI will work on everyone in the same manner.
Before doing IUI, the doctor would ask the female partner to take fertility medicines and this will help her make eggs mature and ready to be fertilized. To maximize the chances of pregnancy the doctor will do the insemination procedure during ovulation. He/she can also trigger ovulation and can figure out exactly when the patient is ovulating and when she is ready for the procedure.
The male partner can collect his semen sample at home or the sample can be collected in the doctor’s office also. One can also use a donor sperm which is available in our ART Bank.
