We can say Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a relatively simple fertility treatment. It involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization. IUI is also known by the more commonly used term Artificial Insemination (AI). Both IUI and AI are the same with small difference in procedure. In this type of artificial insemination doctor placed the sperm in the vagina. This was easier but it was not as successful as the current procedure.
The procedure may be done with or without fertility drugs. The procedure itself takes only several minutes, and no anesthesia is involved. Sperms that have been washed and concentrated are placed directly in your uterus around the time ovary releases one or more eggs to be fertilized. The best Infertility Centre in Noida, the procedure is performed under the observation of fertility Specialist Dr. Anushka Madan.
The most common reasons behind the use of IUI are low sperm count or decreased sperm motility. IUI can also help couples who are unable to conceive naturally because of disability, injury, or difficulties such as premature ejaculation. Doctors recommend IUI for women who have Mild Endometriosis. It is also used as the first line of assisted conception treatment for couples with "Unexplained Infertility".
As with most fertility procedures, IUI success is higher for younger women. Here are the chances of pregnancy after one IUI cycle; by the age 35 there are 10-20 % chances of pregnancy. But after age 35-40 only 10 % chances of pregnancy.
