Intrauterine Insemination or IUI is one of the most popular types of IVF treatment where the
sperm is directly injected into the uterus of the woman. This fertility treatment is considered to
be one of the best ways to increase the charges of conception.
In the natural conception procedure, the sperm needs to travel from the vagina via the cervix to
the uterus and then the fallopian tubes to fertilize the egg. In the case of Intrauterine
insemination, the sperms are concentrated and placed close to the eggs injected directly into
the uterus so that the sperm can easily swim to the egg. Like all other IVF treatments, this
treatment, too, is aimed at helping couples who are having a tough time conceiving. At Orion
IVF, we provide affordable intrauterine insemination services to increase the chances of
Who should go for IUI? Compared to all other IVF or fertility treatments, IUI is surely one of the most effective and
affordable forms of treatment. This is a non-invasive procedure, which is why it is considered to
be safer. Several couples in India and across the world prefer opting for IUI before going for any
other IVF treatment. IUI doesn't cure other fertility issues but only helps in increasing the
chances of conception.
The IUI may be carried out either through the male sperm or donor sperm. At Orion IVF, we
make sure to test the sperm quality before opting for IUI. Our doctors are readily available to
check the strength before injecting it into the uterus.
Some of the common scenarios under which you may need to undergo IUI include the following • Mild symptoms of endometriosis • Unknown causes of infertility • Weak sperm • Low sperm count • Erectile dysfunction or ejaculation problem • The problem around the cervix or cervical mucus • Same-sex conception • Single woman conception • Any couple wanting to avoid the risk of genetic disease that may be passed on to the child due
to male partner
However, there are certain conditions under which you may not be held valid for carrying out
IUI. These include • Higher risk of endometriosis • Women with blocked or removed fallopian tubes • Women suffering from pelvic issues • Infection around the fallopian tube • Men lacking sperm production capacity
At Orion IVF, we make sure to check your medical history before approving the IUI. As a result,
you can get in touch with our doctors or professionals for a meeting before getting the treatment
IUI Procedure Before starting the IUI Procedure, ovulation-inducing medicines are given to the woman, such
as Clomid or Letrozole. Once the drugs are injected, careful monitoring will be done to
determine the maturity of eggs. During the ovulation cycle, the IUI procedure will be conducted.
After 24-36 hours, there will be a rise in the LH hormone that marks the beginning of ovulation.
Semen sample washing will help to segregate it from the seminal fluid. Our expert doctors will
conduct the semen washing and concentration in a safe environment. Using a catheter, the
semen sample will be inserted into the uterus. This helps the sperm cells to reach the egg
easily, thereby increasing the chances of conception.
IUI is not at all uncomfortable and will be done in a few minutes. Once the procedure is carried
out, our doctors will recommend you to keep a check for the signs and symptoms of pregnancy.
What is the success rate in IUI? The IUI success rate is eventually dependent on a number of factors. Usually, the success rate
is 20% per cycle based on the female's age, cause of infertility, and more. At Orion IVF, we
have delivered high success rates for pregnancy through IUI.
Before proceeding with the treatment, you may schedule a meeting with our doctors to know
more about the procedure.
