WHAT IS IUI AND HOW IT IS PERFORMED?
The intrauterine insemination method brings more sperm near to fallopian tubes and therefore increases the possibility of oocyte fertilization. Before the sperm is placed into the uterus, it is washed to eliminate non-motile sperm and mucus to increase the chance of pregnancy or prevent the transmission of some diseases like HIV.
It is performed at the time of ovulation. For women who have ovulation disorders, it will be done in conjunction with ovulation induction treatments for women who have.
Before any treatment gets done, doctors examine couples to identify any issue that has made them unable to conceive a child normally and naturally. These tests include sperm quality, motility or mobility, female reproductive system conditions, and organs for the achievement of ovulation. During intrauterine insemination preparation, a physical examination may be done on the woman’s reproductive system. Therefore, certain drugs may be prescribed, like ovulation drugs, such as clomiphene citrate, gonadotropins, and urofollitropin.
