IUI involves directly inserting specially washed sperm into a womans womb at the most fertile point in the cycle. Doctors use hormone blood tests and monitoring scans to keep track of the cycle and pinpoint the time at which ovulation occurs, then they introduce the sperm into the uterus in a simple non-invasive theater procedure. The treatment can occur during the natural cycle or, if required, a womans ovulation can be stimulated with an injection of human Chronic Gonadatrophin (HCG) to induce the release of eggs.
Why Do You Need To Undergo This Package?
UI is a good option for those that have good fertility, a good ovarian reserve and have clear fallopian tubes. Hence, it is often most used by same-sex couples and single women, who need only donor sperm to conceive. It is important to note that IUI does not have high success rates compared to IVF, so it may not be the best option for many patients. Your individual situation will need to be assessed so that we can ascertain whether IUI is a good option for you..
What Are The Preparation Required?
No preparation required. You will be requested to collect urine and sperm for test and give in your consulting hospital. .
Procedure For This Package
1. The first step in IUI treatment is to come into the clinic for an assessment scan and consultation. At this point the doctor will perform an internal scan. You (and your partner if applicable) will then have a 30 minute consultation where the doctor will go through your medical history and devise a personalised treatment plan. 2. You will then come in for a number of scans following the start of your period. These will be used to monitor the growth of the follicles and track ovulation. 3. Once the time is right to perform the IUI, the sperm sample will be washed and prepared before the procedure. 4. The IUI procedure involves introducing the sperm to the uterus through a thin catheter at the correct time of the cycle when the egg is being released. .
