IUI Treatment (Intra Uterine Insemination)
The success of IUI depends on various factors like sperm count and morphology, ovulation and timing of IUI and is around 10%. Most pregnancies that happen following IUI treatment generally do so in the first 3 to 6 IUIs. Hence, further trial with IUI when 6 previous treatments have failed is not recommended. However, this decision is left to the discretion of your treating doctor. In IVF/ ICSI the success is more in women who are younger so our advice would be to consider IVF/ ICSi after 3-4 failed IUIs
The cost of the treatment varies from case to case. However, in comparison with the success rate, the treatment cost is nominal and the cost of drugs vary depending on your clinical parameters. The IUI treatment plan and cost will be explained in detail to guarantee transparency.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a simple OPD Treatment.
We would require some basic tests to be done for both you and your wife before IUI can be planned. It is also advisable to do a test for tubal patency for the wife. In the IUI cycle some drugs are given to the wife either oral/ injectable for minimal stimulation of her ovaries. In IUI the husband provides us with a semen sample which is washed and then in a simple office procedure introduced into the wife’s uterus.
Once the Insemination consent form is accepted and signed, the IUI procedure would be initiated.
