IUI treatment for Infertility
IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) is the process referred to as artificial insemination which involves placing the sperm inside the woman’s reproductive tract to result in fertilization. You need to visit the best IVF Centre in Punjab to understand better how the treatment will be curated for you. At our fertility clinic in Moga, many couple’s chances of conception have been increased by undergoing fertility treatment under the supervision of our fertility doctor.
IUI treatment: Boost chances of conception
IUI is the most popular choice for women having problems conceiving due to problems in male and female like:
- Poor Cervical Mucus
- Cervical scarring
- Ejaculation issue
- Mild sperm abnormality
- Erectile dysfunction
Most couples prefer this treatment because it is a non-surgical approach and the treatment is done within less time. Although, this treatment is not best for women who are diagnosed with serious endometriosis, pelvic infection, and blocked fallopian tubes, or who have extremely low sperm count.
IUI treatment is curated after proper diagnosis
The doctor will give you the IUI treatment after doing a proper medical assessment be it men or women. In the case of a male partner the doctor will do semen analysis and for women hormonal levels are checked which includes:
- Anti-mullein hormone (AMH)
- Follicle-stimulating Hormone (FSH)
The doctor will perform ultrasound, physical tests, and check your medical history to understand the reason behind your problem in a better manner.
5 major steps performed with IUI treatment
- Preconception Admonishing from Doctor
Doctor medical advice will help you better understand your situation and how you need to focus on your maternal health. In addition, your diet plan is made and you will be suggested not to drink & smoke. By doing so, your fertility treatment plan will be made.
- Ensuring Production of Eggs
It is important to start the treatment on time which means finding the right timing or sperm insemination for IUI. If you have undergone the IUI procedure earlier and to boost your chances of conception then the doctor will suggest oral drugs to stimulate ovulation.
- Tracking your monthly cycle
Your ovulation cycle is tracked throughout the cycle and this is done by checking the cervical mucus and checking the temperature throughout the cycle & checking when is the right time. When the ovulation is tracked it is easy to determine the right step for starting the IUI.
- Sperm harvesting
For the IUI treatment, fresh or frozen sperm can be used. In the case of the fresh one then your partner or your acquired sperm donor will need to be there. If the fresh sperm is not available, then there are frozen or donated sperm which helps in fertilization. More sperm there will increase the chances of sperm fertilizing the egg effectively.
- Sperm insertion
The sperm is washed and cleaned to take out all the impurities. During IUI, the doctor will use a thin long tube which is referred to as a catheter, and then the sperm is put back into the uterus. It is put into the uterus through the vagina which goes from the cervix area, and then the tube releases the sperm, and then the further journey of sperm meeting the egg will continue.
- Pregnancy test
The last step is the pregnancy test to check for the results, which is done after a few days of insemination.
