IntraUterine Insemination with the spouse’s sperm (IUI)

IUI : what is IUI?

IUI, short for Intrauterine Insemination, is a time-tested method in the field of in vitro fertilization (IVF). This approach, also referred to as artificial insemination or donor sperm IUI, entails the precise delivery of the male partner’s sperm into the patient’s uterus during her ovulation cycle.Many people express worry over the potential discomfort of IUI treatment. However, it is comforting to know that the procedure itself is not painful for the woman receiving it. This comforting factor adds to the appeal of IUI as a fertility option.

As we consider the length of the IUI procedure and its effects on day-to-day tasks, it’s important to note that the process is typically quite short, typically taking less than 20 minutes. After the procedure, patients can promptly get back to their regular routines, with many able to resume their normal activities within just 30 minutes. This swift recovery time offers a great advantage, as it allows for convenience for those undergoing the treatment while also aligning with the goal of minimizing disruption to daily life.

When is donor insemination a viable alternative to in vitro fertilization?

Donor insemination is artificial insemination – usually IUI insemination -IUI with donor sperm . Natural insemination depends on the presence of a certain number of motile sperm. If the number of sperm is too low to consider fertilization with your partner’s sperm, we usually recommend in vitro fertilization, possibly by intracytoplasmic single sperm injection (ICSI). However, if your partner has few or no sperm, or if in vitro fertilization is not economically feasible, donor insemination may be offered as an alternative.

Why is IUI essential for fertility?

This method streamlines the direct insertion of spermatozoa into the uterus, acting as a vital step in the intricate process of achieving fertility. As the oldest technique in the vast realm of in vitro fertilization (IVF), it offers a crucial starting point: a thorough examination of the couple’s fertility history. From there, the expert takes the reins, skillfully navigating the complex path to potential reproduction. Employing cutting-edge technology, the specialist closely monitors the patient’s ovulation, utilizing not only ultrasound but also meticulous blood tests. As reliable guides, these diagnostic tools pave the way for a tailored and accurate approach to intrauterine insemination (IUI).
