What is is IUI and how does it work?
IUI is a form of Assisted reproductive technology (ART) a fertility treatment in which the egg and sperm are handled. IUI works by putting sperm cells directly into your uterus around the time you’re ovulating, helping the sperm get closer to your egg. This cuts down on the time and distance sperm has to travel, making it easier to fertilize your egg.
What can I expect during IUI?
You have to take fertility medicines that stimulate ovulation for the treatment. Semen is collected from your partner or a donor which goes through a process called “sperm washing” that collects a concentrated amount of healthy sperm from the semen. During the procedure, the doctor slides a thin, flexible tube through your cervix into your uterus. A small syringe is used to insert the sperm through the tube directly into your uterus. Pregnancy happens if sperm fertilizes an egg, and the fertilized egg implants in the lining of your uterus.
Time taken for the procedure
The insemination procedure is done in the OPD and it only takes about 5-10 minutes and you don’t need anesthesia. IUI is usually not painful, but some people have mild cramping.
