Intrauterine insemination is a type of a fertility treatment conducted to increase the number of sperm that reach the Fallopian tubes, and hence improve the chances of fertilization. During IUI procedure, the fast-moving sperm are separated from more sluggish or non-moving sperm. These sperms are then used for the IUI process.
IUI procedure starts with the preparation of the sperm sample. The sperm is washed to remove potentially toxic chemicals possibly present on it that your body may negatively react to. Then your doctor will insert a small, flexible and thin catheter into your cervix and inject the washed sperm into your uterus.
The IUI treatment success rate might depend on several factors such as the age of the partners and the overall fertility. The overall IUI success rate is about 20 percent per cycle. Some of the IUI treatment side effect include mild cramps which are similar to period pains and the risk of multiple pregnancies. There are chances of infection in the uterus as well after IUI.
IUI cost depends on the type of clinic or hospital that conducts the procedure. Ultrasound and blood monitoring of follicle development might be charged additionally.
