IUI

What is IUI?

Infertility can be treated using assisted reproductive treatment methods or with artificial insemination. The most used method of artificial insemination is IUI (intrauterine insemination), where sperm is inserted into a woman’s uterus to increase the chance of fertilization. Frozen sperm that has been cryopreserved can be used for IUI purposes.

Success Rates -The success rates of IUI in Mexico are similar to those of natural conception through intercourse; 15-20% per cycle. The success rates of artificial insemination treatment depends on many factors affecting fertility, including the number of eggs produced, the quality and count of the sperm and the couple’s age.

IUI Procedure

  • Injecting the prepared sperm into the uterus

This monitoring will confirm that you are producing healthy eggs. It will also help determine the best timing for the injection of the sperm.

Before ovulation, there is a surge in luteinizing hormone (LH). Ovulation occurs within 1-2 days after the LH surge. Using the intrauterine insemination procedure, your doctor will inject the sperm at this time.

The sperm sample will be washed and prepared for the IUI procedure. This washing can remove potentially toxic chemicals that might be present in the sperm. Injection of the prepared sperm into the uterus is quick and virtually painless and is inserted with a very small, thin and flexible catheter into the cervix.
