Unexplained infertility. IUI is performed as a first treatment for unexplained infertility along with ovulation-inducing medications. (SOMETIMES WITH LETROZ OR CC)

Mild male factor infertility (subfertility). IUI can overcome some of the problems of  subfertility as sample prepare have highly motile ,normal sperm from those of lower quality.

Cervical factor infertility. IUI bypasses the cervix, inseminate  sperm directly into the uterus of female which increase the number of sperm available to meet the awaiting egg.

Ovulatory factor infertility. IUI may also be performed for females who have infertility caused by ovulation, including an absence of ovulation or a reduced number of eggs.

Semen allergy. IUI can be effective, since many of the proteins in semen are removed before the sperm is inserted in a uterus.



IUI is a simple and safe procedure, and the risk occur in this procedure are very low. Risks include:-

Infection. There’s a  risk of developing an infection after a  procedure.

Spotting. Sometimes the process of placing the IUI catheter in the uterus causes a small amount of vaginal bleeding as instrument uses for IUI.

Multiple pregnancy. IUI isn’t related with an increased risk of a multiple pregnancy i.e. twin or triplet.

WHAT IUI NEED?                                                                                    IUI  involves careful coordination before the actual procedure:-

Preparing the semen sample. A semen sample (fresh) , or a vial of frozen donor sperm can be thawed and prepared.                                                             Monitoring for ovulation. As the timing of IUI is crucial, regular analysis  for signs of  impending ovulation is critical.                                                                                 1) An at-home urine ovulation predictor kit which detects release of luteinizing hormone.                                                                                                                     2) An imaging method i.e ultrasound that  help the  doctor to visualize  ovaries and egg growth.                                                                                                                   3) Injection of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) or medications to make you ovulate one or more eggs at the right time.                                                                  4) Most IUIs are done in a day or two after detecting ovulation.

The IUI procedure itself takes just a minute or two and requires no medications or pain relievers.

If a female didn’t become pregnant, she  might try IUI again before moving on to other fertility treatments. Often, the same therapy is used for three to six months to for the better results of pregnancy.

If you are not getting any benefit from IUI you can take another option that’s IVF (IN VITRO FERTILISATION)
