IUI stands for INTRA UTERINE INSEMINATION. IUI literally means that the sperms are injected or inseminated into the uterine cavity of the woman. IUI treatment first begins with the development of the woman’s eggs. This process is called Ovulation Induction or Super ovulation. In ovulation induction, the aim is to produce or develop one follicle (egg). In Super ovulation, the aim is to produce or develop two or more follicles (eggs). Once these eggs are produced, we allow them to mature. A follicle is said to be mature once it reaches 18 mm in size. only mature eggs have to ability to be fertilized and produce pregnancy.

IUI treatment is indicated in couples who have male factor infertility. This includes patients who have low sperm count and low sperm motility. In men with low sperm count, IUI produces high success rates as compared to natural intercourse. The recommended sperm count for IUI treatment is more than 10 million, and ideally more than 20 million. IUI treatment works best when the motility is more than 50 percent rapid linear. This means that more than 50% of the sperms should have a good rapid forward motility. Below these parameters, IUI treatment may be attempted, but it may lead to poor or sub optimal results. ICSI fertility treatment is recommended for men with very low sperm count or poor motility. Do see our youtube channel videos to understand this topic in detail.

There are couples in who the husband and wife stay apart due to work related reasons. The husband may be working in a foreign country or on a ship and he may be getting a very short leave. These couples may opt for sperm freezing. In cases of sperm freezing, the husband’s sperms are frozen and stored with us in the clinic. The woman undergoes follicle stimulation and when the eggs are ready, she can do IUI with her husband’s own sperms.
