Ziva fertility centre’s offers best in class IUI treatment in Hyderabad. We ensure quality treatment with equal focus on care.
Intrauterine Insemination is a simple fertility treatment that could be a starting point for couples who are having difficulty in conceiving. The purpose of IUI is to increase the number of sperms in your fallopian tube, hence maximizing the chances of conception. In many situations, IUI is a better, cheaper and an easier alternative you could try.
IUI is usually not recommended if your partner has severe male infertility or if you have blocked fallopian tubes.
The IUI treatment process –
On the day of insemination, the sperm sample is taken from your partner at our clinic. IUI procedure takes a few minutes and does not involve anaesthesia. Your fertility specialist will clean your cervix and with the help of a small catheter insert a drop of washed, concentrated sperms into your uterus.
During your IUI treatment, injections can also be used to help stimulate your ovaries for the production of eggs. This procedure is carried out around the time of ovulation, helping the sperms to get closer to your egg. It is not a painful procedure but might cause mild cramping.
When do we suggest IUI?
- Mild sperm abnormalities
- Unexplained infertility
- Tubal disease
Donor insemination (DI)
IUI can also be performed using donor sperms, which is obtained from an anonymous source from the semen bank. Donor insemination is mostly if your male partner does not produce sperms or even when the sperms are of poor quality and there is a risk of passing any genetic disease.
Before you agree to use donor sperm it is important to understand how you and your partner feel about it. At ZIVA, we will understand your emotions and concerns that you can discuss with our doctors.
After having unsuccessful attempts of IUI, you can go forward with Advanced Reproductive Techniques such as In-vitro Fertilization (IVF).
Success rates of IUI –
According to a study, age plays a vital role in the treatment of IUI. For women under the age of 40, three IUI cycles are recommended before moving forward with IVF treatment. Per-cycle success rates for IUI are about 16.4% for the first three times. The success rates are seen to show a decline after three times. This is why IVF is recommended after three cycles of IUI.
For women above the age of 40, low pregnancy rates are observed. Therefore, it’s the best decision to move directly to IVF treatment in such cases.
