Most couples dream of a healthy and happy child for themselves, and owing to the modern lifestyle, this remains a dream for several couples. However, with advanced medical sciences, many couples can successfully conceive through various ARTs (Assisted Reproductive Techniques). Amongst all the ARTs, IUI has been successful in helping couples with issues conceive a child of their own.
What is an IUI procedure, and how does it work?
IUI is an infertility treatment in which the sperm is placed into a woman’s uterus. Sperm is inserted into the uterus beyond the cervix. This shortens the sperm travel time. If the sperm meets the egg sooner, the chances of conception increase drastically.
The choice of ART is highly dependent on the cause of infertility. IUI is suggested in the following cases:-
- If women have ovulation issues.
- Women facing issues with fallopian tubes or cervical muscle abnormalities
- If the male partner has ejaculatory dysfunction and erectile dysfunction.
Top 10 Post care tips for a successful IUI treatment in Hyderabad
