Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
What is IUI?
IUI is a type of artificial insemination in which a doctor inserts sperm directly into a woman’s uterus using a catheter. The goal of IUI is to achieve pregnancy by making it easier for sperm to reach and fertilize mature eggs in the female fallopian tubes leading to the uterus.
IUI Vs IVF
Intrauterine insemination, IUI treatment involves the process of placing the sperm directly into the uterus using a catheter. Whereas In-vitro fertilization (IVF), the eggs are first surgically removed by a needle going through the back of the vagina and those eggs are fertilized outside of the body.
IUI almost doubles a woman’s chances of becoming pregnant compared to sexual intercourse and the previous form of artificial insemination that involves inserting sperm into a woman’s vagina. After the IUI procedure, women under the age of 35 usually have a 10% chance of becoming pregnant. Women over the age of 35 are less than 5% more likely to become pregnant after IUI because their fertility declines as they get older.
