Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

The highly motile and morphologically normal sperm are harvested by density gradient separation technique from the semen which is usually a mixture of pus cells and abnormal sperm. The separated good sperm is enriched with special medium using highly sterile technique. We also prepare sperm sample for other clinics so that they can perform IUI independently at their centre and improve the success rate of intrauterine insemination. Woman with ovulatory dysfunction, treated endometriosis with patent tubes, luteal phase defects, cervical factor incompatibility, polycystic ovarian disease , can try IUI first before trying more advanced techniques of Assisted Reproduction. Men with slightly compromised semen parameters can also benefit from IUI. A cozy room specially designed for semen collection is available for the male partner. The room provides absolute privacy. The cumulative pregnancy rates after 6 cycle of IUI is about 70 - 80%.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) - chance of success:

It is difficult to assess success rates for intrauterine insemination (IUI) because success depends upon the cause of infertility and whether fertility drugs are used to stimulate egg production.
Discuss with your clinician whether fertility drugs are suitable for you. Usually, it would be reasonable to try three to six IUI treatments. Your clinician will advise what is best for you.

• 15.8% (237/1497) for women aged under 35
• 11.0% (154/1394) for women aged between 35-39
• 4.7% (23/492) for women aged between 40-42
• 1.2% (2/172) for women aged between 43-44
• ** (0/46) for women aged over 44

If IUI fails after several attempts, depending on your age, your doctor may suggest you try another treatment such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF).
