In some cases your Genea Fertility Specialist may recommend Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or Assisted Insemination (AI) as a simpler first attempt at fertility treatment or if one of these circumstances applies to you:
During an IUI cycle, we monitor your progress with blood tests and ultrasounds so that the insemination can be timed precisely - your Fertility Specialist may or may not prescribe ovarian stimulation. Close to the time of ovulation, we place the sperm directly into a woman's cervix or uterus with a soft, thin plastic tube.
IUI is not as effective as IVF in cases where there is low sperm count, or if you suffer from endometriosis. It’s also not recommended if your fallopian tubes are blocked or if the cause of your infertility is unknown.
The success rate of IUI relates directly to your age and the technique offers no better chance than that of a fertile couple who are having regular sex so pregnancy rates are five to 10 per cent per month, or 35 to 40 per cent over a six month course of treatment.
