IUI Do's and Don'ts

  1. 1. IUI Do’s and Don’ts
  2. 2. - A fertility treatment where the sperm are inserted into the uterine cavity to swim and penetrate towards the oocyte. What is Intrauterine Insemination
  3. 3. Most common method of artificial insemination used by assistive reproductive therapy centers and fertility clinics worldwide. It is less complicated, less painful, and less costly Compared to: • Intracervical Insemination, • Intratubal Insemination • Intrafollicular Insemination In the Philippine setting, IUI has been used extensively. Intrauterine Insemination
  4. 4. To undergo the intrauterine insemination procedure, your doctor will advise you on what you can and cannot do. 1. If you experienced any bleeding during intrauterine insemination, it would be best to wait 48 hours before engaging in sexual intercourse. If bleeding did not occur, then it would be considered safe to do so. Some pointers:
  5. 5. 2. Do not take any non-steroidal anti- inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as ibuprofen for any symptoms such as pain, cramping or discomfort. Instead, Paracetamol (i.e. acetaminophen) is a more appropriate medication for these symptoms.
  6. 6. 3. Waiting at least 48 hours before swimming is a good idea, at least as a cautionary measure. Although there have been no studies or evidence showing swimming or bathing to interfere with IUI, it is much better to be safe than sorry.
  7. 7. 4. Ambulate when you feel ready. After IUI, your cervix closes spontaneously to ensure that the sperm remains where it has been deposited and does not spill out. It is a good idea, however, to lie down and rest for at least a few minutes right after the procedure.
  8. 8. 5. Be careful when using vaginal suppositories. If you are currently on any suppository medications, be sure to ask your fertility physician how these medications may interfere with the procedure. Also, find out whether swimming or bathing would interfere or prevent them from achieving their desired therapeutic effect.
  9. 9. 6. Be patient. Wait one to two weeks before taking a pregnancy test. Implantation may take up to 12 days after ovulation to occur, and taking a pregnancy test too early will yield a negative result. You may already be nervous or anxious about whether the procedure is successful, but being hasty will does not help.
  10. 10. 7. Always manage expectations. Anyone undergoing IUI can expect a fertilization success rate anywhere between 15 and 20%, and this is heavily dependent on your partner’s sperm count as well as other fertility factors. Sperm samples with a low count are associated with a decreased success rate, whereas a larger count may have a success rate of up to 30%.
  11. 11. If IUI has not proven successful for you, you may consider in-vitro fertilization as the next step in fertility treatment. By design, fertilization takes place in an environment where more variables are controlled to optimize success rates, making IVF a much more aggressive means of therapy.
