IUI treatment - India offers the best and less cost infertility treatment programs

  1. 1. IUI treatment - India offers the best and less cost infertility treatment programs SUMMARY IUI treatment (IUI) also called artificial insemination has a long history and is much less "hi-tech" than some other methods of assisted conception. In IUI treatment warmed prepared sperm is introduced into the woman's uterus (womb) at around the time of ovulation, with the aim of getting the sperm nearer to the egg. The procedure is often combined with fertility drugs. Who might benefit? IUI treatment can help couples where the man has a low sperm count or poor motility (the ability of the sperm to move), as long as there are sufficient levels of healthy, motile sperms to make the treatment worthwhile. If not, IVF or ICSI will be more suitable. Different clinics use different criteria to decide whether the quality of sperms is sufficient for IUI. Because sperm is placed directly inside the woman, IUI can also help couples who are unable to have intercourse because of disability, injury, or difficulties such as premature ejaculation. It is also recommended for women with mild endometriosis, and is often used as the first line of assisted conception treatment for couples with "unexplained infertility". Women without a male partner may also want to have IUI, as using sperm donated through a clinic has a number of advantages over self-insemination at home. How it is done? IUI is timed to take place at the time of natural ovulation. You may be asked to detect ovulation using an ovulation predictor kit, or your doctor may track your cycle using blood and urine tests. IUI is usually done between about day 12 and day 15 of a natural menstrual cycle, but the exact day will depend on your particular cycle and when ovulation is detected. If your fertility specialist has offered you IUI during a stimulated cycle, you'll probably be given fertility drugs in the form of an injection and nasal spray. You'll start taking the drug near the beginning of your menstrual cycle to stimulate your ovaries to develop several mature eggs for fertilisation. (You normally release only one egg a month.) Your doctor will use ultrasound to detect ovulation and make sure that insemination is carried out at the optimum time. You may ovulate naturally, or be given an injection of the hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) to bring this on. Once you ovulate, your partner produces a sperm sample, which is "washed" to extract the best quality, most mobile sperm. Using a catheter (tube) through your cervix, doctors then put this sperm directly into your uterus near a fallopian tube (the passage the egg travels along from an ovary to your uterus). This is IUI. If you have unexplained infertility, the sperm may be inserted within a larger volume of fluid than usual so it can wash up into the fallopian tubes more easily. This technique takes a few minutes more than standard IUI and
  2. 2. is known as "fallopian sperm perfusion". It has been shown to increase the chances of success in cases of unexplained fertility. You rest for a short time afterwards and then carry on life as normal. You'll be able to take a pregnancy test in about two weeks. How long will treatment last? The insemination itself is straightforward and takes only a short time but, if you are having a stimulated cycle, you'll be on fertility drugs before you ovulate. Success rate Success rates depend on the causes of you and your partner's infertility and your age. You're more likely to conceive if you're trying to solve a cervical mucus problem than a sperm quality problem. The success rate for IUI with fertility drugs is about 15 per cent per cycle. What are the advantages? This procedure of IUI treatment can be an effective solution for men with a low sperm count or poor sperm motility, where the sperm can't make the long journey to the egg. It's technique gives advantages to couples who have problems because a man's sperm can't get through the woman's cervical mucus, perhaps because of an immune reaction. It can only work for couples where the woman has no fallopian tube blockages. Donor sperm can be used in cases where the man is producing no sperm at all, or where a woman wants to have a baby on her own or within a same-sex relationship. In the latter case, the advantages of going to a clinic for IUI with donor sperm include proper screening of the donated sperm for infections such as HIV and hepatitis. The legal rights and responsibilities of the father if the baby is conceived using fresh sperm do not apply if frozen donated sperm is used. Why consider India?
