Artificial Insemination Artificial Insemination IAC - IAD
In Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), sperm is injected directly into the uterine cavity around the time of ovulation. It is recommended as a treatment for several causes of infertility, especially if there is a problem with the sperm such as low count or motility (slow movement).
This treatment is also recommended when the male cannot ejaculate inside the vagina due to impotence, premature ejaculation or other medical causes.
This treatment could be done together with ovarian stimulation medication to mature more eggs.
It can be carried out with the semen of the partner (IUI) or with the semen from a donor (IUI-D).
The sperm sample will be “washed” to separate the sperm from the seminal fluid, this way we increase the possibility for the sperm to fertilise the egg. The gynaecologist will insert the capacitated sperm sample directly into the uterus using a catheter. This procedure will only take a few minutes and involves minimal discomfort.
