What Is IUI?
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is one of the many fertility processes that we offer our patients.
IUI aims to make achieving pregnancy easier by cutting out the need for sperm to enter through the cervix. This greatly improves the chances of it successfully reaching the egg.
Who can IUI help?
The IUI procedure is suitable for almost everyone.
We can usually help anyone suffering from sex-related problems, achieve their goal by using IUI as a method of fertility treatment. This is because problems such as premature ejaculation or difficult intercourse are simply a matter of the sperm being unable to reach the egg – something which is easily overcome by intrauterine insemination.
Women in same-sex relationships, or single women who are trying to conceive can also use IUI paired with donor sperm to conceive.
Women with mild endometriosis may benefit from our help with IUI. Endometriosis is when the lining of the uterus grows in places other than where it is meant to. IUI can help people suffering with this to conceive, as it will give the sperm cells a small boost and help it to reach the egg.
The IUI procedure is usually extremely quick and painless. Therefore, there is not often a need for any form of aftercare. Women who undergo the IUI process are often able to leave the clinic right away and continue with their day, although we do always recommend some rest and relaxation.
