IUI (Intra Utreine Insemination)

Artificial insemination is a technique where fertility is facilitated by inserting several sperms directly into the female gential tract. Depending upon the quality and the sperm count, insemination can be performed by two methods:

A) Artificial Insemination For Husband (AIH) : The male collects the semen by masturbation and then this is artificially placed in the vagina, on the mouth of the womb (cervix), with the aid of a syringe.

B) Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): The semen is collected by masturbation, which is processed in the laboratory. The seminal plasma is diccarded and the best quality sperms are harvested and kept in special culture media. The ratio of half to one ml of sperms is then aritificially deposited into the uterine cavity with the aid of a thin catheter IUI.

  • Who Can opt for IUI?

Causes for ejaculation failure include: 1.Diabetes 2.Multiple sclerosis 3.Spinal cord injury 4.Retrograde ejaculation 5.Men with mildly low sperm count, poor quality sperm or antipserm antibodies. Men who wish to freeze their sperm for possible future use before vasectomy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy for cancer.

  • COUPLES
    1. Couples with unexplained infertility 2. Indications For IUI Using Donors Sperm Males with azoospermia and who cannot afford advanced treatments such as ICSI. Males with genetic disorders, which can be prevented from being transmitted to the child by using donor sperms. At Dr. Padmaja Test Tube Baby Center, we treat patients with extremely low sperm counts. In such cases we advoacte 3 to 6 IUI cycle attempts with simultaneous treatment for increasing counts by a male specialist.
  • Procedure of IUI:
    1. Ovulation stimulation and monitoring.
    2. The IUI can be done in a natural cycle or stimulated cycle.
  • Natural Cycle
    The growth of a single egg in the growing follicle is monitored through vaginal sonography. Once the single follicle has reached an average diameter of 1.8 to 2 cm, an HCG injection is given to bring about ovulation (release of egg from the follicle) and IUI is done after 36 to 40 hours.
  • Stimulated Cycle
    Multiple egg formation is achieved through drugs such as Cloimphene Citrate, Gonadotropins (FSH or HMG) alone or in combination with Cloimphene or GnRh analogues. A key requirement for most ART treatment is the stimulation of multiple follicles for the production of more than one mature egg, as this is generally associated with improved chances of conception. The growth of the egg is monitored through vaginal sonography that shows follicle size and number.
  • IUI at Dr. Padmaja Fertility Center:
    Normally our unit does four IUI cycles using Clomiphene. If this fails to achieve pregnancy, we use a combination of Clomiphene with Gonadotropins (FSH), and try out two cycles. If this fails to achieve pregnancy, we try out one cycles with pure Gonadotrophin drugs, with or without GnRh analogue. In case this also fails, we go for either IVF or ICSI treatment.
  • Timing of IUI
    The patient is called for IUI 36-40 hours after HCG injection (at the time of ovulation). The incidence of ovulation is confirmed through a sonography, prior to the insemination or at times two isemination are performed-one after 24 hours and the other, 48 hours after HCG.
  • Semen Production
    The husband is given a sterile container. He is asked to produce sample by masturbation is a semen collection room. Alternatively, he can also produce the sample at home, provided he can come to the clinic within a period of 30-45 minutes.
  • Semen Preparation
    The semen is processed in the laboratory, using specially imported Culture Media. The semen can be processed and washed either by the standard swim-up method or the density gradient method using pure sperm. To maintain the patency of the sperms the Dr. Padmaja Fertility Center imported media-plastic ware and disposables.

    The Insemination IUI is a short procedure, lasting about 2 hours, from the time semen is produced till the time the patient is released from the hospital.
  • What are the success rates of IUI?
    The success rates vary from 15-20 % per cycle depending on the cause of infertility. The best results are seen among patients with cervical factor and IUI patients with severely low semen counts-less than 10 million per ml.

    Can the semen be processed by Dr. Padmaja Fertility Center, if the Insemination is done by the patients' neighbourhood Gynecologist? Yes, Dr. Padmaja Fertility Center provides qualitative laboratory facilitates to process semen for international as well as domestic patients. Typically in such a scenario, the husband produces the sample at our location processed. The IUI ready sample is placed in special portable Incubators, which can be carried by the husband to the Gynecologist. After the completion of IUI treatment, the Incubator is then returned to the lab. A facility like this one offers convenience and is also economical.
