IUI treatment is different and minimally invasive as compared to other infertility treatments such as IVF. In this, the highest quality sperms are selected for injecting directly into the egg and thus, inviting higher chances of conception. The process of evaluating and selecting the sperm is done in the laboratory where the most motile sperm are identified for injection.
The selected sperm cells are directly inserted into the uterus during her ovulation period. This allows the sperms to get near the egg and enhances the chances of fertilization. What makes this treatment different is that it removes the time it takes for the sperms to travel, and thus, facilitates the process of fertilisation.
In the case of women, fertilisation can be further assisted with the use of fertility drugs. This medication help stimulate the ovaries to encourage them to produce more eggs, thus increasing the chances of fertilization. Also, ultrasound scans are carried out to evaluate the development of the follicles, and the hCG-Human Chorionic Gonadotropin injection is given at the predicted perfect timing that triggers ovulation. IUI treatment can be performed or in combination with other fertility treatments to increase the chances of success.
