Intrauterine insemination (iui) is where fresh or frozen partner or donor sperm is prepared or 'washed' to increase the sperm quality then gently injected through your cervix after a speculum exam, like a pap smear exam. It should be painless or cause mild cramping only. Iui helps with mild to moderate sperm problems. Iui preparations should have at least 2 million moving ...Read more
Yes: Success rates are better with normal sperm counts. However, most studies suggest that once you have over 10-20 million moving sperm in the IUI specimen then the pregnancy rates are the same. Counts of <1 million sperm are much less likely to result in pregnancy. Counts of > 1million and < 5 million can lead to pregnancy but again higher is better. My record low count was 50, 000 for an IUI baby. ...Read more
Depends how low. ..: In general intrauterine insemination (iui) may help with mild to moderate sperm problems but ivf with icsi (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is better for severe sperm problems. If semen analysis shows total motile counts (tmc) of less than 10 million on more than one sa, or IUI preparations have less than 2 million 'postwash' tmc (after the sperm is prepared) on a regular basis, icsi is needed. ...Read more

I'm a polycystic ovarian also my hubby's sperm count is also low. Did IUI 3 times but didn't conceive. What can I do?
Well, there is: Always in vitro. One thing is your husbands testosterone level. If low this can affect the sperm count. Also, 30 % of women w/pcos will ovulate on metformin at 1500mg, this may help you as well with some weight loss, if needed. If testosterone replacement helps your husband and metfrormin helps you, it may be a winner, otherwise the IUI should do it at some point, good luck. ...Read more

How effective would IUI be with just one follicle : 17 mm on Day 10?? Husbands sperm count: normal. I was a poor responder to 3 cycles of Clomid (clomiphene).
Debatable: The effectiveness of IUI with a normal semen analysis. Clomid (clomiphene) does create a mucous problem in about 40% of patients so IUI can make sense if that is the stim drug. Letrozole on the other hand does not cause a mucous problem. In our opinion, IUI is not helpful in this case. In conclusion, if Clomid (clomiphene) is your drug, IUI can be helpful and likely would yield a PR of 8-13%/cycle. Good Luck ...Read more

This is complicated!: Try a Virtual Consult with one of our gyno specialists? Also, ask YOUR fertility specialist what point (s) in the process they think this failed and what's the next step. Also, if they're monitoring your natural progesterone levels, are they consistent with ovulation? External progesterone helps maintain pregnancy but won't help trigger ovulation. IVF requires healthy ova for success. ...Read more
