Intrauterine Insemination (Definition)

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

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?

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

I m 30yrs.2 left ovarian dermoid cysts 1.5*1.6cm, 1.8*1.7 CM without any symptoms.My amh is 0.82ng/ml.Iui failed twice.Why?

I m 30yrs.2 left ovarian dermoid cysts 1.5*1.6cm, 1.8*1.7 CM without any symptoms.My amh is 0.82ng/ml.Iui  failed twice.Why?

Low AMH: A low amh means that you have very few ovarian reserve (very few eggs). This means that the success rates of ivf are going to be very low. Many doctors would ask you to consider using donor eggs to increase the chance of success. As for the dermoid cysts you can discuss the option of surgical removal with your doctor. ...Read more

Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Yes, IVF is better: At age 39 with DOR, you may try few cycles Clomid (clomiphene) IUI, but IVF is a better option. The reason is with DOR, you don't have many embryos to work with. On the other hand, if you do IVF, you may bank embryos and do FET later. At age 39, I strongly recommend to do Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) of your embryos prior to transfer. It will increase your change of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage ...Read more

After ct doctors concluded there was a ruptured ovarian cysts. Tubes blocked near uterus. Fibroids outside wall. would Reopening tubes help iui?

Maybe: Re0opening fallopian tubes at the narrowest juncture to the uterus(isthmus) is a very, very difficult microsurgical procedure and often fails. Removing the fibroids and considering IVF is a better choice as IUI in your present condition is a non starter. ...Read more

Preparing for IUI and taking menopur daily. Is intercourse advisable at anytime during the stimulation of follicles?

Preparing for IUI and taking menopur daily. Is intercourse advisable at anytime during the stimulation of follicles?

Yes, unless advised: Most couples doing IUI cycles with ovulation induction medications should have intercourse 2-3 x a week to cover you if you ovulate early, and to 'keep his sperm specimen fresh'. With injectable medicines like Menopur you have more potential to make too many eggs than with Clomid (clomiphene) / Letrozole tablets, so your clinic will monitor you and tell you not to have intercourse if you over-respond to shots. ...Read more

Why would an IUI without washing/cleaning the sperm be dangerous? Why could it cause shock? R sperm naturally cleaned during travel w intercourse?

Why would an IUI without washing/cleaning the sperm be dangerous? Why could it cause shock? R sperm naturally cleaned during travel w intercourse?

High volume antigens: During the iui, you are being exposed to a large amount of "foreign" material very quickly. With sex, the vagina delivers the sperm to the cervix slowly. Most of the semen which nourishes the sperm is left behind. With washing, you are reducing the semen delivery while maximizing the delivery of high quality sperm. ...Read more
