Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

IUI with Controlled Ovarian Hyperstimulation

Ovarian stimulation involves giving hormone medications either in the form of tablets or injections in order to produce multiple follicles. Usually the requirement is to produce 2-3 follicles in an IUI cycle and never more than 4. This is done so that more oocytes are available for fertilization, since every follicle may not give a viable egg. Gonadotropin injections may be used in an IUI cycle to encourage the development of required eggs. Use of such injections is dependent upon the cause(s) of the couple's infertility, their treatment history and many other factors. Patients undergoing ovarian stimulation, are monitored through transvaginal ultrasounds, which allow the physician to visualize the ovaries and follicles. IUI success rates using Gonadotropins are usually higher than in non-medicated cycles due to increased egg production.However it may increase the risk of multiple gestation. At Xenith, due to careful attention and expertise, the incidence of multiple pregnancy in IUI is extremely low.

IUI Timing

IUI is planned around the time of ovulation. Once a woman's follicles mature, an injection of HCG is given to help ovulation, which occurs approximately 36 hours after the injection.

IUI and Multiples

Our infertility specialists carefully monitor all IUI cycles and are trained to adjust medication dosages appropriately to minimize the risk of multiple births. Sometimes an IUI cycle may be cancelled or converted to an IVF cycle if the risk of multiple births is too great. It is unusual for high order multiples to result from IVF because the physician controls the number of embryos transferred to the uterus. It is hence necessary to choose your Treatment Centre carefully. Xenith Advanced Fertility Center is one of the best Infertility treatment Centres in Pune.
