IUI (IUI Husband/IUI Donor)


Dr. Puranik is a leading IVF specialist in Pune with 30+ years of experience providing comprehensive fertility care.

IUI, or Intrauterine Insemination, is a fertility treatment that involves placing washed sperm cells into the uterus, which increases the chances of fertilization. The sperm cells are collected in the laboratory, washed, and concentrated to improve the motility of the sperm cells. This process bypasses any obstructions in the cervix, increasing the likelihood of fertilization.

Eligibility for IUI

IUI may be a suitable option for several different situations, including:

  • Unexplained infertility
  • Ovulatory dysfunction
  • Donor sperm or surrogacy
  • Mild male factor infertility or abnormal semen analysis
  • Cervical factor infertility, including cervical stenosis
  • Endometriosis
  • Unsuccessful fertility treatments such as Clomid or Femara

During the initial consultation, several medical tests will be conducted to determine the underlying cause of infertility. After the diagnosis, Dr. Puranik will recommend the most suitable fertility treatment, including IUI.

Process or Steps of IUI

The IUI procedure consists of several steps, including:

  • Ovulation Induction

The woman will be treated with fertility medications to encourage the ovaries to produce multiple eggs during her menstrual cycle. This step will help increase the chances of successful fertilization.

  • Monitoring the Ovaries

Throughout the ovulation induction treatment, the woman’s ovaries will be monitored through blood tests and ultrasound examinations to assess the response to the medication regimen.

  • Sperm Collection

In the laboratory, sperm cells are prepared for IUI. The medical staff will use a special media solution to wash the sperm cells, discard any damaged or slow-moving cells, and concentrate the healthy sperm cells into a small volume.

  • Intrauterine Insemination

During the IUI procedure, a medical professional will gently insert a thin, flexible catheter with carefully selected and concentrated sperm cells directly into the uterus. This is typically a painless procedure that takes only a few minutes.

  • Success Rates of IUI

Success rates of IUI vary depending on individual cases, including age, fertility health, and underlying medical conditions. According to research, the success rate of IUI is typically between 6-20%, with the success rate increasing with each treatment cycle.

IUI for Donor

IUI can be performed with sperm cells from a donor. In this case, the clinic will choose a suitable donor based on the recipient’s requirements. The donor’s sperm cells are obtained, frozen, and quarantined for at least 180 days to ensure they are free of infections. After quarantine, the sperm cells are thawed, washed, and concentrated to increase their viability.

The success rates for donor IUI vary, depending on various factors such as age, medical history, and underlying medical conditions.

IUI for Husband

IUI can also be performed with the husband’s sperm cells. The collected sperm cells are washed, concentrated, and prepared in the laboratory for insemination. Freshly collected sperm cells have a higher success rate during IUI than frozen sperm cells.

IUI for the husband’s sperm cells is often recommended for couples with mild male, unexplained, and cervical factor infertility. The success rates for husband IUI vary, depending on various factors such as age, medical history, and underlying medical conditions.
