IUI – Intrauterine Insemination
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is the process of preparing a sperm specimen to concentrate it for the most active motile sperm and placing the washed sperm into the uterus as close as possible to the tubal opening. Intrauterine insemination is often recommended because studies have shown that pregnancy is more likely to occur if timing of exposure to sperm is controlled, and if sperm is placed in higher numbers closer to the egg or eggs.
Who are the candidates for IUI ?
» have unexplained infertility;
» have failed other treatments;
» have mild male factor infertility;
» are single women who are using donor sperm;
» have ovulation problems and are undergoing ovulation induction;
» are unable to have normal intercourse with ejaculation into the
vagina at appropriate times
IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) Process :
There are many techniques available for preparing the sperm, most of which are derived from in-vitro fertilization laboratory techniques, or from study of sperm behavior in the laboratory. The goal in sperm processing is to separate the sperm cells from the seminal fluid, fluid that can be irritating to the uterine lining. In the process, the most active, motile sperm are concentrated and separated from dead sperm, cellular debris and bacteria.
The sperm can be collected at home and brought within one hour to the office or can be produced in a clinic’s sperm collection room. The laboratory will then perform a sperm count and motility evaluation and prepare the sperm. The usual preparation procedure takes about two hours. After preparation, the sperm concentrate is placed into the uterus, through the cervix, using a small catheter.
Some of the sperm will also be placed directly into the cervix. The actual insemination process takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
IVF – In Vitro Fertilization
About IVF :
IVF or In Vitro Fertilization involves retrieving eggs from the female and fertilizing them in the laboratory by placing them with the sperms. This means that the sperm must have the capacity to fertilize the egg on its own in IVF. In contrast, ICSI involves injecting a single sperm in the egg, and is therefore used in extreme cases when the sperm have no motility of their own.
Life Line Hospital is one of the best IVF center in Bhopal.
ICSI – Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a new procedure that allows couples with sperm problems to have IVF treatment. Developed in Belgium in 1992, ICSI is the process of injecting a single sperm into an egg.
