Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a common treatment for infertility. It can be used in cases where the male has a low sperm count, the cause of infertility is unknown, or when the female is not ovulating regularly. Ovulation inducing drugs are usually used as well.

In this technique, semen is collected into a sterile cup by masturbation or into a special condom sheath used during intercourse and then brought to the office laboratory. It is prepared in special media, similar to that used for IVF. The objective of IUI is to insert a concentrated quantity of sperm directly into the uterus bypassing the cervix.

Since IUI relies on the natural ability of sperm to fertilize an egg within the reproductive tract, the sperm function of the male must be reasonable and the fallopian tube(s) must be healthy and functional. Sperm function includes sperm number, shape and movement. The sperm wash takes about 45 minutes to 2 hours depending on the technique utilized. An IUI takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

Timing of the insemination to coincide with ovulation is critical. In order to ensure this occurs, timing of ovulation is monitored by urinary hormone tracking methods or sonogram. Urinary LH ovulation predictor kits indicate that ovulation will occur within a 24 to 48 hour window. The urinary tracking method is performed at home, generally in the late afternoon or early evening. When the test is “positive”, insemination is performed 24 to 36 hours later.

Another method used to time ovulation is sonography. The development of the follicle and impending release of the egg can be timed by serial ultrasounds performed in the office. Sonograms to time IUI's are usually used when the patients are taking oral or injectable fertility medications. Patients generally use an hCG injection to further ensure release of the egg.

Product and Services

Approximately 15% of all couples trying to become pregnant will have difficulty conceiving. In about 70% of these infertile couples, a cause can be identified. While 30% will have unexplained infertility, overall, approximately 60% of couples will conceive using basic treatment approaches.

The likelihood of achieving a pregnancy depends upon the specific cause of infertility. Certain diagnoses respond to treatment better than others. Individualized treatment plans are developed using a team approach between you and your physician. Infertility factors vary from one couple to the next. It is our desire to help you add to or start a family, we realize the physical, emotional, and financial impact of going through treatment.

The Reproductive Medicine Group offers a complete array of treatments – from treating basic and complex disorders to overcoming infertility with the most advanced Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) available. Basic fertility treatments include interventions aimed at correcting the identified cause for infertility as well as treatments to enhance fertility in couples with unexplained infertility.

Minimally invasive surgeries such as laparoscopy to remove scar tissue or endometriosis and hysteroscopy to remove endometrial polyps, a uterine septum or open a fallopian tube blocked at its insertion into the uterus can improve fertility. Identification and treatment of an infection can improve sperm function or enhanced the sperm-cervical mucous interaction. Fertility medications can improve the timing and quality of ovulation as well as correct luteal phase deficiencies. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) includes washing and concentrating the sperm which also may activate sperm function and placing sperm past the cervical mucous directly into the uterus improving the probability of more sperm reaching the egg.

IUI in combination with fertility medication use (both oral and injectable), ultrasound monitoring and HCG injection to trigger ovulation increases the chances of the egg and sperm interacting improving pregnancy rates significantly for many infertile couples. These types of treatments allow the sperm and egg to unite naturally within the woman's body.

These treatments do not allow us to confirm if the egg is actually fertilized by the sperm, if the cells divide to form an embryo, if the embryo enters the uterus or if the embryo implants into the uterus. However, almost 60% of couples are able to conceive with these types of treatments suggesting that the majority of couples are able to conceive with basic treatment interventions.

Of the remaining 40% of couples who do not conceive with basic treatments or in whom basic treatments would not be appropriate, the vast majority are able to become parents through in vitro fertilization either using their own eggs and their husband's sperm if egg health is acceptable and viable sperm are produced within the testes or with donor oocyte IVF if ovarian function or egg quality is poor.

Advanced fertility treatments (ART) involve the use of injectable fertility medications to increase the number of eggs produced, removing the eggs directly from the ovaries under sedation and uniting the eggs and sperm in a petri dish outside of the body. Fertilization and cell division are confirmed before the embryos are replaced directly into the uterus. Pregnancy rates correlate to the woman's age and embryo grade.
