IUI Treatment

What is IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) Treatment?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a technique used to treat infertility. The term “intrauterine insemination,” or IUI, refers to the technique of fertilising an egg with the highest quality sperm by inserting those sperm directly into the uterus. The goal is to position the sperm in the best possible location to fertilise the egg. The procedure for Intrauterine insemination treatment is straightforward and non-invasive and requires little to no effort on the part of the couple. It is more cost-effective than more sophisticated methods like IVF and ICSI. Moreover the cost of iui treatment in india is significantly less than IVF.

What benefits does IUI have?

There are several intrauterine insemination benefits. Let’s see what they are:

IUI Treatment Benefits

Costs are kept to a minimum, and there is a minimal possibility of difficulties.
Very little discomfort: Since IUI does not necessitate the use of general anaesthesia, the process can be completed quickly and with minimal discomfort.

Sometimes, to avoid the risks of complications and adverse effects connected with fertility medicines. The procedure for intrauterine Insemination (IUI) can be performed without fertility medication to trigger ovulation.

Ovulation induction and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are two more reproductive therapies that can be used in conjunction with IUI to increase the success rate.

IUI offers a lower probability of multiple pregnancies than other fertility therapies like IVF, which may increase the risk of complications for the mother and the infants.

What is the procedure for IUI treatment?

Pre Procedure


Ovulation Induction (OI)

Fertility drugs are given to the female partner in order to trigger ovulation before to the IUI process. Injecting the woman with additional fertility medicines (hCG / GnRH Agonist) once 2–5 follicles have developed is done to stimulate ovulation. The specialist keeps tabs on all these data because it aids in pinpointing the optimal moment to carry out the IUI process.


Follicular Study (FS)

Ultrasound and blood tests are used to track a woman’s ovulation cycle. FS refers to the practice of using transvaginal sonography (TVS) to examine the progress of an egg.


Sperm Preparation

The procedure of preparing the sperm sample is known as a “sperm wash,” and it involves filtering out any sperm cells that are damaged or travelling too slowly and then concentrating on the best sperm. However, donor sperm doesn’t require semen washing because it’s already been cleansed and prepared for use.

IUI Procedure



  • The female partner will be contacted once the sperm and eggs have been prepared for the IUI procedure.
  • A small, flexible catheter will be inserted by your doctor through the cervix and into the uterus. Next, a little needle is used to inject the healthy sperm into the tube, which travels to the uterus, where an egg is waiting to be fertilised.
  • If the sperm fertilises the egg and the resulting embryo implants itself into the uterine lining, a pregnancy will result.
  • Intrauterine insemination often only takes around 10 to 15 minutes from start to finish, making it a much more convenient option.

Post Procedure

  • In most cases, IUI treatment generally goes smoothly and does not call for the use of anaesthesia or a hospital stay.
  • The female partner will be asked to take a pregnancy test after around two weeks to see if the IUI treatment was effective. If that doesn’t work, the fertility specialist may suggest trying IUI again.

How to prepare yourself for the procedure?

Getting your sperm ready

The hospital will require either a specimen of your partner’s semen or a vial of donor sperm that may be thawed and processed.

Ovulation-Tracking Methods

Timing is everything when it comes to intrauterine insemination. Therefore, it is essential to look for ovulation indicators. This can be done with the use of a home ovulation prediction kit, which monitors your body for a rise in luteinizing hormone (LH).

Possible Risk Associated with IUI

Intrauterine insemination is less invasive and risky than other methods. IUI Treatment is a safe procedure with a low chance of serious side effects.

IUI Treatment risk

When women use medication to stimulate their ovaries into producing more eggs, they sometimes experience a painful disease known as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHS). Some women get OHS throughout their pregnancies. If not, the symptoms should go away on their own within a week.

There is a very low risk of contracting an infection as a result of the surgery.

The insertion of the catheter into the uterus may cause mild vaginal bleeding. However, this bleeding does not interfere with a woman's ability to conceive.

IUI does not increase the risk of having multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc.). Drug administration around the time of ovulation somewhat improves the odds of producing twins or more. The odds of a successful multiple pregnancy are slightly higher than those of a single pregnancy. Some of the possible side effects include having a premature baby or a baby with a low birth weight.

Having a baby by IUI raises the possibility that the infant may be delivered prematurely and/or underweight.


You need to wait two weeks before taking a pregnancy test. It’s possible to receive a false positive result from an early test.

  • False Negative

A negative pregnancy test result is possible even if you are pregnant if the pregnancy hormones fail to be detectable.

  • False Positive

Although you may not actually be pregnant, the existence of the ovulation-inducing medication (such as HCG) in your system may create the impression that you are.

About two weeks after the home pregnancy kit results are in, your doctor will want you to come back for a blood test. A blood test will be able to recognise pregnancy hormones more accurately after fertilisation. If the initial IUI is unsuccessful, you can try it again before moving on to other reproductive procedures. In addition, if you keep up the same treatment for three to six months, you’ll increase your chances of becoming pregnant.

What is the IUI cost in Kolkata?

The total IUI cost in Kolkata can be affected by factors such as the degree of difficulty of the procedure, the necessity of fertility medicines, the number of treatment cycles needed, and the cost of the pills themselves. Moreover, consultation with a fertility specialist, ovarian stimulation, sperm preparation, intrauterine insemination (IUI), IUI monitoring, and pregnancy testing could be all be factored into the final price.

Due to the need for repeated ultrasounds following follicle monitoring, the overall cost of IUI treatment in India can rise after adding the other expenses. Depending on the specific therapy, Natural Cycle IUI can be more or less expensive than other forms of IUI. When compared to IVF, the IUI process is typically far less expensive.

IUI Treatment Success Rate

The success rate of IUI treatment is comparable to that of a fertile couple trying to become pregnant without medical intervention. The chance of becoming pregnant after undergoing just one cycle of IUI ranges from 10% to 20%. The success rate of IUI increases with the number of cycles attempted. The success rate of IUI might go as high as 75% if 4 or 5 cycles are used.

However, the success rate of IUI depends on a number of circumstances, including the woman’s age, the quality of the sperm, and any existing medical conditions. Women over the age of 40 have a poor IUI success rate of only 8%. Thus, ladies above the age of 40 should not attempt IUI. IUI has the highest success rate in unexplained and dis ovulatory infertility.
