Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure where sperm is introduced into a woman's uterus during ovulation. It's suitable for couples with unexplained infertility, minor male infertility factors, and cervical mucus issues. Typically combined with ovulation-stimulating drugs, IUI can involve using either partner's or donor's sperm. Prior to IUI, women undergo assessment for hormonal imbalance, infection, or structural concerns.
Success Rate: International research indicates that combining fertility drugs and IUI leads to pregnancy rates ranging from 8% to 17% per cycle. These odds improve across multiple cycles. Individual success hinges on factors like infertility cause and age.
