IUI treatment

When you are having Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), we place specially prepared sperm directly into the womb at the time when eggs are being released.

What is the IUI treatment process?

While the risks of IUI are incredibly low, there is still a chance of the following:

  • Infection following the procedure.
  • Spotting. Inserting the catheter can cause a small amount of vaginal bleeding, but this rarely impacts the chances of pregnancy.
  • Multiple pregnancies, when performed with ovulation-inducing medication.

  • IUI is a good option for single women and same sex couples who don't have fertility issues but need donor sperm.
  • IUI is the lowest-cost form of assisted reproduction treatment.
  • There is no egg collection involved in IUI, meaning that there is no invasive procedure, and sedation is not required.
  • Incredibly safe, with very low risks involved.
  • Mostly painless procedure
