What is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

In the natural process of conceiving, the sperms travel through the mouth of the uterus, called the cervix, into the uterus and the fallopian tubes. The fallopian tubes are tube-like structures attached to the uterus on either side. A woman becomes pregnant when the egg from the woman’s ovary is fertilized by the sperm. This happens inside the fallopian tube. Sometimes, couples experience difficulty conceiving a baby, a condition known as infertility. If you have not been able to get pregnant, IUI is one of the methods suggested by Dr. Manisha Risbud , from Srujan Maternity & Nursing Home, Pune to have a baby. Intrauterine insemination, also known as IUI, is one of the verified assisted methods of reproduction in which the sperm from the man is placed directly inside the uterus of the woman’s body. It helps them have a successful pregnancy. This is advised after a careful evaluation by Dr. Manisha Risbud , from Srujan Maternity & Nursing Home, Pune, with the purpose of treating infertility and increasing the chances of fertilization. The ultimate goal of doing IUI is to improve your chances of getting pregnant.

  • Low sperm count or inadequate quality of sperm in your partner
  • Unexplained cause of infertility

What to expect at the consultation for Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

During your first consultation, you shall meet the fertility specialist, Dr. Manisha Risbud , from Srujan Maternity & Nursing Home, Pune. The doctor shall ask about your medical history and examine you. At the clinic, you and your partner may have to undergo some tests based on which the doctor shall recommend the best treatment option to help you have a successful pregnancy. For IUI, Dr. Manisha Risbud shall share the plan of treatment with you after receiving reports of your tests. The plan shall involve deciding upon the time of IUI, based on your ovulation, or menstrual cycle, prescribing some fertility medicines, collecting and washing the sperm sample, and injecting the sperm into the uterus. You shall be monitored through blood tests and sonography throughout the process.

How is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) performed at Srujan Maternity & Nursing Home, Pune?

The IUI is carried out at the time of ovulation. During ovulation, the mature egg in the woman’s ovary is released into the fallopian tube. You shall be given an appointment for the procedure according to your ovulation window. Dr. Manisha Risbud may give you a few medicines to stimulate ovulation. During the appointment, the doctor shall also ask for the semen sample from your partner or the donor. The semen sample is sent to a laboratory for sperm washing to obtain the best quality sperm. It usually takes about two hours for sperm to wash. The IUI procedure shall be carried out by Dr. Manisha Risbud , from Srujan Maternity & Nursing Home, Pune. To begin with the procedure, you shall be asked to lie on the procedure table. The doctor shall examine the cervix with the help of a speculum and insert a flexible tube called a catheter through the cervix into the uterus. The washed sperm is injected slowly into the uterus through this tube. This is a painless and simple procedure that takes only a few minutes to complete. You may resume your daily routine activities after the completion of the procedure.

What will happen after Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

After the procedure is completed, you shall be discharged from the clinic on the same day. You may get back to your routine daily work after the procedure. You may experience slight pain in the lower part of the stomach or a few blood stains from the vagina. This may go away within a day or two and does not require medical attention.

You shall be called for an appointment with Dr. Manisha Risbud , from Srujan Maternity & Nursing Home, Pune, two weeks after the IUI procedure. The staff at Srujan Maternity & Nursing Home shall test your urine sample for pregnancy. If the urine test is positive for pregnancy, the doctor monitors your pregnancy through check-ups, blood tests, and ultrasounds. When pregnancy does not happen after the first IUI procedure, Dr. Manisha Risbud shall prepare for the repeat IUI according to your next ovulation window.

The success rate of the IUI depends upon the cause of infertility, your age, the use of fertility medicines, or the quality of the sperm of your partner or donor. IUI has not been found successful in couples where the men have very low sperm count, or women have blocked tubes.

What are the risks associated with Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

IUI is a safe, quick, and painless procedure. A few risks associated with IUI are:

  • IUI increases your chances of having twins or triplets. Babies may be low birth weight if there are twins or triplets.
  • Rarely, some women may develop an infection. If needful, Dr. Manisha Risbud shall prescribe some medicines to treat the infection.
  • Some women may experience blood spots from the vagina after the procedure. This does not require medical treatment and subsides on its own.
  • Some women experience mild cramps in the stomach after the procedure.
  • When women have taken excessive medicines for fertility, they may experience pain in the stomach due to swelling in the ovaries.
  • You may feel sick after taking fertility medicines or experience weight gain. Talk to Dr. Manisha Risbud about it.
