Why is IUI done?

  1. Infertility: IUI is a fertility treatment used to help couples who are struggling to conceive due to various factors, including:
  • Low sperm count or mobility: If the male partner has a low sperm count or poor sperm motility, IUI can be used to bypass the cervical mucus and place sperm directly in the uterus, increasing the chance of fertilization.
  • Ovulation disorders: If the female partner is not ovulating regularly, IUI can be used in combination with fertility drugs to stimulate ovulation and increase the likelihood of conception.
  • Unexplained infertility: If a couple has been unable to conceive for an extended period of time with no clear explanation, IUI can be used as a first-line treatment option.
  1. Donor sperm: In cases where the male partner is unable to produce sperm, donor sperm can be used in combination with IUI to achieve pregnancy.
  1. Cervical factor infertility: In some cases, cervical mucus may be too thick or hostile to allow sperm to pass through and fertilize the egg. IUI can be used to bypass the cervix and place the sperm directly into the uterus.
