Egg Donor

Egg Donor in Iswarya Fertility Center

IUI stands for Intra Uterine Insemination. Performance: Through the cervix a very thin flexible catheter is threaded and then a washed sperm is directly injected into the uterus. The whole process doesn?t take very long. A process that maybe takes a couple of minutes (60-90 seconds for the catheter and then the sperm injection to be introduced and to remove the catheter another 60-90 seconds), usually required by it is the insertion of a speculum and later the catheter and it is done slowly to reduce the discomfort. A tenaculum is used to hold the cervix sometimes, when the cervix is hard to reach. This makes the process a bit more uncomfortable. Shown below is a typical Tomcat catheter.

Facts of Egg Donor Treatment in Iswarya Fertility Center

Through a catheter when sperm are washed and placed into the uterus then that procedure is called IUI which stands for Intra Uterine Insemination. By masturbation, the male partner produces a semen sample. Separated from the prostaglandins, white blood cells, seminal plasma and other debris is the sperm which are filtered out during natural intercourse. Into the woman?s vagina a speculum is inserted and a catheter with an attached syringe which contains the washed sperm is inserted into the uterus through the cervix. The catheter and the speculum are removed when the specimen (prepared semen) is injected.

It can cause some discomfort, mainly when the catheter is passed through the cervix. Some patients will describe it like a pap smear in terms of the level of discomfort.

Will I be successful with the IUI for the first time? A few cycles of IUI may be necessary before you are successful. Many fertility doctors recommend doing 2 inseminations back to back, to increase your chance of pregnancy.

How soon after IUI can I take a pregnancy test? Two weeks after the procedure.

Within 6 hours either side of ovulation ideally an IUI should be performed- some doctors believe for male factor infertility after ovulation is better otherwise before ovulation chances of success are higher with insemination with the sperm waiting for the egg. The IUIs are usually done between 24 and 48 hours later when timing is based on an hCG injection. To have a single IUI at about 36 hours post-hCG, would be a typical timing, though it is done by some at 24 hours, while better results are reported by some clinics when they do the IUI at 40-42 hours post-hcg. If there is a schedule of two IUIs spacing of 12 hours apart is done between 24 and 48 hours after the hCG. Some reports suggest it may increase success as much as 6 percent while some show no increase in success rates with two IUIs. On a natural LH surge some doctors will base the timing. A single IUI at 36 hours is the norm in that case but since ovulation may be a bit earlier doing them at 24 hours is also pretty common. Usually timed between 12 and 48 hours after the surge is detected two inseminations are planned. After it is released the egg is only viable for a maximum of 24 hours.

Searching a number of websites and about a dozen medical journal articles resulted in a range of statistics that was wide. The odds of success are basically, reported to be as high as 26 percent and just under 6 percent per cycle. as high 26 percent success was a result of multiple follicles while with one follicle the statistics were low. Another influencing factor is the sperm count. Odds of success are increased by higher sperm count. Judging from the articles which will be abstracted below, the overall success rate seems to be between 15-20 percent per cycle. 23-30 percent will be the rate of multiple gestation pregnancies.

Along the same lines as having a pap smear, IUI is considered to be fairly painless by most women. Some cramping can be felt afterward but usually, what is felt is related to ovulation rather than from the IUI. Since the cervix is already slightly open for ovulation the catheter usually doesn?t feel like much. Discomfort at the cervix may be caused by a poorly timed IUI.
