Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

intrauterine insemination

One of the fertility treatments provided by Rosemark’s infertility doctors is an intrauterine insemination procedure also known as an IUI. After an initial consultation with the infertility doctor, they may decide that the intrauterine insemination procedure (IUI) may be helpful for the couple to conceive.

Prior to the procedure, the Rosemark infertility doctor may prescribe medication that will help with ovulation induction. On the day of the procedure the couple will bring in a sample of healthy sperm from the male partner or donor sperm bank. The sperm will be prepared and then placed into the uterus as close to the time of ovulation as possible.

There are risks of uterine perforation that may occur during the intrauterine insemination procedure. Additionally, multiple pregnancies can occur if ovulation drugs are being used. Insemination may be canceled if there are too many eggs developing and insemination procedures are never a guarantee of pregnancy.
