Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

IUI involves depositing a concentrated amount of sperm from your partner or a donor directly into your uterus, using a catheter that passes through the cervix.

Side effects and drawbacks
You may feel cramping for a day or so.

Many women undergo “stimulated” IUI cycles in which fertility drugs are taken before the procedure. These drugs:

  • Raise your risk of havingtwins or more.
  • Raise your risk of developingOHSS (ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome).
  • Can cause side effects such as breast tenderness or mood swings.

Success rates
For couples with unexplained infertility, the pregnancy rate is 7 to 16 percent per stimulated IUI cycle.

Averages about Rs 10000/- excluding the cost of medicines/injections
