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