Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure which prepared sperm is placed in the womb close to the time of ovulation. The semen is prepared to separate fast moving sperm from sluggish or non-moving sperm.
Who can undergo IUI for infertility treatment?
IUI is not suitable in women with tubal blockage or severe tubal damage, ovarian failure, severe male factor infertility, advanced women age (41 years or more) and severe endometriosis.
In the field of IVF, one of the biggest challenges is to select the embryo most likely to result in the birth of a healthy baby.
In the process of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) fertilization, single sperm will be inject directly to single oocyte for solving sperm motility problem and increasing fertilization rate.
Nowadays, Frozen Embryo Transfer or FET is suggested for IVF/ICSI treatment as providing more pregnancy rate than FRESH embryo transfer.
