Insemination Procedures for Infertility

An insemination procedure uses a thin, flexible tube (catheter) to put sperm into the woman's reproductive tract. For some couples with infertility problems, insemination can improve the chances of pregnancy.

Donor sperm are used if the male partner is sterile, has an extremely low sperm count, or carries a risk of genetic disease. A woman planning to conceive without a male partner can also use donor sperm.

Prior to insemination, the sperm usually are washed and concentrated (placing unwashed sperm directly into the uterus can cause severe cramps). Concentration is accomplished by selectively choosing highly active, healthy sperm that are more capable of fertilizing an egg.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is the placing of sperm into a woman's uterus when she is ovulating. This is achieved with a thin flexible tube (catheter) that is passed into the vagina, through the cervix, and into the uterus.

IUI can use sperm from the male partner or a donor. It is often combined with superovulation medicine to increase the number of available eggs.

Why It Is Done
Intrauterine insemination or artificial insemination may be done if:
• Tests have shown no cause for a couple's infertility (unexplained infertility).
• A man releases semen and sperm into the urinary bladder instead of out the penis (retrograde ejaculation). Sperm are collected, washed, and used for insemination.
• A man's sperm are absent, low in quantity, or poor in quality. In this case, your doctor may recommend that you try ICSI. ICSI stands for intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
• There is a problem with a woman's cervix, as from prior surgery, that prevents sperm from traveling through it.

  • My name is Ravi and I got married in 2010, after trying for a long time we were hopeless and harassed. We did the best that we could and consult the best gynaecologists in our home town "Saharanpur" but could not succeed. One day one of our friend told me about Dr. Geeta Jain Clinic Aastha Ivf Centre and after all the investigations we consult her. After the endless effort of Dr.Geeta and her team finally we got the good news and blessed with a baby girl. We cannot even thanks them in words for their help and moral support in our tough time. May God bless them.
