It is carried out either by using Husband’s Semen ( A.I.H ) or donor semen ( AID ).
The I.U.I Lab is managed by experts, who are well versed with the semen processing procedures like semen wash, swim-up, swim-down & density gradient separation ( single or double layer ). These procedures remove the seminal plasma containing prostagalandins as well as debris, dead sperms, immobile sperms, pus cells & epithelial cells from the semen. This improves the chances of fertilization.
The wife is given medications to produce large number of mature eggs, as compared to her natural cycle, where she produces only one egg.
The Processed semen is transferred into the uterus (womb ) with the help of a fine catheter, thereby bringing the sperm & eggs in close proximity in the female gential tract, hence increasing the probability of conception.
Conception rate by this method is 15% to 20% per cycle. 3-6 cycles areadvocated before procedding to higher ART forms.
