IUI (Intra Uterine Insemination-IUI)

Couples who cannot conceive despite having regular unprotected sexual intercourse for one year should be examined.

If the age and egg reserves are normal, first of all, drugs to increase ovulation (Clomiphene and Letrozole) and the planned sexual intercourse method are tried. If pregnancy has not been achieved with this treatment for at least three months, Interuterine Insemination can be performed in the second stage. If the right patient is selected in this method, the chance of success increases.

IUI procedure should not be performed before confirming that the tubes are open with HSG ultrasound film. It is not preferred in couples with a capacity of less than 5 million motile sperms and serious sperm malformations.

Ovulation in the ovaries is stimulated by using low doses of drugs called gonadotropin, which are used in in vitro fertilization, in injection form. In ultrasonography, if the number of growing eggs are seen three or more, the procedure should be canceled due to the risk of multiple pregnancy or the process continues with IVF treatment. 

In the last stage of insemination, after ovulation occurs, the sperms are prepared and sent to the uterus via very thin and painless catheters placed in the uterus.
