How Pregnancy made possible with Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

      The dad of all infertility treatments, Artificial Insemination is in use from the late 18th century onwards. Those days the procedure was done with healthy sperm. But, the modern process involves "washed" sperms and careful placing of them in the uterus, using a procedure called intrauterine insemination, or IUI.

Goal of IUI

      The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the Fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization. It is a less invasive and less expensive option compared to In Vitro Fertilization. This is performed with partner’s sperm or donor sperm (known as donor insemination).

Why IUI ?

The most common reason for IUI are:
  • Decreased sperm mobility or a low sperm count
  • Trouble conceiving naturally (fertility issue)
  • For pregnancy without a male partner (donor sperm)
  • Disease or disorder making pregnancy chances more complicated
  • Ejaculation dysfunction treatment
  • To clear out the cervical mucus problems

How is insemination performed?

      IUI treatment procedure starts with an ovulation-stimulating medication. It is for inducing an ovulation in the women. The treatment is then done after detecting a surge in the Luteinising Hormone in the woman. The quality of the sperm extracted from the male partner is examined and the best are directly transferred into the woman’s uterus. For this, a catheter is used. This done for improving fertilization.

IVF - Helping you in your dream of a family

IVF is commonly known as In vitro fertilization. IVF is a highly used fertility treatment technique that uses nearly 99 percent of assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures. The verbatim meaning of In vitro fertilization (IVF) is “fertilization in glass” or “test tube baby”.


IVF Treatment Procedure

The process of IVF includes collection of the sperms from the male and collection of the eggs from the female ovaries at the same time. The collected sperms and eggs are then fertilized in the laboratory environment at the controlled temperature. Later, the fertilized eggs (embryos) are evaluated on the quality basis and the best embryo is implanted in the female womb to make her conceive. In Vitro Fertilization is a perfect option for infertility or genetic problems.

IVF has improved techniques, successful track record, and no risk of having cancer. It is a time consuming but provides full results and satisfaction. IVF is usually done when other treatments like fertility drugs, medication, artificial insemination and surgery fails. The rate of success completely depends on the certain factors such as maternal age, reproductive history, causes of infertility, and other lifestyle factors.

IVF is very common but somewhere it is a complicated process.  IVF have certain risk factors such as miscarriages, multiple pregnancies, or chances of infections. Women below the age of 35 years and treating with IVF have greater chances of conceiving than those beyond that age.


Risk Factor

The risk associated with IVF includes multiple pregnancies, miscarriages, premature deliveries, ectopic pregnancy, low birth weight, over stimulated ovaries, infections, and bleeding.

Infertility Treatment : Addressing the Different Concerns Infertility

Infertility can be devastating for many couples and families. However with the development in medical science and technology most cases of infertility can be treated and overcome. Infertility treatment is planned on the basis of a number of factors such as age of the couple, causes of infertility, the extent and age of the issue as well as the preferences of the patients.

Infertility due to physical irregularities can be overcome to a great extent with the help of ART or Artificial Reproduction Techniques. The instances of infertility are almost equal in men and women. Different treatment methodologies are adopted to address these irregularities. They are explained in detail here.

Treatment for Male Infertility

Medications – certain fertility drugs helps in improving the testicular function, thereby increasing the sperm count.
Lifestyle changes – modern day lifestyle is known to be one of the prime contributors to increasing instances of infertility. Altering lifestyle to a healthy pattern can help in addressing some cases of unexplained infertility.
Surgery – issues such as sperm blockage due to irregularities in the reproductive organ, which leads to infertility, can be corrected with the help of surgical procedures.


Treatment for Female Infertility

Fertility drugs – cases of infertility due to lack of ovulation can be treated with the help of ovulation stimulating fertility drugs.
IUI – IUI or Intra Uterine Insemination assists in attaining a successful fertilisation by placing healthy sperm directly into the uterine cavity.
Surgery – surgery helps in correcting reproductive system disorders like endometrial polyps and restoring fertility.

Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART)

Assisted Reproductive Techniques are highly successful treatment techniques used to treat infertility by assisting in fertilisation of egg by sperm. The popular techniques involved in ART are as follows: -
IVF – In Vitro Fertilisation is the most popular and successful ART technique which involves the fertilisation of artificially extracted egg and sperm in a laboratory setting and implantation the resulting embryo into the uterus.
ICSI – Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection involves directly injecting the sperm into egg to increase probability for successful fertilisation.
Donor eggs and sperms – eggs and sperm collected from donors are cryopreserved and used in couples unable to produce them.
Capsule Baby – the fertilisation occurs within a capsule containing extracted egg and sperm and placed within the mother’s body.

Ensuring Fertilisation with IUI Techniques

Intra Uterine Insemination, popularly called IUI is a treatment for infertility where the sperm collected from the male partner is artificially placed in the woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilisation. With a success rate ranging from about 18 % to 25 %, the method is a popular technique in ART (Artificial Reproduction Technique).

A procedure that is less invasive and less expensive than IVF, IUI aims at increasing the probability of fertilisation by artificially providing the sperm with a head start. However, the process of fertilisation occurs in the normal way unlike IVF. It just gets the advantage of having to travel less distance.

Scope of IUI

Although the Intra Uterine Insemination is popularly used in cases of decreased sperm count or mobility, they are used in other conditions as well. They are as follows: -
  • Unexplained cases of infertility
  • Ejaculation dysfunction in male
  • While using donor sperms
  • Low count of sperm in semen
  • Decreased mobility of sperm
  • Hostile cervical conditions leading to lack of fertilisation due to damage to sperm
  • Formation of scar tissues in cervix due to prior surgeries
The procedure of IUI cannot be performed in women with damaged fallopian tubes, history of pelvic infections or those affected by severe endometriosis.


IUI Procedure

The procedure of IUI involves the stimulation of ovulation, also called ovulation induction in the woman. This can be done with the help of medications or hormone therapies. The ovulation process is closely monitored and once the eggs are matured enough, IUI procedure is initiated.

The semen sample collected from the man is washed to separate the sperm. The collected sperm is then directly placed in the womb with the help of a catheter inserted into the uterine cavity through the vagina. The process helps in maximising the number of sperm cells that enters the uterus and ensures a better success rate of fertilisation.

Genesis Fertility Research Centre (GFRC) is distinguished for the efficiency and success of their treatment techniques for infertility.

Get Treatment For Infertility And Start Enjoying Your Parenthood

Although similar to ICSI, Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection or IMSI, is a much more enhanced procedure, aimed at selecting superior quality sperm for fertilisation. The IMSI procedure, an effective method to overcome male infertility, was developed for decreasing the failure rate in artificial fertilisation by selecting morphologically advanced sperms from male semen for fertilisation.

Once the sperm is selected, it is used to fertilise an egg by procedures similar to ICSI. This includes holding the egg in a pipette while the sperm is injected directly into the cytoplasm of the egg. While the sperm is magnified 200 times for detecting any defects in its morphology, IMSI procedure magnifies it to about 7000 times.

Who Can Benefit From IMSI?

Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection is best suited for the following candidates
  • Men above the age of 40 years
  • Patients who have a high count of abnormal sperm
  • Patients facing a shortage of superior quality embryos
  • Couples facing previous history of miscarriages
  • Patients with a history of failed treatment cycles

IMSI Procedure

The magnification procedures involved in IMSI involves detection of morphological defects such as chromatin compaction defects and intra nuclear sperm defects, which are hard to detect with simpler methods of ICSI. 

The procedure for IMSI involves collection of sperm and ovum from the couple during extraction techniques depending on the fertility conditions of the partners. The sperm is then analysed under a high-powered microscope and magnified to about 7000 times to detect irregularities.

A morphologically robust and good quality sperm is injected into the collected ovum through procedures similar to that of ICSI. The embryo, after fertilisation period ranging from 3 to 6 days, is implanted in the womb for conception of pregnancy.

Benefits Of IMSI

The benefits of IMSI are as follows: -
  • Ensures a high rate of successful pregnancy
  • Prevents miscarriages to a substantial extent
  • Helps in creation of superior quality embryo

With an advanced infrastructure, latest treatment options and skilled experts, GFRC (Genesis Fertility Research Centre), offers treatment for all infertility disorders.

IVF : Solution for Infertile Couples

Infertility affects both male and female due to many socio-environmental, lifestyle factors. Fertility treatments are provided to both the genders along with an Andrologist when it becomes necessary. Many modern treatments are evolved in the medical field to erase the word “Infertility” and many couples are blessed with such treatments.

IVF is potential in the cases of damaged and blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, cervical issues, and immunological, unexplained fertility cases. Here we will have a look about In vitro Fertilization (IVF) process.

In IVF procedure egg is fertilized with the sperm outside the body and the resultant embryo is cultured for 3-5 days in an incubator. When other fertility methods fail to bring pregnancy, IVF is performed. The process is involved with monitoring woman’s egg maturation, retrieving oocytes from woman’s ovaries and allowing sperm with them to fertilize in the laboratory within a fluid medium. Monitoring a woman’s natural cycle and collecting a naturally selected ovum for fertilization is called as natural cycle IVF. The resultant embryo is finally transferred into the uterus to establish a pregnancy.
Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT) are the two different procedures related to In Vitro Fertilization. Though GIFT is similar to IVF procedure, the egg and sperms are transferred to the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus and the fertilization takes place in the fallopian tubes, not in the lab. Sometimes GIFT associates surgery to transfer the egg & sperm into the tubes. In ZIFT the fertilization takes place in the laboratory and as GIFT the fertilized egg is transferred into the fallopian tubes by a laparoscopic surgical procedure.

Maaruthi Medical Centre and Hospitals (MMCH) from Erode is a multi-disciplinary hospital provides treatment for all ailments. Dr. Nirmala Sadasivam, an eminent OBG treats infertile couples with the support of various modern and international standard technologies to get them blessed with cute babies.
