What is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?
IUI is a fertility treatment that can be completed right here at our office in Chicago, IL. During the procedure, ejaculated sperm is inserted into the uterus using a small catheter in the hopes that the result will be fertilization of the egg. In order to be successful, IUI can be timed with a woman’s natural ovulation schedule or can be combined with fertility pills or injections.
What Is In Vitro Fertilization?
Unlike intrauterine insemination, where fertilization occurs in the uterus, in vitro fertilization (IVF) occurs in a lab. The process begins with the retrieval of an unfertilized egg, which is then fertilized with donor sperm. Once fertilized, the egg, now an embryo, is then placed in the uterus where it will develop and grow as any other embryo would. The team at Reproductive Medicine Institute has many years of experience completing this procedure, ensuring you get the best chance of success.
Is IUI Suitable for All Patients?
IUI can be an effective fertility treatment in many cases. Couples who are experiencing unexplained infertility, cervical scarring, or sexual or ejaculatory dysfunction can all find success with IUI treatments. In addition, single women looking to start a family as well as same-sex female couples often use IUI treatments to begin their family with a sperm donor.
Who Makes the Best Candidate for IFV?
Choosing the best fertility treatment for you depends largely on your lifestyle and current family situation. The team at Reproductive Medicine Institute will evaluate your case and help you determine which treatment option best fits your needs. Generally speaking, IVF is an option for families with a history of miscarriages, single parents, women who are older, or couples experiencing unexplained fertility. However, there are also many other reasons to choose IVF. If you’re considering any sort of fertility treatment, our team is here to help you choose the right option.
