IUI Treatment Pune
IUI (Intrauterine Insemination)
IUI is a procedure by which the best lot of specially prepared sperm is directly injected inside the uterus at the expected time of ovulation. This increases the chances of fertilisation, thereby resulting in higher chances of conception. In IUI, the sperm bypasses the cervical barrier and is placed very close to the fallopian tube.
Usually the semen sample is collected through ejaculation into a sterile collection cup. The collected sample is then sent to the lab for processing. A time gap of 30 minutes to 2 hours is maintained between when the semen sample is sent for washing and when it is inseminated by our best IUI doctor in Pune. IUI is performed soon after processing of the sperm is completed. The woman undergoing IUI needs to have a full bladder for the procedure.
Best timing for an IUI
The IUI procedure must take place when an egg or eggs are present, that is, during a woman’s fertile period. The best timing for IUI would be about 36 hours after an hCG injection is administered to stimulate ovulation. The timing of IUI may even be based on a natural LH surge which triggers ovulation. In such case, IUI is scheduled between 24 to 36 hours. This is because the egg does not survive for much longer than 24 hours after it is released, unless it is fertilised.
Post IUI Care
Most women do not require special post IUI care but if you suffer cramps or feel uneasy after IUI, it makes sense to take it easy for a while. Some people reduce their aerobic activity and avoid lifting weights during this stage to increase chances of implantation. A pregnancy test is conducted 15 days after the IUI is performed and is evaluated by our best IUI doctors in Pune. Maintaining a positive frame of mind will really help you during this time.
