IUI (Intrauterine insemination with the partner’s sperm)

Intrauterine insemination with the partner’s sperm (IUI) is the least invasive assisted reproduction technique: it involves a light pharmacological stimulation of follicular growth in order to induce ovulation. The aim is to bring 2 or 3 follicles to full maturity in order to increase the chances that at least one of them is fertilized.

Monitoring of follicular growth allows the synchronization of insemination with ovulation, thus increasing the potential for achieving pregnancy. In this process, the preparation of the man's sperm is fundamental: following deposit by the partner, the biologists at ProCrea’s andrology laboratory analyze the sperm, identifying those that are most mobile, with the greatest capacity for reproduction and prepare them for fertilization.


IAD (Intrauterine insemination with a donor’s sperm)

It involves a light pharmacological stimulation of follicular growth in order to induce ovulation.

On the day of the intrauterine insemination, the donor’s sperm is prepared in the laboratory and injected in the uterus through a thin catheter, through a pain-free procedure that does not require anesthesia. The fertilization of the egg occurs naturally. The success of this technique depends on the duration of infertility, age of the patient, the quality of the seminal fluid and the type of stimulation used.

IN DETAIL

1 HORMONAL STIMULATION
By means of a daily, subcutaneous administration of hormones, the ovaries are stimulated to produce follicles. The stimulation is monitored by ProCrea specialists, as well as by the patient’s gynecologist.

2 PREPARATION OF THE SPERM
The sperm that are most mobile and with the greatest chances of fertilizing the egg are selected.

3 INTRAUTERINE INSEMINATION
On the day of ovulation, the selected sperms are inserted into the uterus using a fine catheter through a small pain-free procedure, directly in the clinic.

HOW
The actual insemination is performed with a fine catheter with which, through the neck of the uterus, the seminal fluid is deposited in the uterine cavity. The procedure is pain-free.

WHEN
Monitoring of follicular growth allows us to identify the best time for intrauterine insemination in order to increase the chances of pregnancy.

COSTS
The treatment costs vary, depending on the stages necessary to achieve optimal conditions for procreation. The success rates with this method are influenced by the causes of infertility, age, the quality of the seminal fluid and the type of stimulation used. Reference is made to the Fee Section.
