Your checklist for an Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

If you are researching different Fertility Treatments and you want to get an idea of which treatment best suits your personal situation, the best thing to do is to get the opinion of an Assisted Reproduction (AR) professional who will go through your case and guide you through all of the possibilities. The professionals recommend attending an AR centre when you have been trying to get pregnant for between 6 months and one year.

Artificial Insemination is the simplest and most suitable treatment in particular cases:

  • If you are younger than 37 and all of the fertility tests that you have done have given normal results, AI may be the best option.
  • If you have issues with the quality of your cervical mucus, any kind of ovulation disorder, mild endometriosis, or any problem with the Fallopian tubes that does not result in a complete blockage, it may also be the most suitable option.
  • If there is simply a slight issue with the quality, motility or morphology of your partner’s semen.
  • If you do not have a male partner, whether that is because you have a homosexual partner or because you want to get pregnant by yourself. This technique is particularly suitable for these cases, in patients under 37 years of age.

Before beginning this treatment, you will need to undergo several medical tests to confirm that this really is the most suitable treatment for you at this time.
