Quality of the Specimen
The success of an IUI treatment widely depends upon the quality of specimen. Generally, after processing the semen sample the number of motile sperm should be 5 million at least for an IUI treatment to be successful.
Mode of Insemination
Insemination takes place at the IVF clinic where the doctor shall attach the sample of healthy sperm to the end of a flexible tube i.e., catheter. The catheter is injected into the uterus through cervical opening where the sperm sample is pushed through the tube into the uterus after which the catheter is removed.
Timing of Insemination
Monitoring the signs of ovulation are essential as timing plays a crucial role in Intrauterine Insemination. The reason behind it is that timing of insemination relative to ovulation is the key to successful IUI treatment. Most IUI treatments are done one or two days after ovulation is detected. It’s important to understand that not every female needs to undergo such investigations to reach the diagnosis of infertility.
