The procedure can be performed using a spouse or donor sperm. The females are examined for hormonal imbalance and infections before getting the treatment.
The male sperm is collected into a sterile glass or plastic cup provided by the laboratory. The Electroejaculation method is also used for males who have a difficult time with ejaculation. The collected sperm is washed to concentrate the sperm, and the seminal fluid is also removed. The IUI procedure is performed when the female is ovulating. During the process, the woman lies on an examination table, and a narrow tube is inserted through the female cervix into the uterus, and the washed semen is slowly injected. The process is painless but may cause mild cramps.
In the sperm washing process, the swimming sperms are separated from non-swimming sperm, and the swimming sperm is placed in the female uterus and close to the fallopian tubes at the time of ovulation.
This method aims to improve the likelihood of fertilization by increasing sperm reaching the fallopian tube. It is a cost-effective and minimally invasive option to attain fertility.
