How common is Infertility problem?
What is IUI?
IUI, or Intra Uterine Insemination, is a procedure on which sperm placed directly into a woman’s uterus. During normal intercourse, only a small percentage of a man’s sperm will make it pass the woman’s cervix and enter the uterus to fertilize the woman’s egg. Most of the sperm that is ejaculated during intercourse remains in the vagina. A small percentage of the ejaculated sperm will travel, with the help of the woman’s cervical mucus, through the vagina and into the cervical canal where it is released gradually into the uterus. But, this amount is only a fraction of the total amount of sperm ejaculated. IUI increases a couple’s chance of conceiving because it removes any obstacles that could keep sperm from entering the uterus, such as hostile cervical mucus or antisperm antibodies. It also places the sperm closer to the egg. Moreover, it improves the odds of conception by simply putting more sperm into the uterus than would be possible through normal intercourse. Logically, the more sperm that is in the uterus during ovulation, the higher the chances are of conceiving.
