INTRAUTERINE INSEMINATION (IUI)
Insemination (IUI-intrauterine insemination) is the process of giving sperm cells taken from the male into the woman’s uterus during the ovulation period. In order for this procedure to be applied, at least one of the patient’s tubes must be open, the number, movement and morphology of the sperm cells must be within the limits of insemination.
Who is this method recommended?
- Patients with mild to moderate sperm count and motility,
- Patients with erection and ejaculation problems,
- Presence of antibodies against sperm in women,
- Mild and moderate endometriosis patients,
- Presence of unexplained infertility.
The insemination success rate is between 10-30% for each treatment, and it is recommended to start the IVF procedure after 2-3 insemination applications. If there is little or no sperm in the semen or both of the woman’s tubes are closed, IVF treatment should be started directly.
In vitro fertilization includes the treatment process that enables fertilization to be achieved by collecting the eggs, which are female reproductive cells, and sperms, which are male reproductive cells, and brought together in a laboratory environment outside the body.
The placement of eggs in IVF is done in two ways:
- The fertilization process in the laboratory environment takes the form of leaving the sperm next to the eggs and waiting for these sperm to enter the egg and perform the fertilization process (classical IVF).
- Under the microscope, fertilization is achieved (microinjection-ICSI) by injecting the sperm directly into the egg with the help of a pipette
