Infertility – today, this diagnosis scares about 15% of couples around the world who dream of giving birth to a baby. However, as the positive experience of modern reproductive medicine shows, this diagnosis can be overcome, in particular, thanks to the possibilities of the artificial insemination procedure.
Intrauterine insemination in Odessa allows a woman to become a mother who, for various reasons, wants to raise a child herself, such an assisted reproductive method makes it possible for a couple to be parents when there is no possibility of a natural way of conception.
What is IUI
Intrauterine insemination or IUI – a method that in its essence is closest to natural conception than other methods of artificial insemination, is used both in the case of female infertility and male infertility.
During ovulation, under close supervision with the help of ultrasound, prepared sperm (husband or donor) at a certain point when using a catheter is placed in the uterine cavity, after which the expectant mother should be in a horizontal position for about 20 minutes and then, in the usual rhythm of life, expect a natural onset pregnancy.
As a rule, the method of artificial insemination is prescribed for women under the age of 35. The attractive sides of IUI in Odessa are: low price, simplicity of the method and painlessness of the procedures.
Of course, as in the case of natural conception, the chances of pregnancy in the case of intrauterine insemination are not very high, therefore, in some situations, stimulation of superovulation is recommended, which increases the chances of pregnancy, due to the presence of several eggs in the female body, ready to receive genetic male material.
When there is a need for IUI
After passing all the necessary tests and making a diagnosis, the reproductive physician may recommend an artificial insemination procedure in such situations:
- for problems of the male reproductive sphere: oligospermia (a small amount of sperm in the ejaculate), asthenospermia (decreased sperm activity). Considering each case individually, the doctor suggests using either the sperm of the husband / partner or a donor;
- with cervical disorders in the female reproductive system, when even the most active sperm are unable to penetrate through a hostile environment (cervical mucus) into the uterine cavity;
- in the presence of scars on the cervix, which interfere with the penetration of spermatozoa into the interior;
- for violations in the sexual sphere in a couple: vaginismus in women, erectile dysfunction in men, etc.;
- with unexplained reasons of infertility after examination;
Also, artificial insemination in Odessa can be used by women who want to conceive a child without a male sexual partner, in this case, donor biomaterial is taken.
Fertility doctors give their recommendations to women who have unsuccessfully undergone intrauterine insemination procedures in Odessa more than 3-4 times, to consider other methods of artificial insemination that can help get pregnant.
The cost of the procedure
Talking about the need for intrauterine insemination, one cannot ignore the issue of cost and what it consists of. Despite the fact that artificial insemination is much cheaper than other methods, preparation for it should be no less responsible and thorough.
In addition to the price for the procedure itself, partners must first undergo an examination to make sure there are no contraindications, diseases, infections, and also to make sure that the female body is ready for conception and bearing a fetus. Also, the final price may be influenced by such factors: whether the IUI will be produced in the woman’s natural cycle or will stimulation of superovulation be required; whether the husband’s sperm will be used or donor material is needed.
