IUI Success Tips

IUI is mainly used when timed intercourse or hormonal medications alone have not worked, or if there are ‘mild’ sperm abnormalities, such as poor motility (i.e. the ability of the sperm to move). It is also used in conjunction with donor sperm by same sex female couples or by women who don’t have a partner.

In addition, IUI can be used to overcome fertility due to the following conditions:

  • Mild Endometriosis

    occurs when the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus grows in other places where it doesn’t belong, such as on the ovaries and fallopian tubes.

  • Mucus ‘Hostility’

    may arise as a result of a vaginal infection or the presence of antisperm antibodies in the mucus

  • Ovulation Problems

    including irregular or absent ovulation often caused by a deficiency in one of the controlling hormones.

  • Low Sperm Count

    if sperm count is only a little low, it can still be used because of the way it will be treated in the laboratory.

  • Ejaculation problems

    due to psychological problems such as impotence (inability to get and maintain an erection), or anatomic problems of the penis, such as paraplegia.

  • Retrograde Ejaculation

    the semen goes backward into the bladder instead of coming out of the penis.

  • Unexplained Infertility

    defined as not being able to conceive after one year, even though the cycle is normal, semen is normal, internal examinations are normal and there is normal sperm-mucus penetration. In about 10-15% of couples, a cause for infertility may not be found even after thorough investigation of both partners.

  • Physical Problems with Sexual Intercourse

    vaginismus is an involuntary clamping of the vaginal muscles, which may prevent some women from having frequent intercourse.

Avoid IUI is when there is:

  • A blocked or damaged fallopian tube.
  • Ovarian failure (menopause).
  • Severe male factor infertility, i.e. no sperm, very low sperm count, poor sperm motility (movement), sperm defects; in this case, donor sperm may be an option.
  • Severe endometriosis.
  • A female partner over the age of 40.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) can be a useful form of advanced reproductive treatment.  For individuals with good ovarian reserve and only minor male factor infertility or cervical factor, IUI can often be an excellent and valuable treatment option.  However, when multiple factors are present, success with IUI is significantly reduced.  Below are cumulative probabilities of success with IUI based solely on age.
