What is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment involving placing sperm directly into a woman's uterus during ovulation.

This can be done during the natural cycle of the female partner at the time of ovulation or in a controlled cycle using medication to stimulate the ovaries.

This procedure helps to increase the chances of fertilization and pregnancy by bypassing any potential obstacles that may prevent sperm from reaching the egg.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) in 4 Steps

The IUI treatment process at Panama Fertility involves several steps,
including ovarian stimulation, monitoring, trigger, and insemination.


Ovarian Stimulation

Before the IUI procedure, the patient may be prescribed medication to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. This increases the chances of pregnancy by increasing the number of available eggs for fertilization.



During ovarian stimulation, the patient will undergo regular monitoring to track the development of the eggs. This monitoring may include ultrasounds and blood tests to determine hormone levels.



When the eggs are mature, the patient will receive a trigger shot to induce ovulation. This injection helps to ensure that ovulation occurs at the optimal time for the IUI procedure.



The IUI procedure is a simple, painless procedure that takes only a few minutes to complete. A small catheter is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus, where the sperm is injected directly into the uterus. The sperm is washed and concentrated on increasing the chances of fertilization.
