IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) Procedure
IUI procedure is relatively effective for several infertile patients to help improve conception chances. Being a simple and effective infertility treatment, it increases the success rate in several cases. IUI treatment in Ludhiana requires inserting the male sperm into the female reproductive tract into the uterus to help achieve ovulation.
Let’s clear the basics about IUI Treatment
When you visit one of the best Test Tube baby centre in Ludhiana, it helps you to stay informed about the entire process. The IUI cycle starts when you get the menses and ends after the blood pregnancy test. Then you will get the blood test on the 2nd or 3rd day of the menses to help check whether you have conceived or not. Moreover, the doctor will perform a transvaginal ultrasound to help properly check the uterine lining and ovarian follicles. The doctor will do an ultrasound to check whether the uterine lining is thick and whether the follicles are growing the right way.
Once it’s seen that follicles are growing in the ultrasound, it makes things much better and more effective. Additionally, the doctor suggests you take a gonadotropin trigger shot which helps to induce ovulation and helps to begin with IUI. The doctor suggests IUI once it has reached the peak stage, making everything much more manageable.
For frozen donor sperm, the sperm sample gets thawed on the day of treatment. The doctor inserts a speculum into the vagina and a thin tube to ensure sperm reaches the womb. In total, the procedure takes 5 minutes. After seven days, the doctor will monitor your progesterone level to see if the ovulation has occurred or not. The doctor performs a pregnancy test after 14 days.
