Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is sometimes used to boost the chances of conception and fertilization inside the womb of the mother itself. During IUI, fast- moving and highly motile sperms are injected into the womb of the mother, to make sure that an increased sperm count is able to reach the Fallopian tube, the actual location where fertilization takes place.
Before IUI, slow and sluggish sperms are fist separated from the faster ones. The second lot is then used for insemination. Before inserting the sperms, they are first washed with a neutral solution to wash away all the potentially toxic material that the body of the mother may react to.
Next, a catheter with a needle containing the best sperms in inserted through the cervix of the mother. The sperms are released into the uterus, which then travel up the Fallopian tube to seek an egg for fertilization.
Infertility treatment through IUI is a common procedure performed across all major hospitals and infertility centres. There is just 20 percent chance that a sperm would fertilize an egg as a part of IUI treatment.
