Safe and painless infertility treatment

Insemination

Infertility treatment does not have to involve high costs. Thousands of couples around the world have become parents thanks to insemination, a method of assisted reproduction that is painless and completely safe. Find out how the insemination procedure works and who can use it.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a safe and painless procedure involving the placement in the uterus of a sample of semen that has been previously selected and properly prepared in laboratory conditions. Semen is administered through a thin silicone catheter.

The insemination procedure is aimed at married and heterosexual couples living in informal relationships. Sperm provided by a donor can also be used for insemination.

For whom?

The intrauterine insemination procedure can be used by the couples who:

  • despite good fertility results and long efforts to become pregnant remain childless;
  • experience idiopathic infertility;
  • have at their disposal semen that is slightly beyond the standard (insufficiently motile and with low number of sperm cells);
  • experience ejaculation disorders (the male patient) or have been diagnosed with endometriosis (in the 1st or 2nd degree) or with anti-sperm antibodies (female patient).

Effectiveness of insemination

The insemination procedure can be repeated many times - until it is effective- but usually no more than six attempts are made in consecutive monthly cycles. Depending on the patient’s age, the quality of semen used for fertilization and the number of mature follicles after hormone stimulation, the effectiveness of treatment with intrauterine insemination is from 10 to 25% per cycle.

Qualification for the insemination procedure is based on the results of previous tests. Treatment can be based on the patient's natural menstrual cycle or monitoring of her cycle and hormone stimulation. A couple who will use donor semen and are in an informal relationship must make a statement at the Registry Office (first the man confirms that he will be the father of the child, then the partner has three months to confirm this). The insemination will not take place without a man’s signature on the document.
Before the insemination procedure, the patient undergoes a gynaecological examination, cervical swab, cytology and Sono-HSG examination assessing the patency of the fallopian tubes. At this stage, the course of the menstrual cycle should be observed in order to be able to determine the day on which ovulation takes place.
During cycle monitoring it may be necessary to take drugs stimulating the functioning of the ovaries. The properly performed stimulation increases the chances of success of the procedure.
During the procedure the patient adopts a lying down position, then the doctor inserts a thin catheter with a diameter of 1.5 mm into the uterus and injects sperm-containing fluid through the catheter (only 1 ml of fluid enters the uterus). Direct application of sperm cells to a woman's reproductive organ allows to shorten the distance that sperm cells have to cover in order to reach the egg. Thanks to that less motile sperm cells have a chance to fertilize. After the insemination the patient rests, lying down for 5-15 minutes, after which she can go home.
The patient should not strain herself, rest a lot and avoid physical effort. She must not take hot baths.
