Unexplained infertility, irregular cycles, uncertain ovulation and moderate impaired semen quality gives indication for treatment with insemination of semen directly to the uterine cavity.
This technique is called Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI-H). IUI-H is for use of semen from partner in contrast to IUI-D where semen from a donor is used.
In cases of severe impaired semen quality, the partner's semen can only be used by performing micro insemination (ICSI), a special technique where one single sperm cell is injected into each egg collected by use of IVF-treatment.
To achieve pregnancy by use of IUI, at least one of the tubes must be patent.
In some situations hormone treatment is administered to enhance the chance of becoming pregnant. The hormones stimulate the ovaries to mature more follicles. It is necessary for the success of the treatment, that we are in control of the ovulation, thus enabling us to perform the insemination at the right time.
