In some cases your Genea Oxford Fertility Specialist may recommend Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or Assisted Insemination (AI) as a simpler first attempt at fertility treatment or if one of these circumstances applies to you:
During an IUI cycle, we monitor your progress with blood tests and ultrasounds so that the insemination can be timed precisely - your Fertility Specialist may or may not prescribe ovarian stimulation. Close to the time of ovulation, we place the sperm directly into a woman's cervix or uterus with a soft, thin plastic tube.
IUI is not as effective as IVF in cases where there is low sperm count, or if you suffer from endometriosis. It’s also not recommended if your fallopian tubes are blocked or if the cause of your infertility is unknown.
