How to decide when to go for IUI treatment
IUI Treatment, also known as Artificial Insemination is a process through which sperm gets introduced to the cervix or uterus through a manual process for the cause of obtaining pregnancy, without having the couple go through sexual intercourse.
The IUI treatment is basically for the ones who face infertility issues. The idea of this entire process is that the male’s sperm is collected and frozen before the ovulation period. So, even if the partner is not there, medical experts can perform the IUI treatment and allow the female host to achieve pregnancy without having to miss out on her periods.
Now, a basic question that rests in the minds of women or couples in general who face fertility issues is that whether IUI tests can be done with fertility drugs or not. Experts in the field prefer the usage of fertility drugs along with IUI for favorable outcomes, even if the semen tests are positive.
What does drug therapy do?
It merely acts as a supplement that encourages the development of a mature egg. Women who can’t or fail to ovulate normally goes through this treatment called ‘ovulation induction’. The process allows the development of several follicles in the body, which furthermore result in the successive release of many eggs during regular menstrual cycles.
The overall objective of applying drug therapy with IUI is to develop at least three follicles, perfectly mature without any genetic problems. In other words, it fixes the ovulation process and ensures that healthy eggs are being produced by the host.
Under a normal menstrual cycle, it would often seem that the IUI process works fine without fertility drugs, but experts still recommend the use of such drugs in combination with the IUI treatment as it benefits the induction of the superovulation process.
When do you need such a treatment?
Firstly, if you’re experiencing infertility issues, even at a relatively old age, supposedly 40, you are the one who can approach fertility experts regarding such treatments.
Secondly, it is important to look out for male-factor infertility symptoms. One’s suffering from tubal or genital diseases shouldn’t directly go for such treatments as well.
Endometriosis or pelvic adhesions are not appropriate records for applicants who wish to go through IUI treatments protocols. An important thing to note is that couples suffering from male-infertility problems can got through the treatment process, however the success of the treatment cannot be guaranteed. The vagueness often leads to failure in such cases.
If you have a hectic day’s schedule, or perhaps a life where your partner spends most of his time/days elsewhere, in other places then such treatment procedures are feasible during the time of ovulation.
Let us now conclude
These are artificial steps that can potentially impregnate a woman. It certainly is a medical milestone for the couples who face infertility issues. It especially opens a door to parenthood for the ones who are physically vulnerable towards reproduction, perhaps due to age or even hormonal loss.
So, if you’re skeptical about when/how to undergo such a treatment it is best to consult your own self first. Go through medical reports, understand everything and most importantly understand your partner as well. Moreover, probable failure in such processes is no big issue as it provides a better insight for specialists to develop the same patient’s IVF protocol, a process that has helped many wishful couples.
