IUI or Intrauterine insemination is a process or procedure through which a woman’s eggs are made to meet the sperm. This procedure is used in those cases where women are not able to conceive.
In this procedure, a male’s sperm is processed in such a way that it can be separated from the semen from the prostaglandins.
While IUI has proved effective and beneficial for many, it may not always be successful. But there are certain ways through which you can improve the success rate of this procedure. The following are some tips and suggestions to improve IUI Success rate:
1. The first tip to improve your chances of a successful IUI is to consult your physician and ask him/her about taking fertility medications. By taking any such medicine, one can improve chances of super ovulation. Super ovulation is a process in which more eggs than usual are produced. The more the number of eggs, the more is the possibility of conception.
2. Before the IUI procedure, you can request your partner to abstain from ejaculation or sexual intercourse for about 3 days before the scheduled IUI process. When a male abstains from sexual activities, the sperm count at the time of IUI can dramatically improve or increase, leading to better chances of successful IUI.
3. Another important tip that can help you to improve the success rate of the IUI procedure is to time the IUI procedure wisely. You must always consult your physician or doctor so that he/she can suggest a certain treatment program or plan which helps you in being inseminated at the time of ovulation or just before ovulation. What this does is that it ensures that the sperm stays alive for the next few days in the reproductive tract, thereby improving your chances of conception.
4. Another tip that you can follow or observe to raise the IUI success rate is to engage in sexual intercourse either on the day of the IUI procedure or about 3 days after the procedure is conducted. Sex is a great way to increase the possibility of fertilization of the egg. But if you have experienced bleeding during the process, then you must wait for atleast 2 days before you engage in sex with your partner.
Following one or all of these tips can prove very useful and will raise chances of conception after IUI.
