IUI is the first step towards fertility treatment after OI (ovarian Induction). This procedure is cost effective and increases the chances of pregnancy by 18-20%. The procedure starts with ovarian induction or stimulation of ovary; medications are given for development of one or more mature follicles in a woman’s ovaries. Then the follicles and endometrium are monitored by ultrasound scan and if required doctor might give gonadotropins injections to those whose egg are not growing. It is followed by an HCG injection to induce ovulation, the final maturation of the egg and loosening of the egg from the follicle wall. After 34-36 hours the male partners semen sample is collected and washed in which sperm is separated from the other components of the semen. Through a speculum the washed specimen of highly motile sperm is placed higher in the uterine cavity using a sterile, flexible catheter.
The right time to visit for OI with TI is the second day of the menstrual cycle.

Initial Consultation with Renova Fertility Specialist
- Medications are given for development of one or more mature follicles in a woman’s ovaries.
- Pelvic ultrasound scans are used to access the endometrium (lining of the womb) and to determine how the follicles are developing.
- Ovulation induction cycles are followed by a HCG Injection to induce ovulation, the final maturation of the egg and loosening of the egg from the follicle wall.
- It is done after 34-36 hours of HCG injection. Scan is done to confirm that follicle has ruptured. The male partner is advised to give semen sample which is specially washed in media and placed directly in uterus via a thin catheter. This is done to facilitate sperms to reach the Fallopian tubes and increase the chances of fertilization.
