I am using frrpil kit according to doctor suggestion today is my day 14, in scanning report came as one egg ruptured and another egg size is 19mm what does the meaning ? please advice
Intrauterine insemination (iui) is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperms inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of iui is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.
Iui provides the sperm an advantage by giving it a head start, but still requires a sperm to reach and fertilize the egg on its own. It is a less invasive and less expensive option compared to ivf
Iui may be selected as a fertility treatment for any of the following conditions as well:
1) unexplained infertility
2) some ovulatory abnormalities – irregular menstrual cycles, pcos
3) absence of or minimal endometriosis (mild or stage i-ii endometriosis)
4) a hostile cervical condition, including cervical mucus problem
5) ejaculation dysfunction etc
6) complete absence of sperm in the male (azoospermia) requiring donor sperm iui
Artificial insemination/iui is not recommended as an effective treatment for couples with:
1) tubal blockage or severe tubal damage
2) diminished ovarian reserve (high fsh) or ovarian failure (menopause)
3) severe male factor infertility
4) advanced stages of endometriosis
5) advanced female age (>40 years old) – more aggressive treatment with ivf or donor egg ivf is recommended for these patients
Steps in iui
* induction of ovulation using oral medicines or injections when needed
* serial monitoring by follicle scans and blood tests
*trigger for ovulation
* iui procedure- which includes semen processing in lab followed by insertion of the processed semen in the uterus
* luteal phase support when required
Success of iui depends on many factors including couple age, indication of iui, amh and quality of egg, semen parameters, semen wash technique, iui technique, lab conditions etc. Roughly the success rate varies from 15-25 % in a good set up
Hii sir. I have pcod and I have missed my period. I didn't get my period since January. My date of period was 12 the Jan. But the period had not come yet. My last date was 12 the DEC. The prob is that I had an unprotected sex on 19 the Jan. Is it possible that I might be pregnant. Plzz answer as soon as possible.
IUI Treatment: IUI is a procedure in which a sperm sample is processed and then inserted directly into a woman’s uterus. The “washing” technique is used to remove dead and slow sperm as this creates a concentration of high-motility sperm, which increases the chances of conception. The washing process takes between 30 minutes to 2 hours and as soon as the sperm sample is ready, it is introduced into the uterus through the cervix using a thin flexible catheter. With the IUI method, good quality sperm is deposited close to the egg which increases the chances of the sperm reaching and fertilizing the egg. Doctors often prescribe fertility drugs in conjunction with IUI, so that the woman develops multiple eggs as this increases the chances of conception.
IVF Treatment: In an IVF procedure, medication is used to stimulate the woman’s ovaries so that they produce multiple eggs at one time. The eggs are then removed and fertilized in the laboratory using the husband’s (or donor’s) sperm. The fertilized eggs are then cultured in the IVF laboratory for 3-5 days until they form embryos (the cells of the egg start to divide and multiply). The resulting embryos are then transferred to the woman’s uterus. The transfer is considered to be effective once one of these embryos implants in the lining of the uterus. Implantation takes place between 1 and 5 days after the transfer which means that if the IVF procedure has been successful, you would have a positive pregnancy test result in as little as 10 days from the day of embryo transfer.
