Infertility Treatments: Basic
Ovulation Induction / IUI Treatment
Ovulation induction is carefully monitored by your physician and is often coupled with timed intercourse or IUI.
HOW IUI WORKS IN FERTILITY
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is generally coupled with ovulation-inducing fertility drugs. The effectiveness of the medication(s) is monitored by transvaginal ultrasound allowing the physician to check the endometrial lining and follicular development.
When the doctor feels that the thickness of the endometrial lining and follicles have developed correctly, the patient will be given an injection of hCG to stimulate ovulation. A semen sample is collected and concentrated or “washed”. It is placed into a small volume of media that is then placed into the uterus at the desired time prior to ovulation.
