What is IVF & IUI?
In vitro fertilization (IVF)
It is a technique that allows a couple to conceive a baby with medical assistance. It was designed for infertile couples that are incapable of conceiving on their own. In the IVF treatment process a healthy egg is removed from the woman’s ovaries and is then fertilized with the healthy male sperm in a confined space or a laboratory.
The fertilized egg or the embryo is then placed back into the woman’s womb to grow, develop as the natural process allows.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
This also a procedure developed for infertile couples that require help in conceiving a baby. It is a less costly procedure compared to IVF (In vitro fertilization) Treatment. It also follows a different, less complicated approach.
This treatment is simple and easy. The healthy and motile male sperm is collected and is placed in the woman’s uterus, with the help of medical syringe, designed for IUI.
This procedure aims to increase the number of healthy sperm that are able to reach the Fallopian tube and in due course can achieve a successful fertilization.

IUI SUCCESS RATE (ASPRM CONFERENCE 2015 )
For the average couple who undergo IUI with a post-wash total motile sperm count of at least 9 million, the chances of a clinical pregnancy with one IUI cycle using “washed sperm” was 16.9 percent. If the count was above 9 million the same chances of success were observed. In other words, it didn’t matter if the sample used for insemination had 9 million, 10 million, or 20 million moving sperm, success rates didn’t increase further.
However, for patients with sperm counts on the lower end of the spectrum, success rates steadily fell as the sperm count decreases from 9 million.
