Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), also known as Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), is a standard fertility procedure. It aids in the transfer of sperm from the vagina to the fallopian tubes by overcoming natural barriers.
The IUI procedure involves introducing sperms into the uterus, where they will continue their path toward the egg cells and fertilize them to achieve pregnancy.
What is the IUI treatment cost in Mumbai?
The IUI treatment in Mumbai is one of the common and least costly fertility treatments compared to IVF, ICSI, and IMSI. IUI is a less invasive and less expensive alternative to IVF. As a result, it is also the preferred choice for single women and lesbians who choose to get pregnant using donor sperm.
The cost of IUI treatment in Mumbai differs from patient to patient based on several factors. To know the approximate cost of the fertility treatment.
The following are the steps involved in IUI treatment:
1. Stimulation of Egg Formation:
To promote the growth and development of eggs, the fertility specialist will administer oral or injectable drugs to the female patient. These injections are given in the areas of the stomach or the upper part of the thigh.
Depending on how the ovaries respond, the patient will need to take oral medicine for five days and injectables for eight to twelve days.
2. Ultrasound monitoring and Blood testing:
When taking injectable drugs, the patient can need ultrasound monitoring every two or three days to check the ovaries and egg growth.
Blood testing helps to track hormone levels linked to egg development and ovarian function. The fertility experts ensure that everything is running well through this checking and tracking.
3. Ovulation induction:
The doctor administers injectable (trigger-shot) to the patient. It causes ovulation in around 36 hours. The shot may be provided by a nurse at the clinic or self-administered at home.
4. Sperm Preparation:
A sperm sample from the male partner is provided, or a donor sperm sample is thawed and treated in the lab. The technician will wash the sperm sample and remove immobile sperm and waste materials in the semen during preparation. We will get a high-quality sperm sample at the end.
5. Insemination Procedure:
A woman lies on a check-up platform, precisely as she does with a routine pelvic exam. The fertility specialist would use a small, long, adjustable catheter to insert the sperm sample into the uterus. The entire procedure is painless and takes only a few minutes.
6. Pregnancy Testing:
Follow-up blood tests or a urinary pregnancy test kit can evaluate pregnancy within two weeks of insemination.

Who should consider IUI treatment?
IUI treatment is a good option in the following cases:
Men with low sperm count or sperm motility may use IUI to give their sperm a head start by injecting it directly into the fallopian tube.Women with extreme cervical mucus hostility can benefit from the IUI treatment. This condition affects sperm survival before it attaches to the egg.
IUI is best for women who have a high-quality egg supply and stable fallopian tubes. We may obtain high-quality sperm samples from a donor or a male partner. Patients who have trouble with vaginal intercourse due to physical difficulty or psychosexual issues can benefit from IUI.
IUI is helpful in cases where donor sperm is needed due to severe male infertility or lack of sperm in the husband. Experts also recommend IUI in cases of cervical infections and endometriosis in the female partner.

The success rate of IUI treatment is approximately 15% to 20%. However, the success rate is influenced by a variety of factors outside the doctors’ control. However, compared to IVF, the efficacy rates of IUI are lower.
IVF is the process of fertilizing an ovum and sperm outside of the uterus in a laboratory. The resulting embryos are first implanted into the uterus by the infertility doctor. However, in IUI, fertilization occurs after the sperm is injected directly into the uterus.
The sperm does not come out once it is injected into the uterus. Wetness may occur after the IUI process, but this is due to the catheter loosening the cervical mucus.
Often, IUI fertilization will occur in a day or two after the procedure. Sperm can last for up to seven days within the female reproductive tract. If ovulation is delayed, sperm could fertilize the egg up to seven days later.
IUI is much less effective than IVF, and couples may need numerous rounds before conceiving, bringing the total cost closer to half that of IVF.
This procedure has an extremely low risk of any other medical issues or congenital impairments. As a result, IUI is risk-free. In most cases, there are no severe complications associated with IUI. However, specific problems may develop.
