The IUI Process with CCRM Fertility of Minneapolis, MN

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a common fertility treatment option that involves placing washed sperm directly into the uterus to increase the chances of fertilization. At CCRM Fertility in Minneapolis, we offer state-of-the-art IUI treatments & compassionate expertise that are both customized to meet the individual needs of our patients.

While IUI continues to be the gold standard of infertility treatment in the medical community, at CCRM Fertility of Minneapolis, we understand that every patient is unique. That’s why we begin the IUI process with a comprehensive evaluation of both partners, including a thorough medical history, physical examination, and laboratory testing. Our experienced team of reproductive specialists will then collaborate with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and goals.

Before beginning IUI treatment, patients may undergo ovulation induction to stimulate the ovaries and increase the chances of successful fertilization. This may include taking oral medications or receiving injectable hormones, depending on your individual needs.

Once the ovaries are stimulated, we will monitor your cycle closely using ultrasound imaging and hormone testing. When the follicles have reached the appropriate size, we will administer a trigger shot of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to trigger ovulation.

Approximately 24-36 hours after receiving the hCG shot, you will return to our clinic for the IUI procedure. During the procedure, we will insert a thin catheter through the cervix and into the uterus, where washed sperm will be injected directly into the uterus. The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes, and patients can return to normal activities immediately afterward.

Who are Ideal Candidates for Intrauterine Insemination?

Ideal candidates for intrauterine insemination include:

  • Couples who have been trying to conceive for at least six months without success
  • Couples using donor sperm or same-sex couples who wish to conceive
  • Couples experiencing male infertility, such as low sperm count or decreased sperm motility
  • Women who have ovulation problems, hormonal imbalances, or other fertility issues, for whom IUI may be recommended as a first-line treatment option.
