Kort hier asb n overview van AI/IUI
If you are considering the IUI route, a comprehensive consultation with your fertility specialist is recommended, as it is important to first identify the possible cause(s) of infertility. The male partner will also be advised to have a sperm test done. Thereafter, the fertility doctor will discuss your treatment plan with you in detail. Our fertility sister will also discuss the stimulation medication with you.
An IUI treatment cycle includes a few sonar scans with your fertility specialist and specific blood tests may be needed. This is necessary to monitor the growth of the follicles (containing the eggs) and to determine your day of ovulation. The insemination day will then be scheduled accordingly.
On the day of the insemination, the male partner should provide the laboratory with his semen sample. Three days of abstinence is preferred. The semen is prepared in the laboratory to allow for an optimal sperm sample with optimised sperm parameters (i.e. concentration and motility) that ultimately will optimise fertilising potential.
The female partner will undergo the insemination of the prepared sperm sample at the doctor’s rooms. The AI procedure is similar to a routine gynaecological examination for a Pap smear. The pregnancy test is normally performed 12 days after the AI procedure. A blood beta-hCG test is the most accurate. A home pregnancy test is less accurate and can be done 15 days after the AI. We will contact you as soon as we receive your test result.
