We Are Open! Enquire now about our Virtual Open Days.
IUI, or Intrauterine-insemination is a procedure in which either fresh or frozen-thawed sperm is prepared within our laboratory and transferred into your womb in synchrony with ovulation and the release of an egg from your ovary.
We know that undergoing fertility treatment can be an anxious and stressful time. Our team will guide and support you throughout your journey whilst ensuring that they deliver first class clinical results.
Your treatment journey begins with a consultation with your doctor to discuss your medical history and, if, necessary, any recommendations for further investigations. We focus on the detail so that we design an individualised treatment plan to deliver the best possible results for you. Dependent upon your medical history, IUI cycles can involve either minimal or no medication. You will spend time with one of our expert nurses who will guide you through the process and be on hand to provide you with care and support throughout your journey.
During IUI treatment, your cycle we will closely monitor your cycle to ensure an optimal response to your treatment. This monitoring may involve tracking follicle growth, measuring the thickness of the uterus lining and measuring hormone levels to ensure optimal timing for the IUI.
On the morning of the IUI, the embryologist will prepare the fresh/frozen-thawed sperm and you will be asked to attend the clinic later that day.
Approximately two weeks following the IUI, it will be time to do your pregnancy test. A follow up appointment with your doctor will ensure you are fully supported following your test result and will provide an opportunity to discuss any steps from there.
We’ll organise for you to have complimentary, separate, one to one video consultations with one of our senior consultants, a senior embryologist, our fertility nutritionist and our Patient Services Director. Discuss your personal fertility situation from the comfort of your own home, and take back control.
