Intrauterine insemination at 40
The treatment helps the couple to deal with fertility problems. The couple who are facing problem conceiving needs to consult the best fertility expert at the IVF centre in Punjab. One of the treatment options which can benefit the patient is IUI treatment.
What happens during IUI treatment?
The treatment involves the insertion of the sperm into the uterus directly when the woman is ovulating so it increases the chances of conception. The timing plays an important part and the procedure is done during the time of ovulation. The treatment should be carried out by the experienced and trained fertility doctor.
Before insertion, the sperm is washed whether it comes from a male counterpart or male donor. The weaker sperm is separated from the healthier and stronger sperm. By doing so the success rate will not get affected and the chances of getting an infection are also reduced. Toxins are removed from the semen as they can also cause infection in some cases which can hinder the pregnancy.
What is the procedure of IUI?
The procedure is not that complex. During the treatment, fertility drugs are used to facilitate ovulation. At times, the hormonal levels are controlled. After washing the sperm and removing the toxins it will be introduced into the fallopian tubes of the women through a catheter which is inserted through the cervix.
Following the procedure, the women should take rest. The procedure is painless and quick as it takes only 10 to 15 minutes to carry it easily.
Less invasive treatment
The procedure is less invasive and cheaper as compared to other fertility treatments. The procedure can leave normal side effects because of medications like mood swings, and cramps. Apart from these, there can be side effects like Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and swollen ovaries which can result in discomfort also.
Once you stop taking the medications the symptoms also stop. If you think the symptoms you are having are not normal then make sure to seek medical help right away.
How long does the implementation take?
The egg is viable for 12 to 24 hours after ovulation. The implantation generally takes place between 3 to 12 days and it can vary from person to person also. You need to take proper stress and do not stress over anything.
How will you find out if the implantation has taken place?
First of all, you should not be impatient to check if the implantation has taken place. If you take the pregnancy test too soon then it might not give accurate results. It is possible it can show a false positive or false negative. You need to take medications on time and visit the doctor for check-ups.
