IUI Costs And What Is Involved
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

IUI can cost anywhere from $300 to $800 according to the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago at the time of this writing.

IUI or Intrauterine Insemination is an alternative medical-related procedure that is without a doubt aiding infertile husbands and wives to cure their sterility.

Originally this particular technique, that was pioneered in Denmark, called for employing an exceptionally fine glass needle that put one particular male sperm upon an ovum inside the woman.

Even though the technique was painstaking and necessitated superb competency (a sperm is very tiny and measures only a couple thousandths of a millimeter; an ovum is also small and is only one tenth of a millimeter), the process proved to be effective.

It included the further benefit of occurring within the woman’s body and working with her husband’s sperm in place of that of an nameless donor—thus bypassing fragile ethical and faith based issues.

Considering poor-quality sperm is definitely a factor for infertility for a third of all infertile husbands and wives, many physicians using the technique believe that an ever increasing number of couples will probably now have restored expectations of starting a family.

Today the procedure is somewhat different but also effective. Instead of using just one sperm, several sperm are collected and then 'washed' and the entire load is concentrated and injected directly into the woman's uterus.

This is done usually the calculated day after a new egg is released. The expectation is that the sperm will swim into the fallopian tubes and fertilize the waiting egg.

The procedure is usually painless and requires no anesthesia. It is quite similar in procedure to a pap smear where a speculum is used to gain access to the cervix through which the sperm is introduced directly into the uterus by means of a catheter.

There is usually some light spotting for a day or two after the procedure.

While the procedure itself is quite straightforward and takes only about 15 or 20 minutes in the privacy of your doctor's office, it's obvious that the whole procedure depends on working with healthy sperm and eggs to begin with.

Here is where many couples have taken some extra preparatory steps to increase the chances of conception given the cost of IUI.

Much has been said about diet and nutrition and their impact on conception. This also applies to the male production of sperm. There could be many reasons as to why you are infertile.

If targeted diet and nutrition alone can increase the possibility of conception and sperm production, it could only be even more effective when combined with IUI.

In view of the of the IUI cost , the idea is to educate oneself and see what there is to learn before embarking on any endeavor, especially something as private and personal as IUI.
