IUI (Intrauterine Insemination)
IUI is one of the most common fertility treatment option we perform at Bloom Fertility Clinic Lagos.
IUI (Intrauterine insemination) involves placing a prepared sperm inside a woman’s uterus at the ovulation time to facilitate fertilization. This ensures that the timing is right and increase the number of sperm that gets to the fallopian tube and thus increases the chances of fertilization and pregnancy happening. Many of our patient choose this option because It is painless, direct, less invasive and more affordable.
At Bloom Fertility Clinic, our expert team of professionals can carefully coordinate your procedure with your natural cycle or with fertility medications to help you achieve a successful conception.
Our entire team at Bloom Fertility Clinic in Nigeria is committed to giving you the individualized care you deserve and guiding you during every step of your journey.
Before IUI is performed, our Fertility Specialist at Bloom Fertility Clinic will test and evaluate the quality of the sperm specimen. For patients who have chosen a sperm donor, the sperm is also tested for HIV and any communicable diseases. Once sperm has been cleared, the first step in the IUI procedure involves sperm washing, which separates the healthy sperm from the seminal fluid. This step can provide a more concentrated and effective sample. Once your eggs are determined to be mature, our fertility specialist will inject the sperm. A highly concentrated amount of the most motile sperm are placed in the uterine cavity via a small catheter. The insemination is virtually painless and will only last about 20 minutes. Our entire team at Bloom Fertility Clinic in Nigeria is committed to giving you the individualized care you deserve and guiding you during every step of your journey. Our fertility specialist will monitor you for signs of pregnancy during your follow-up appointments, ensuring the highest chance of success.
