IUI is a fertility treatment that uses a catheter to place a number of washed sperm directly into the uterus. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.
Women under the age of 35 usually have higher rates of success than women over age 35, but the average success rate for IUI ranges from 10-20% in one cycle. With IUI, as with other methods of artificial insemination, the success rate depends primarily on the health of both the sperm and the woman.
IUI, intrauterine insemination timing is important to optimize the chance of conception. While sperm can last for several days in the woman’s reproductive tract, the egg is only viable for approximately 24 hours. The sperm must find its way into the fallopian tube where it then finds the egg. Multiple sperm usually compete to determine which one fertilizes the egg
knowing that you have one egg and one sperm will give an embryo,then you still have the chance and can succeed in an IUI procedure if everything is ok .
