IUIs | Timed Intercourse | Reproductive Surgery | More Fertility Options

Today there are more options for infertility treatment than ever before. Women who are trying to get pregnant can increase the odds by timing intercourse based on the ovulation cycle. If this method is not effective, women can have artificial insemination to stimulate the growth of egg follicles.

 

FIRST TREATMENT OPTION: IUI

An IUI (intrauterine insemination) cycle involves fertility drugs which stimulate the production of several eggs and trigger ovulation. IUI significantly increases the chance of getting pregnant because, at the time of ovulation, a concentrated amount of healthy sperm is placed directly into the uterus. IUI is recommended for women who are under the age of 35 who have a healthy uterus, who do not have obstructed fallopian tubes, or who are using a sperm donor.

 

TICKING CLOCK: TIMED INTERCOURSE

A woman is fertile for five days before ovulation and 24 hours after ovulation. This ovulation window is based on the survival times of the sperm and the egg. Using timed intercourse can increase a woman’s chance of becoming pregnant. Timed intercourse is one of the easiest and most cost-effective treatment options for women who are trying to conceive.

 

OPERABLE MEASURES: REPRODUCTIVE SURGERY
