Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.
IUI provides the sperm an advantage by giving it a head start, but still requires a sperm to reach and fertilize the egg on its own.
IUI procedures are typically prescribed to address decreased sperm count or reduced sperm mobility. At Integrated Health Clinic, our process begins with a thorough assessment of each couple to affirm the root cause of their infertility concerns. This includes medical history review, physical examination, laboratory testing (blood work), and sperm analysis.
Integrated Health Clinic utilizes an in-house health Canada approved SQA-V Gold Sperm Analyzer. The SQA-V is an analytical medical device that performs a complete quantitative evaluation of semen quality and semen parameters in less than 2 minutes. This high performance analyzer incorporates technology in electrooptics, computer algorithms and video microscopy to provide a quick, precise and accurate automated semen analysis.
