What is IUI procedure? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
my sisters laproscopy has been done few days back
she has a bicornuate uterus
her periods are regular but exact time par she dont recieve her periods
now doctor has advised her IUI
i want to knw wt is IUI all about and what is the procedure...and will it help her getting her periods on time and will she be able to concieve?
It is a means of assisted fertilization
which helps couples who are not able to conceive naturally.
is it also because she has bicornuate uterus?
In this process, sperms are collected from the partner or donor is artificially injected into the uterus/fallopian tube of the woman.
it sounds similar to IVF
Yes, in a way.
Invitro Fertilization is a process where both the mothers egg and fathers sperms are collected,
Here fertilization occurs externally.
The embryo which develops is selected and transferred to the mother's womb.
ok...but with the help of IUI will she be able to get her periods on time...i mean will iui help her any way?
But in IUI, it's the sperms that are transferred and fertilization occur inside the mother's womb.
IUI is a process to help her conceive.
If IUI success and she conceives
periods would not occur for a few months
Hope it is clear to you.
Is there any other query?
but our concern is why she dont get her periods on exact date....what tests should we conduct to knw wht exactly is the problem
or what can be the reason behind it?
If here previous cycles are very regular, then the current delay can be attributed to hormonal disturbances.
Menstrual cycles are regulated by cyclical hormonal changes and many factors including stress and recent surgical procedures/infection
but its happening to her since last october
may cause disturbances to this cycle.
If there has been frequent menstrual disturbances
various other conditions could be the cause.
It is extremely difficult for me to predict a close possibility.
The cause could be related to her anatomical/structural problem,
and so on.
Her gynecologist who has evaluated her before performing laproscopy
We can be able to plan a treatment if the cause is known.
Unknown cause where period disturbances are found can be treated with hormonal drugs like birth control pills.
We can be only be able to address one problem at a point,
either her difficulty to conceive or
correcting her irregular periods.
I guess it is conceiving which is important at this point and hence IUI.
ya since she is in her 5th year of her marriage
If irregular period is disturbing her, she can plan its treatment along with her gynecologist after successful pregnancy.
So do not worry.
Proceed with IUI as advised
and wish for good luck.
Hope you have followed me.
Is there any other query?
