yes IUI is indicated when conception does not occur
it helps in all cases including endometriosis
The success rate of IUI is less in endometriosis compared with women without endometriosis
its good to take treatment now as you are still at a good age to conceive
after 35 yrs there is remarkable decline in fertlity

do you have any success rate info?
Answered by Dr. Chetna Jain 14 hours later
The success rate of IUI is 15 % in normal population, means 15 out of 100 women will conceive after IUI.
The rates are lower in infertility and are expected to be about 10% if the endometriosis is mild. If the pelvic anatomy is badly distorted the success rates are negilgible.
