IUI – Intrauterine Insemination

IUI - intrauterinní inseminace

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) may have a therapeutic effect in moderately low fertility in men or in the cases of immunological or idiopathic infertility, etc. It is the method of choice in using sperm from a donor.

The success of this method is relatively low (10-15%) – but it can be carried out repeatedly, in each cycle. The success rate then accumulates, and thus the total number of children born after IUI is certainly not negligible.

The basic condition for the use of this procedure is the maintained patency of at least one of the fallopian tubes. We therefore recommend tubal patency testing before performing IUI. Likewise, semen analysis (spermiogram) should be done. In case of serious disorders on the part of male, intrauterine insemination does not have the expected effect. When ovulation is present, IUI may be at first carried out in the cycles without hormonal treatment (native cycles). In case of failure or if there is no evidence of ovulation, the ovulation is induced by hormonal drugs.

How does it work? The date for IUI is arranged after using ultrasound folliculometry. That day the man comes about 2 hours before the woman for his own performance. He obtains sperm in the same way as for the semen analysis, thus by masturbation. Then the sperm is treated in the laboratory. There is virtually no risk for the women when using the IUI method and the performance itself is completely painless.

Actually, it is not anything else than ordinary gynaecological examination in mirrors. During ovulation, prepared sperm is injected by a thin catheter through the vagina and cervix directly into the uterus. The woman leaves a few minutes after the performance. There are not any restrictions after intrauterine insemination, thus full physical and sexual activity is allowed.

IUI is covered by health insurance 6 times per year.

Vážený pane doktore Šulci,

Chtěli bychom se touto cestou vrátit zpátky k péči, které se nám dostávalo od Vás a Vašich kolegů z GESTu od cca května loňského roku a které se nám dostává stále v průběhu prozatím dobře se vyvíjejícího těhotenství.

Vám bychom chtěli moc poděkovat mj. také za Váš přístup k nám, díky kterému jsme se i v ne vždy pozitivně vyhlížející situaci cítili tak, že je o nás postaráno a že je tady někdo, na koho se můžeme obrátit pro pomoc a radu. Moc si toho vážíme, protože nám to jednak pomohlo a také jsme si vědomi toho, že to v dnešní době bohužel stále není standard.

 Ještě jednou moc děkujeme



Finaly even me can boast with joyfull news. On 10th February 2020 was born gorgeous girl Michalka (3650 g, 51 cm). She arrived 10 days after predicted date of birth. We, happy parents, want to thank to the whole Gest team for the longwished happiness. Markéta and Lukáš



Finally can we show off our babyboy Michal. He was born on 24.12.2019, his weight was 2720g and was 48 cm long. Michal came into this world little bit earlier - at 37th week. 
Thanks a lot to the whole team - finally we have our little treasure.
