Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) in Boca Raton & Aventura

Enhance Your Chances of Getting Pregnant

Your journey to parenthood will be guided by our caring and compassionate team, lead by Mark Denker, M.D. at Palm Beach Fertility Center. Our team at Palm Beach Fertility Center is committed to helping you reach your goal of becoming a parent and educating you on the most effective treatments.

One technique we may recommend to boost your odds of conception is intrauterine insemination (IUI). This simple procedure puts sperm cells directly into the uterus at the time you’re ovulating. Sometimes called donor insemination or artificial insemination, IUI is a method in which concentrated, highly motile sperm are washed and separated from other seminal fluid. Then, the sperm is injected into the female patient’s uterus, so it gets as close to her egg as possible to facilitate fertilization. IUI is less invasive and less expensive than in-vitro fertilization (IVF), but it requires the sperm to reach and fertilize the egg by itself, without human intervention.

Is IUI Right for Me?

IUI is an effective fertility treatment for many women, but it is not right for everyone. While IUI is much less costly than IVF, its success rates are significantly lower (IVF pregnancy rates are about 5 to 10 times higher). For this reason, we will help you explore your options to enhance your odds of conception while keeping your financial situation in mind.

IUI may be an appropriate fertility treatment for you you if you:

  • Have unexplained infertility (often IUI is combined with ovulation-inducing medications in this case)
  • Have endometriosis-related infertility
  • Have ovulatory factor infertility
  • Have a semen allergy
  • Your cervix has scar tissue or thick cervical mucus that can impede sperm from moving from the vagina to the uterus
  • Your male partner has less motile sperm or ejaculation dysfunction
  • Are a single woman who wishes to conceive without a male partner
  • You are in a lesbian relationship and want to start a family

Donor Sperm & IUI for Single Women or Lesbian Couples

Starting a family is important to many women, and at Palm Beach Fertility Center, we fully support this, regardless of a woman’s martial status or sexual orientation. IVF may not be necessary or even recommended for women who are better candidates for IUI. IUI for lesbian couples is an excellent, incredibly useful fertility treatment option. Many single women also find IUI to be their best route to conception and opt to conceive via donor sperm. IUI is often the simplest and most affordable path to motherhood for these patients. Before IUI, you will choose a carefully screened sperm donor. Learn more about sperm donation here.
