The IUI process at Beyond IVF
Step one: Doctor consultation
The doctor will explain the procedure and preparation and set up the treatment plan. (Please see the doctor before your period.)
Step two: Ovarian stimulation
You will take medication to stimulate your ovaries on the second or third day of your period.
Step three: Ultrasound
The doctor will perform an ultrasound to check on the number and size of eggs, and once the eggs are the desired size, a trigger shot will be administered to cause ovulation. Intrauterine insemination will be performed 24-40 hours after that, when ovulation occurs.
Step four: Preparing sperm
When the eggs are ready, the doctor will schedule the male partner for sperm collection and preparation for IUI. Sperm is treated in the laboratory and only the healthiest sperm are chosen for preparation.
Step five: Insemination
On the same day, when the sperm is collected and prepared, the doctor will inject the sperm into the uterus and will wait for a pregnancy test in a couple of weeks.
Step six: Pregnancy test
About two to three weeks after IUI, a pregnancy test can be carried out.

IUI Success Case at Beyond IVF
In this case the female partner was 31 years old and was experiencing infertility as she had been trying for many years to become pregnant. After doing research about assisted reproductive technologies, she decided to visit Beyond IVF for a fertility screening. Dr. Phunsak recommended IUI along with a special technique designed for the individual patient after fertility screening along with ovarian stimulation and balancing the hormones, with the goal of increasing the chances of a successful pregnancy as much as possible. From the last ultrasound, Dr. Phunsak confirmed that she was pregnant.
This patient had done many rounds of IUI at another clinic, but they were all unsuccessful. So she decided to consult with Dr. Phunsak and undergo a fertility screening at Beyond IVF. Dr. Phunsak recommended IUI again after reviewing the results of the screening as he believed it was still worth trying, but he designed a new technique. The patient was able to become pregnant with IUI at Beyond IVF.

After the results of the health screening were released, Dr. Phunsak recommended IUI. It was successful and the patient is happily pregnant.
