I want to know what is IUI ?

Dr M.K. Gupta
Artificial insemination, or AI, is the process by which sperm is placed into the reproductive tract of a female for the purpose of impregnating the female by using means other than sexual intercourse or natural insemination.
In humans, it is used as assisted reproductive technology, using either sperm from the woman's male partner or sperm from a sperm donor in cases where the male partner produces no sperm or the woman has no male partner. In cases where donor sperm is used the woman is the gestational and genetic mother of the child produced, and the sperm donor is the genetic or biological father of the child.
For a woman to have IUI, her fallopian tubes must be open and healthy. The fallopian tubes connect the ovaries to the womb. Eggs are released in the ovaries into the fallopian tubes every month, which is where fertilisation takes place. When there is a problem with the fallopian tubes, it might prevent IUI from working.
Checking the fallopian tubes are open and healthy is sometimes known as a tubal patency test. The fallopian tubes can be assessed using 1 of 2 methods:
A laparoscopy involves making a small cut in the lower abdomen. A thin, tubular microscope known as a laparoscope will be used to look more closely in the womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries. A dye may be injected with the neck of the womb into the fallopian tubes to highlight any blockages.
A laparoscopy is usually only used if it's most likely that there is a problem, for instance if a woman has already established pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID is an infection that can damage and scar the fallopian tubes.
A hysterosalpingogram is a kind of X-ray that's taken from the womb and fallopian tubes following a special dye continues to be injected. This will help detect any abnormalities or defects, such as tumours or scar tissue.
The timing of IUI
To increase the likelihood of success, a cycle of IUI should be carried out soon after ovulation. Ovulation is when a number of eggs are freed from the ovaries into the fallopian tubes.
It is difficult to calculate exactly when ovulation will occur, however in most women it always happens 10 to 16 days before the start of their period. The menstrual period begins on the first day's a period of time (day one). Ovulation occurs some time after the period, which is then the following period 10 to 16 days later.
IUI is usually completed between day 12 and day 16 of the menstrual cycle.
Women might be given an ovulation prediction kit (OPK) to work out the date of ovulation with greater accuracy. An OPK is a simple testing device that can detect hormones which are released during ovulation in urine or saliva. Alternatively, a woman may have blood or urine tests to find out when she is about to ovulate.
If your woman is applying fertility medication to encourage ovulation, an ultrasound scan may be used to look into the growth and development of the eggs. An ultrasound scan uses high-frequency soundwaves to produce a picture from the inside of the body. See Artificial insemination - how it's performed for more information about fertility medication.
When an egg is mature, the girl might be given an injection of hormones to stimulate the egg

|Strange brownish sittopng for 8 days. Took an aspirin and it got heavier. Could I be pregnant? Please Help!?I'm 23 years old. Okay, so the last time my boyfriend and I had protected sex on June 3rd and June 4th. However, before he put the condom on he had been inside me without anything on, but it was for about a minute. He did not orgasm. I'm also not on birth control. I cannot be on it for medical reasons. We use condoms.Anyway, I've NEVER had regular periods, my shortest cycle was 33 days and my longest was 64 days. I keep track of them using an online calendar, and my last period was May 7th. My expected period was supposed to be June 19th, according to the online calendar. On June 20th, I got some strange brownish discharge, the kind that you usually get when your period ends. It's been 8 DAYS and I only see it when I wipe. Not much shows up on my pad, just a smear if even that.I've heard this could be implantation bleeding, but it would have been 16 or 17 days days since conception if I got pregnant on the 3rd or 4th. And that seems like a long while later. Also, it's been lasting on and off for about 8 days, so I'm not even sure it's that because I read somewhere that implantation bleeding is only a day at most. I'm NOT trying to get pregnant so I hope it's not that.As for symptoms, my BBT has not changed recently, with the exception of a temp of 99.0 for maybe an hour before going back to 97.6. It's ranged in the 98.0 s but in the morning it's always 97.6. I've been slightly fatigued and a little achy, but that usually happens when my period is coming.I've also been under a great deal of stress with college classes. My sleep schedule completely changed and so have my eating habits due to my new schedule. My cat almost died around the end of May, so I was crying almost everyday for a week. My boyfriend and I have had some intense arguments, so I know my emotions were crazy. I also stopped working out. I've heard these are all factors that can affect my period.So could this just be a really light period? Or implantation bleeding? Is my period coming but just taking its sweet old time? I've just never had this before so I'm worried.The discharge and blood clots range in color from dark brown to blackish to a tinge of pink. And I only see the clots when I pee. Today I took an aspirin and I got some red bleeding and a lot more of it on my pad and in the toilet. It looked like a normal period, but now appears to have stopped for the moment. I'm also dry down there today.|
