In the first 6 cycles of intrauterine insemination, 50% of women under age 40 are pregnant.
Intrauterine insemination is a simple and painless assisted procreation procedure. Although the effectiveness is severely challenged after 3 or 4 failures, the procedure is reimbursed by the RAMQ up to 9 cycles.
It’s used when:
- Infertility is unexplained, despite a fertility check-up.
- Infertility is associated with minimal endometriosis with at least one permeable tube.
- Mild or moderate male infertility is associated with a reduced sperm motility or concentration.
- Infertility is attributable to the absence of sexual relations due to physical problems (erectile dysfunction, paraplegia).
- Infertility is due to a cervical factor (surgery on the cervix).
