What is the Vaccination Method (IUI)?

IUI treatment, which is one of the methods applied by couples with infertility problems, is a method that takes place outside of sexual intercourse. It is the process of taking the sperm of the man and leaving it directly into the uterus of the woman during the ovulation period with the help of needles.

Who Is Vaccination Applied To?

  1. Patients with low sperm count and insufficient motility
  2. Patients with sperm motility disorders
  3. Patients with sexual dysfunction that prevents the union of sperm and egg
  4. Patients with poor egg quality
  5. Patients who have the problem that sperm cells cannot pass through the cervix of the woman or cannot survive (cervical factor in infertility)
  6. Patients with unexplained infertility problems

In order for the vaccination to be applied successfully, first of all, the woman should not have an ovulation problem. One of the patient's 2 tubes must be open, the tubes must be able to allow the sperm and egg to merge. The patient's sperm analysis should be normal or close to normal. There should be no conditions that would prevent the pregnancy from holding.

Preparation Period for the Vaccination Method

Before the vaccination process, the patient is given external medication to stimulate the ovaries. The purpose of these drugs is to ensure the healthy growth and development of the ovaries.

Egg Development Monitoring

Egg development is followed by ultrasonography (USG). Ultrasonography helps to track the size of the egg cell. Size tracking is very important because when the egg size reaches around 17-18 mm, it is ready to hatch.

With the increase in estrogen hormone, a healthy follicle development is observed. A sudden increase in the LH hormone during the ovulation period causes the follicle to crack and the egg cell to be released. As a result of the egg cell passing into the tubes, it is fertilized by the sperm cell. If an unexpected increase in the LH hormone occurs, it is very important to follow these measurements, as it may cause premature cracking of the egg and inhibition of the inoculation process.

Follow-up Frequency

The patient is on the 2nd-5th day of the menstrual cycle. He starts using drugs between days. 8-9. On days, USG and hormone tests are started, then the dose is adjusted and the patient is followed up regularly every day.

How Is Ovulation Time Determined?

When the follicle size reaches 18-20 mm in USG, the follicle is cracked by administering hCG hormone with the help of an external needle. And this hormone allows the egg cell to be released.

  • The patient should not use painkillers unless absolutely necessary, close to the ovulation period. We do not recommend using too much painkillers because it negatively affects ovulation.
  • You can continue your sexual life during the treatment process, there is nothing to prevent this.
  • If you are using a medication regularly, please inform your doctor before starting your treatment.
  • Do not use any medicine before consulting your doctor.
  • Stay away from radiation fields

Vaccination Time

The sperm samples taken from the man on the day of the vaccination are processed, then the sperm cells with the highest rate of fertilization of the egg cell are separated and injected into the uterus with the help of a plastic cannula called a catheter.

  • Anesthesia is not required during vaccination and is a painless procedure.
  • It is expected to take approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  • You do not need to stay after the end of the vaccination process, you can leave the clinic at any time
  • There is no need to restrict your sexual life after the procedure.
  • Consult your doctor if you have unexpected vaginal bleeding.
