Couples are always confused about choosing between IUI and IVF. The success of either procedure depends on a lot of factors and there is a marked price difference between the two procedures. It is advisable to take your doctors opinion based on the diagnosis of your fertility problem to choose the right procedure.
Even though there are lots of factors that can affect the success rate, age is an important aspect that can have a significant impact on the result.
The IUI Advantage
Intra Uterine Insemination ( IUI )is a helpful procedure that will enable a couple to conceive. Usually the sperm has to travel a long distance to reach an egg and fertilize it. With IUI, the sperm from the male partner is collected, washed and then the good motile sperms are carefully injected directly via a catheter into the uterus. This means the sperm has to travel a lesser distance, thus increasing the chances of conception.
