Ovulation Induction and Intra-Uterine Insemination

Key requirements, pros and cons:

  • Female reproductive organs must be healthy
  • Male must have good sperm count
  • Mild ovarian stimulation using Clomiphene and monitoring of egg development using vaginal ultrasound, basal body temperature charts and urinary hormone tests
  • Minimal laboratory involvement
  • Low cost but success rates lower than IVF
  • Once adequate follicular development has been determined, ovulation is triggered using a hormone and prepared sperm placed into the uterus.
