Choosing Between IUI and IVF

IVF and IUI are two different ways through which a woman gets pregnant. It entirely depends on the health of the couple as which treatment will be best suited for them. But the guidance of the doctor is very necessary in this concern as they will be able to guide you in a better way. They can tell you about both the options in detail, the results of the treatment and how useful can it be in your case. So all this really helps as couples find the right solution to their problem and are able to benefit from the same.

If you too are struggling between IVF and IUI, here is a little more information about both of them. So let us get started. 

IUI – This is the process wherein the male sperms are extracted and then inserted into the woman’s uterus for fertilization. Now this timing is very crucial. That is why the sperms are transferred during the ovulation only as the chances of getting pregnant are very high in this condition. The best thing about this process is that quality sperms are transferred into the body and therefore fertilization takes place properly. In case the male partner is not healthy enough, donors can be used for the sperms. In total you can say that it is a beneficial process and works well if the eggs are in good condition and quality sperms are inserted into the body. 

IVF – On the other hand, IVF is quite different from IUI. This is the process in which both eggs and sperms are allowed to fuse outside the body. The woman is given fertility drugs to boost the production of the eggs and the same is extracted and then fused in the Petri dish. The adequate atmosphere is created in the lab so that cell division takes place. When fertilization is done, the same is transferred into the uterus where it grows like a normal pregnancy. In this case both the male and female donors can be used in case the couple eggs and sperms are not healthy.

This is definitely a very good process and does wonders for infertile couples. Sometimes IVF and IUI can be alternate treatments for the couples depending on their physical health. Only correct diagnosis can help in this condition as which of the two treatments will be beneficial. It is your doctor or expert who can best tell you about the benefits of IVF and IUI. Based on their advice you can decide which one you feel makes a better option.

The ultimate motive of any couple is to have a baby and both these treatments are really good. IVF and IUI are really effective in treating infertility and that is why couples wish to give it a try at least once. So what are you waiting for, if you are unable to conceive due to one or more reasons it is high time to consult a good specialist who can tell you which option is a better one. Hope the decision proves helpful to you.
