Pregnancy Gynaecology

I am exploring treatment options as I have been trying for a child for over 2 years with no success. Will IVF or IUI be the best treatment in terms of success for my situation?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

If the tubes are blocked or damaged, there is no point in doing IUI. If the sperm count is so low, again there is no point in doing an IUI.

It may be a point in doing an IUI as an interim procedure before embarking on IVF.

Although it does not carry the same success rates as IVF, it is much less of a discomfort and definitely a much cheaper procedure.

Hi Jen, 

Thanks for the D2D. Both methods can be effective, but a lot depends on your medical condition and the causes of your subfertility in the first place.

IUI is relatively simple, less invasive, less costly and less time-consuming, but the success rates are lower. Certain existing conditions make IUI less favourable, for example if your husband’s sperm count and quality are low, or if you have 1 or both fallopian tubes blocked.

IVF gives you the best chance of getting pregnant, but it demands more of your time and effort, is more invasive and costly, and most ladies find it more stressful.

You and your spouse should discuss this issue with your fertility doctor in order to understand and select the type of treatment that best suits you.
