Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a technique of separating the fast moving sperm from the slower moving sperm, as well as “washing” the semen in an electrolyzed solution. The fast moving sperm is then placed directly into the uterine cavity close to the time of ovulation.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is used to treat various causes of infertility. One example is a couple that experiences infertility due to low sperm count. The couple may benefit from IUI because it will concentrate the number of sperm that are inserted into the uterine cavity, thus increasing the chance of one sperm to reach and fertilize the egg. IUI is also helpful in cases of unexplained infertility, where a combination of monitored ovulation and intrauterine insemination will triple the chances of pregnancy as compared to natural intercourse.

An IUI treatment is a fairly easy process. IUI’s can be done either with or without medication. The medication itself can be either oral (taken by mouth) or injectable. When done without medication an ovulation predictor kit can be used to determine the time of ovulation, and the insemination is scheduled accordingly. When medication is used, the growth of the egg is monitored by ultrasounds. When an egg is mature, a hormone injection is given to stimulate the release of the egg.
The sperm washing technique does the following:

  • It removes any possible infection.
  • It removes the prostaglandins from the sperm to minimize the chance of uterine contraction at the time of placement into the uterine cavity.
  • It concentrates the sperm into a small volume, so that the process of insemination is not painful or uncomfortable.

Freezing Party

Egg Freezing Party
7-17-2019

Wednesday, July 17th, from 6-8pm

Peyman Saadat, Medical Director of Reproductive Fertility Center in Beverly Hills is hosting an egg freezing party for women to learn about the empowering choices they have for preserving their future fertility.

Egg Freezing has been around for over 20 years, but recently has become more readily accepted as a real option for fertility preservation.

One of the greatest gifts a woman can give herself is the ability to live her life on her own terms, and not according to a biological timeline that doesn’t fit her life.

Please come out and celebrate the amazing possibilities of egg freezing with us. We will enjoy finger foods and champagne, while Dr. Saadat gives a presentation. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers, and an opportunity for women to have their blood drawn to check their AMH levels – a critically important fertility hormone, and one of the most important tools to assess a woman’s overall fertility health.

Space is limited, so please call us at 1 (424) 317-8550 as soon as possible.
