During coitus, the ejaculate is deposited around the cervix. Only progressively motile sperm having a normal morphology can penetrate and migrate through the cervical mucus.
In addition, there are factors in seminal plasma that actually inhibit fertilization (de capacitation factors), and prostaglandin. Although fertile sperm with progressive motility and normal morphology are able to pass through into the uterus, they can’t fertilize an egg until its seminal plasma coating are removed.
The sperm processing performed in the laboratory removes these harmful substances, along with dead or damaged sperm. The processing also concentrates all viable sperm into an amount ideally suited for Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), a process by which a physician clinically places sperm within the uterus directly through the cervix.
Optimum time of IUI depends on any one or all of the following: Hormone levels, ultrasound measurement of your spouse’s follicles, urinary ovulation prediction kit response, and the sperm quality.
Recommendations for Successful IUI outcome
Double IUI utilizing the timing below:
Regardless, your physician will recommend the appropriate number of inseminations for your spouse based on her age, clinical findings and your sperm quality.
We have developed a filter column which is marketed by Cook Ob/Gyn as “Sperm Filter Column”, has been shown to be very effective as compared to other procedures such as ‘Swim up” or Density Gradient Centrifugation procedures. The typical laboratory procedure requires about 20 minutes.
