    Ovulation Induction with Intrauterine Insemination
    Some women have unexplained infertility, or problems with ovulation. In these cases the ovaries can be artificially stimulated to produce eggs. This is achieved using a combination of drugs; a nasal spray followed by follicle stimulating hormone injections.

    The nasal spray is used to temporarily suppress the natural activity of your cycle during your treatment. Your response to the nasal spray will be checked with a blood sample and a scan. When your hormones are suppressed you will start daily hormone injections. These injections may be administered here, by your GP or Practice Nurse, or by self-administration using an auto-injector.

    Your response to these injections is monitored by blood samples to check hormone levels, and by transvaginal scanning to observe the ovarian response. When you have reached the appropriate stage of stimulation you are given an injection of HCG. This injection will mature the eggs and release them into the fallopian tubes. After 36-40 hours your intrauterine insemination will be carried out. This is performed by injecting prepared sperm in a fine catheter through your cervix into the uterus. This procedure is very similar to having a cervical smear.

    You will be given pessaries for hormonal support following your IUI, and a urine test will be required 17 days after your HCG injection to determine the outcome of your treatment.
