1. WHAT IS IUI?
IUI is a process by which sperms are washed and inseminated into the uterus using a soft catheter. The procedure is done for couples who failed to conceive naturally.

Here at Parampara we perform 4 -6 IUI cycles for a couple. IF IUI fails the next advanced treatment IVF/ICSI is suggested.
3. SHOULD I DO TUBE TEST BEFORE IUI ?
It would be better to assess the tubal patency before IUI, so that we know whether there is any blockage.
4. IT IS NECESSARY TO DO LAPAROSCOPY BEFORE FERTILITY TREATMENT?
A diagnostic Laparoscopy would assess the uterus, tubes, ovaries and the pelvis. So the procedure would help us to find out the cause of infertility. So if you fail to conceive naturally or scan shows some abnormality it is better to go for Laparoscopy before you go for any further fertility treatment.
