what are the main reasons that an IUI fails? in a scale of 1-10 with 1 for the highest, how would you rate this treatment? please let me know your thoughts on this. thanks!

studies show that IUI are about 80 percent chance of failing. most doctor would say it takes a few tries but it's actually not true. based on my own experienced, i had multiple counts of IUI cycle but no success at all!

so true! IUI procedure is such a waste of time! the only reason why people consider this option is because it's the most cheap procedure of all but totally not worth it.

i had 8 iui cycles and still failed. i think this procedure just doesn't work at all. i am now taking fertility blend and i'm crossing my fingers for this one so wish me luck!

i had 4 cycles and none of them had worked. maybe i think it's also because i had PCOS, but still i don't think that's enough reason for it not to work. i'm frustrated and worst thing is, i can no longer take the procedure since i can no longer afford to pay for it.

I had one cycle, I was 38, fell pregnant first try. I now have a beautiful 7 month old baby girl. It does work!

Success rates depend on a couple's fertility problem and age. Studies have found that for couples with unexplained infertility, the pregnancy rate for each natural IUI cycle is about 4 to 5 percent, and when fertility drugs are used, the pregnancy rate is about 7 to 16 percent.

In most instances, gynecologists end up suggesting Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) type of treatment to increase the possibilities of conception. IUI is cheap hence many couples make it their option of choice in getting pregnant. Couples get eager to try the method due to its cost implications and hope it will solve their problem to enable them to have their baby. The method is suggested despite male partners having low sperm count, the rationale behind this school of thought is simple, it takes a single healthy sperm to have your egg fertilized! Some couples prefer it due to its simplicity, and it has no complications involved. Few people prefer going through complex medical procedures, and this explains why many couples opt for the IUI process.
Honestly, IUI treatment fails in most cases and hardly do couples become pregnant. Doctors never disclose to patients that IUI has a success rate of 10-15%. Chances of being successful with the IUI treatment for pregnancy are very slim. Couples lack advance information of the possibility of failure, most of them get into the program with scant information or no clue of what lies in store for them. On a scale of 1-10, where one is highest, I would give it 7.
