IUI is also known as intrauterine insemination and has been in practice for male factor infertility since approximately the 1940's. The procedure can be highly successful for couples facing infertility problems that are not related to ovarian failure, severe endometriosis, severe male factor infertility and fallopian tube damage or blockage. Many times other factors will influence whether or not IUI will be an option for a couple and will have a direct bearing on the success rates involved.

When IUI is being done to help with female ovarian related infertility, often times a doctor will prescribe a fertility drug. Clomid is the first line drug of choice for fertility specialists hoping to effectively treat ovarian related infertility in women. The drug works by either inducing ovulation or by binding to estrogen receptors and producing anti-estrogen effects in the female body which make conditions ideal for conceiving and pregnancy. Ovulation occurs around day 14 of the menstrual cycle and for some couples that time intercourse to coincide, the results can end up in conception. However, when dealing with infertility and considering IUI, a person is likely going to wonder if it is even going to work.

Infertility specialists will often add intrauterine insemination to Clomid cycles in order to increase the odds of conception and pregnancy and it highly beneficial for women that can already ovulate. IUI success rates with Clomid will vary from woman to woman and have as much to do with the female body as it does the male s body. If a man has low sperm count or quality IUI may not be successful, but for those that do not have the issues presenting, the procedure can result in the couple being able to have a baby.

There are many variables involved in infertility and once the cause is known, a medical professional can advise a couple how to handle the problem. The female age, endometriosis, length of infertility, PCOS, and unexplained infertility are all related to the IUI success rates with Clomid and can make it an option to consider. When dealing with cases of unexplained infertility attempting IUI and adding Clomid into the equation can often allow a couple to conceive and finally be able to have a baby of their own.
