Artificial insemination also is known as Intrauterine insemination (IUI), is one of the most common, effective and affordable treatments for infertility. Most people can easily afford artificial insemination cost along with the cost of donor sperms and in some cases; insurance may provide a certain amount of the total fees. Let us look at what we can expect in terms of artificial insemination cost according to the type of treatment procedure and the resources used for Artificial Insemination.

Cost of artificial insemination is directly related to the number of resources used and the complexity of the procedure performed. Following are the factors that contribute to the cost of IUI:

Consultation

Before going for any infertility treatment, you will always have to consult a fertility doctor or health care facilitators like Elawoman. It will certainly help you find the best infertility specialist and hospitals in your area. The doctor may recommend you some diagnostic tests, which are charged separately from the cost of IUI.

Testing to determine ovulation

Once you have found a reliable doctor and clinic, you will have to go through some tests before starting of artificial insemination cycle. You will need to take medicines and track your ovulation cycle so that the procedure is when you are fertile. This can be done using home ovulation kits or advanced medical devices. You will also have to visit the doctor several times for the diagnosis of blood tests and ultrasounds.

Fertility tests before IUI

During the diagnosis, you and your partner are examined to find out the cause behind your infertility. The possibility of conceiving artificially and whether IUI procedure is suitable depends completely on test results.

fertility test before IUI

For a woman to have IUI, her fallopian tubes must be healthy and must not have any extreme reproductive disorders.
Male partner is not usually advised IUI if he has:

  • Unexplained infertility
  • Low sperm count or poor quality sperm
  • Mild endometriosis

People suffering from these conditions have little chance of getting pregnant compared with natural attempts.

1. Medication

Generally, women are suggested to take Clomid tablets to help stimulate ovulation during artificial insemination. If a woman is ovulating normally with healthy signs of ovulation and if IUI is being performed using frozen donor sperm, no medication may be required for the man.

2. Semen processing in the laboratory

On the day of the insemination, the male partner provides a semen specimen, which is processed in the laboratory to prepare it to be used in IUI procedure. This semen processing charge is also included in the final medical bill.

3. Insemination

The doctor performs insemination, which takes just a few minutes. The sperm is placed in a catheter, which is inserted through cervix; the doctor deposits the sperm in the uterus and withdraws the catheter.

Artificial Insemination Using Donor Sperm

Treatment with donor sperm involves either donor sperm insemination or IVF with donor sperm. Married women can choose to be inseminated with their husbands' sperm or with the sperm of a donor from a sperm bank, a process called artificial insemination by donor (AID). A married woman may use a sperm donation if artificial insemination by husband (AIH) is not an option due to male factor infertility or if the male partner could transfer genetic disorders to the embryo; a single woman may elect AID in order to have a baby by herself.

artificial insemination using Donor sperm

Artificial insemination using donor sperm may also be a solution to infertile patients who cannot afford more advanced treatment such as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).

Treatment with donor sperm

The doctor will advise what is best for you based on the results of your initial fertility diagnosis and other factors including your age, medical history and outcome of any previous treatment cycles you have had. You will be given a full cost summary, transparently priced treatment plan, and the procedure so you know what your treatment involves from right at the start.

Benefits of Artificial Insemination

Artificial insemination is a revolutionary fertility procedure with numerous benefits.

  • The AI technique creates an avenue to pregnancy for couples faced with male infertility or female infertility.
  • AI by donor allows sperm to be tested and screened prior to insemination, reducing the likelihood of passing a genetic disorder on to the child. 
  • Another benefit of artificial insemination is that it allows same-sex couples to conceive a child. 
  • The fertility specialist in your area will be able to provide you with additional information on the benefits of artificial insemination.

Artificial Insemination Cost

The exact artificial insemination cost can vary based on whether medication is used; the treatment process and how monitoring for ovulation is performed. IUI artificial insemination can typically cost as little as Rs. 5000, however, it can rise up to Rs. 20,000 in certain cases of infertility. Your doctor will discuss the anticipated costs in your particular case. At just a fraction of the cost of more intensive procedures like IVF, IUI is often the first-line treatment for infertility, and it is effective for a large number of patients.

Artificial insemination costs vary from one couple to the next and from doctor to doctor, as tests, treatment plans, and medications differ according to the couple’s age, medical history and the reputation of the clinic where it is performed. These are some of the factors that can influence the cost of IUI treatment plan.

  • The cost of investigation and diagnosis
  • The cost of drug therapy and medications

  • The cost of the AI procedure (the intracervical insemination procedure is typically less expensive than the intrauterine artificial insemination procedure)
  • The cost of the hospital stay

Other charges may also apply, so be sure to talk with your fertility specialist about the total cost of artificial insemination before going for treatment. Also, ask your doctor about any infertility treatment financing options that may be available. Financing can make the cost of your treatment affordable.

When I see my baby running here and there then I remember the old time, when I and my wife have lost the hope that we will ever be able to have a baby. We got our baby through IUI, seeing him makes our day.

IUI is the cheapest infertility treatment as compared with other treatments, so everyone can afford it easily. Its success rate is also very decent and depends on the doctor and other factors as well.

The IUI cost is least in Kolkata and Pune. It actually differs from place to place. My friends who live in Kolkata told me that there are many top fertility clinics at reasonable prices. Their success rate is really high.

When I was thinking of IUI then the first thing that came in my mind was Elawoman. I had heard a lot about them, so I called them and they took the responsibility of my treatment.
