Artificial insemination Tunisia : intrauterine insemination

Artificial insemination Tunisia: what is intrauterine insemination in Tunisia?

Artificial insemination is a technique of medically assisted procreation that consists of depositing sperm directly into the uterus, using a small tube called a catheter. It must be done during the ovulation period. Artificial insemination is indicated when sperm cannot reach the egg and fertilize it naturally. It aims to increase the chances that a sperm and an egg will meet and that fertilization will take place.

This technique is recommended as a treatment for infertility in cases of moderate sperm disorders in men or problems with the cervical mucus in women that prevent sperm migration. The chances of getting pregnant after artificial insemination can reach 15% per cycle. It should be noted that the success rate of artificial insemination decreases with age. Intrauterine insemination can be done with the spouse’s sperm or with a sperm donation (in case of male infertility).

Artificial insemination in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step is the pre-operative check-up. You will be asked to do a series of clinical and biological examinations (hormonal assessment, hysterosalpingography, serological assessment, spermogram).
The purpose of these examinations is to verify that both partners are in perfect health and to ensure that the chances of success of insemination are high enough (at least one of the tubes is permeable, the number of mobile spermatozoa is sufficient).
The doctor will have to inform the couple about the process of artificial insemination, but also about the risks, contraindications and costs.

How does artificial insemination work in Tunisia?

Artificial insemination is done in several stages:

– Ovarian stimulation. Although not necessarily obligatory, the stimulation of ovarian follicles is quite frequent. This allows optimizing the chances of fertilization (obtaining 2 or even 3 follicles instead of one). Ultrasound monitoring is used to monitor the progress of this stage.

– Triggering ovulation. Ovulation is triggered when the following parameters are met: presence of one (or even 2 or 3) mature follicles; endometrium of good thickness; appropriate estradiol level.

– Sperm collection. The spouse’s sperm is collected in the laboratory. A selection of the most efficient and most mobile spermatozoa is made (in order to maximize the chances of fertilization and therefore of pregnancy).

– Artificial insemination or artificial fertilization. This step takes place approximately 36 hours after ovulation is triggered. The doctor uses a thin catheter to deposit the sperm directly into the uterus or cervix.

*Disclaimer: results may vary from person to person depending on the case.

  • *Insemination is a painless medical procedure that does not cause any pain or discomfort.
    *Just after the insemination, you will have to lie down for 10 to 30 minutes, after which you will be able to get up and resume a normal life.
    *Pregnancy tests should be performed (15 to 18 days later) to verify if the insemination was successful or not.
