What are iui failure symptoms?

Poor sperm quality

Sperm with low mobility or high DNA fragmentation may not be able to fertilize the egg.

Advanced maternal age

Women above 35 years have reduced fertility which can lead to IUI failure.

Poor egg quality

Just like sperm, the quality of a woman’s egg is crucial for successful fertilization.

Incorrect timing of IUI

Timing is essential in IUI. If the procedure is not done close to ovulation, it may fail.

Underlying medical conditions

Conditions like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, or uncontrolled diabetes can affect IUI success.

Lifestyle factors

Smoking, alcohol consumption, and obesity can negatively impact fertility and the success of IUI.

Use of frozen sperm

While still effective, IUI with frozen sperm can have a lower success rate than with fresh sperm.

Structural issues

Problems with the female reproductive system, like a blocked fallopian tube, can prevent fertilization.

Unexplained infertility

In some cases, doctors can’t pinpoint a specific cause for infertility, which can lead to unsuccessful IUI.

Failed fertilization

Even if both the sperm and egg are healthy, sometimes fertilization just doesn’t occur.
