At Home IUI

At Home IUI Madison Wisconsin

Affirming Care, From the Start

Unmedicated, low-intervention Intrauterine Insemination (IUI),

right in the comfort of your own home.

Families can be created in so many ways, and I enthusiastically offer one of them.  I provide culturally relevant and affirming midwifery care for those who want a more individualized and intimate experience from their fertility journey.

95% of most individuals become pregnant with IUI within 4 cycles. 

We can schedule as many IUI's as you would like in a cycle surrounding peak fertility.  Some people also choose to do a mixture of ICI/IVI independently (I recommend the Mosie Baby kit) and IUI, which is also an option.

Intrauterine Insemination can be a good option for someone who is trying to conceive without known fertility issues, and can be a helpful resource for:

  • Single individuals

  • Queer/LGBTQIA+ couples

  • Poly relationships/numerous co-parents

  • Traditional surrogates (surrogacy that uses the surrogate's egg, which is a legal option in Wisconsinand intended parents

  • Couples who are wanting a more statistically likely way of becoming pregnant

On Call for You:

Timing is the biggest factor in conception success rates.  IUI needs to occur within 24 hours of when ovulation occurs.  The cycle may be a naturally occurring ovulation cycle or can involve the use of oral medications like Clomid© or Letrozole© to stimulate egg development.  With your tracking, we will decide on the best time to do IUI based on the number of IUI's you would like to do in a cycle.

During your cycle you will have access to me during daytime hours to ask questions, and at all hours if you need to let me know when ovulation occurs.

FAQ

What's the difference between IVI/ICI/IUI?

  • IVI:  ejaculate is placed in the vaginal canal, sperm doesn’t need to be washed.  Can be done by anyone with the right tools.

  • ICI: ejaculate is placed in the vaginal canal in/at the cervix, sperm doesn’t need to be washed.  Can be done by anyone with the right tools.

  • IUI: requires washed sperm which is placed directly into the uterus with a thin/flexible sterile catheter.  Although it isn’t complicated, it should not be performed by untrained medical professionals due to increased risks of infection

Caring

FAQ

Can my partner be involved?

Absolutely!  Some people doing IUI are single by choice with a support person present, some step into IUI with a partner or co-parent, and sometimes they are a traditional surrogate moving through IUI with an intended parent(s).  However you are stepping into your fertility journey, your people can be involved in whatever way you and they would like to be involved.

FAQ

Do I need to have the sperm sample washed?

For IUI, yes. If you have acquired your sample from a sperm bank, it's already been washed.  If you are using a fresh sample, I can wash the sperm sample.

For IVI/ICI the cervical mucus will naturally filter the sample.

FAQ

Does a sperm sample need to be washed?

For IUI, yes.  If you have acquired a frozen sample from a sperm bank, it can be washed before being sent to you, or I can wash the donor sperm.  If you are using a fresh sample from a known donor, I can wash the sperm.

If planning on doing IVI or ICI, cervical mucus naturally filters sperm.
