Frequently asked questions & facts

We understand that you have many questions about IUI and how everything will take place in Mexico City. Here are some answers to your questions before going forward with a consultation.

What is IUI and how does it work?
IUI, or Intrauterine Insemination, is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm directly inside a woman's uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.
Who should consider IUI?
IUI is often recommended for couples with unexplained infertility, mild male factor infertility, or women with cervical mucus problems. It's also a viable option for single women or lesbian couples using donor sperm.
What medications are commonly used in IUI treatments?
Patients may use oral medications like Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid) or Letrozole (Femara) to stimulate ovulation, or in some cases, injectable fertility drugs may be used to induce the development of multiple eggs.
How is the timing of IUI determined?
The timing of IUI is crucial and usually coincides with ovulation. It's often determined by monitoring the woman's cycle with ovulation predictor kits, ultrasound, or blood tests to measure hormone levels.
What are the chances of getting pregnant with IUI?
Success rates can vary widely based on factors like age, fertility diagnosis, and whether fertility drugs were used. On average, IUI success rates are about 5-15% per cycle.
Can IUI be used with donor sperm?
Yes, IUI is a common method for those using donor sperm, including single women, lesbian couples, or heterosexual couples with severe male factor infertility.
What should I expect on the day of the IUI procedure?
The IUI procedure is relatively quick and painless, similar to a Pap smear. A speculum is inserted into the vagina, and a catheter is used to place the sperm directly into the uterus. The process usually takes just a few minutes.
Are fertility treatments available to international patients?
Indeed, fertility treatments are readily accessible to international patients, with Dr. Castillo Peláez specializing in serving patients from around the globe.
I am interested, what is the first step?
If you are interested, the very first step is to attend an online consultation with Dr. Castillo Peláez. He will explain all the details of the procedure and answer any questions you may have. It is usually done over Google Meet.
Does Dr. Castillo Peláez speak English?
Yes, absolutely. He speaks both Spanish and English.
What type of stimulation medication will be used?
In order to have a maximum number of follicles and eggs for a fertility procedure, the woman is stimulated by injections of medication to develop multiple follicles. Pergoveris, Gonal-f, Merional and Merapur are popular options that could be prescribed to you. The injections are usually performed by the woman or her partner.
Do fertility medications pose health risks?
Fertility drugs are safe, backed by over 30 years of research and successful application.
Which airport is closest to Dr. Castillo Peláez's clinic?
The Mexico City International Airport (MEX) is about 20 minutes from the clinic.
