This medication is often used with IUI treatment to bring forth the best result during fertilization. During IUI treatment, a male’s sperm (after washing by the special technique) is placed into the female’s uterus to facilitate easy fertilization. Sperms are placed into the uterus at the time of female’s ovulation timing; this is done in order to have easy and smooth insemination & fertilization step. IUI treatment ensures that the increased quantity of sperm reach top of the female’s uterus and the fallopian tubes.

IUI with Clomid medication facilitates the possibility of successful fertilization by getting best quantity and quality of the sperm.

IVF is the most effective ART treatment to get rid of unexplained infertility cause. Live birth rates among women (suffering with unexplained infertility), who have undergone ART methodology are about 55-65%, again the success depends on female partner’s age and her eggs quality.

We can say that pregnancy rate using IVF medication is three times higher than IUI with Clomid. Yes! IVF is quite expensive and invasive process comparing with non ART techniques but it gives a far better result in solving any of the infertility cause. If the couple has proceeded their age above 38, then skipping IUI with Clomid and choosing IVF straight will be the best choice.
