Self-funded intrauterine insemination service 

11/03/2019 00:00 

The Reproductive Medicine Unit (RMU) at UCLH has launched a new self-funded service aimed at women hoping to conceive using intrauterine insemination treatment with their partner’s sperm or donated sperm.

RMU has been running an intrauterine insemination service (IUI) for several years. To date this has been restricted to couples funded for treatment by the NHS and women having treatment with their partner’s sperm.

Single women and same sex couples have not been able to access this service as treatment is not currently funded by the NHS for this patient group. Current guidance requires women in same sex relationships or single women to have six cycles of intrauterine insemination before they can access fertility treatments. Also, some women who wish to have IUI treatment using their partner’s sperm may not be routinely funded by NHS.

We are now offering the opportunity to women to self-fund their IUI treatment in the RMU and receive the same high level of care and service given to NHS-funded patients.

The RMU has consistently received extremely positive feedback from patients and enjoys high levels of success in treatment.

Women or couples wishing to opt for the self-funded service will be seen by dedicated consultants for a comprehensive review, including hormonal profile and ultrasound scan, before starting an IUI cycle if appropriate. All monitoring and procedures will be performed at the Reproductive Medicine Unit.
