How much sperm is used for IUI?

For IUI treatment we recommend using 1 x IUI MOT10 straw or higher per cycle. If your fertility clinic consent, it is also possible to use ICI sperm. For treatment with ICI sperm, we recommend using 4 x ICI MOT5, 2 x ICI MOT10 or 1 x ICI MOT20 straw or higher, per cycle. Always consult your clinic for advice before you place your order.

When ordering donor sperm for IUI treatment, we recommend you make a reservation for extra straws to make sure that you have enough sperm from your favorite donor.
