Unexplained infertility and IUI at emBIO Medical Centre in Greece

Treatment: Intrauterine insemination (IUI) unstimulated
Provider: emBIO Medical Centre
Date: Jul 2017

Jason is now 38 and I am 35 and we had been trying to conceive for two years.

I was a bit on the overweight side, with a higher BMI, but I had lost 10 kilos over 12 months. Jason quit smoking to improve both his health and our chances of conceiving and yet, we still had no success so we called EmBIO on the recommendation of Jason’s sister who lives in Athens with her family.

On the first appointment with our fertility specialist, Dr Paraschos, we were asked to have blood tests done in order to check my husband’s sperm and see if my cycles were ovulatory. Turned out they were longer, but this could have been due to my higher BMI. The tests confirmed that I was ovulating and in few words potentially fertile with no signs of other risks. Jason’s semen sample was normal too. Our doctor didn’t determine any other causes so we were facing an unexplained infertility. He explained that it is common and the cause of up to 35% of infertility problems and so suggested IUI which apparently is less invasive and a good starting point for situations like ours.

Our specialist suggested we try up to two IUI cycles before thinking of more progressive treatments.And so we opted for IUI and following the second cycle, I was pregnant!!  We now are two very happy people with an amazing healthy baby boy in our lives. Thank you to everyone at EmBIO for your help!
