Reasons for IUI failure:

decrease in egg quality

Low-quality eggs may have chromosome abnormalities. Due to this, the eggs are not able to divide after fertilization and pregnancy does not take place. In such circumstances, the doctor may recommend IVF treatment if required.


After the age of 40, the success rate of IUI is almost non-existent. If the egg quality is good and the quality is also good, then women up to the age of 35 can easily get pregnant through IUI. After 35 years of age, the chances of IUI being successful gradually decrease.

decreased sperm quality

In order to fertilize the egg, all the qualities like quantity, mobility, shape etc. of the sperm should be good. If the sperm quality of the male is poor then the sperm will fail to fertilize the egg. In such a situation, doctors recommend opting for IVF procedure for treatment.

process delay

Sperm stays in the fallopian tubes for 12 to 24 hours during the time of ovulation. After this stipulated time the egg will break and come out through the vaginal tract along with bleeding. If the egg does not get sperm at the right time, then IUI treatment is sure to fail. To avoid this, you must reach the fertility clinic at the time prescribed by the doctor and have accurate knowledge of your ovulation.
