A thickened cervix can prevent sperm from reaching the egg thereby decreasing the chances of conception.IUI bypasses your cervix, depositing sperm directly into your uterus and increasing the number of sperm available to meet the awaiting egg.

Age of the female partner
Age is an important factor to be considered while recommending a patient for IUI treatment. Top fertility experts consider IUI as a first-line treatment for age-related infertility because fertility medications are used to stimulate egg production before the treatment. However, higher age can negatively affect IUI outcome. Research has shown that the rates of IUI success are lower for people older than 40.

Success and IUI
The success of an IUI procedure depends upon a number of factors such as the age of the partners, type of fertility problem, and any pre-existing medical conditions. However, in most cases, IUI yields a success of around 10-20% and even with certain pre-existing conditions can yield around 8-16% success with the use of proper fertility treatment.
