How long does the IUI process last?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 12/08/2019

Counting from the moment of insemination, the duration of the procedure is just 15 minutes plus a rest time of 15-30 minutes. On the contrary, if we consider the entire procedure, including the ovarian stimulation phase, it can be extended up to two months:

  • One month to monitor the cycle using contraceptives
  • Two weeks of ovarian stimulation until the day of ovulation
  • One day for the insemination procedure itself
  • About two weeks (i.e. two-week wait) before taking a pregnancy test

In any case, since we depend on each woman's response to medications as well as her particularities, these time frames may vary slightly.
