IUI Intra Uterine Insemination

What is an IUI(Intra Uterine Insemination)?


Intra-uterine Insemination (IUI) involves injecting sperm directly into a woman's uterus through a narrow catheter. This procedure is typically performed using the partner's sperm; however, donor sperm may also be used. A well timed IUI can be very effective depending on the sperm count and motility, and on the time the egg is released from the ovary. The insemination itself causes little to no discomfort, but results can vary depending on each individual.
