Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), also commonly known artificial insemination (AI) is a technique that can help treat certain kinds of infertility in both men and women. IUI is usually recommended to accompany ovulation induction cycles to increase pregnancy chances. When an IUI is performed, the semen, after its seminal plasma has been washed off, is directly injected into the uterus.

When Is IUI Recommended?

When male infertility is a factor, IUIs empirically improve pregnancy rates over regular intercourse. It also improves pregnancy rates if cervical factor infertility is present (i.e. the cervical mucus inactivates semen motility) and in the presence of mildly abnormal semen, which can constitute a case of general male infertility.
