What is IUI?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure that involves placing sperm inside a woman's uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization. Sperm sample is washed and prepared in the clinical laboratory allowing the separation and concentration of motile spermatozoa in relatively small volumes. Therefore, physicians/gynecologists deliver high numbers of spermatozoa into the woman's uterine cavity by using an IUI catheter. This procedure in combination with ovulation induction has further increased the chance of achieving a pregnancy.

IUI may be selected as a fertility treatment with any of the following conditions:

- Unexplained infertility
- Idiopathic infertility
- Cervical abnormality
- Sexual dysfunction
- Requirement of donor sperm
- Low sperm count
- Decreased sperm motility
