Also known as artificial insemination, Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI) is often the first procedure in a fertility plan. It is relatively simple and painless. IUI may be a suitable for problems relating to sperm or in cases of ovulatory disorder or mild endometriosis. The procedure can be performed using a donor’s sperm.
Generally preferred over vaginal and cervical insemination, IUI insures a higher sperm count entering the female reproductive tract, thus increasing the chances of fertilization.
