Intrauterine Insemination is a simple procedure which involves placing specially prepared sperm (semen) directly inside a woman’s uterus to increase the chances of natural conception.
IUI is a gentle and low-cost treatment protocol women can choose before moving on to the process of IVF. It is an alternative fertility treatment where sperm cells are placed directly inside the uterus to promote fertility. Commonly referred to as artificial insemination, IUI is often prescribed as a first treatment option for unexplained infertility when regular, ovulation-timed sexual intercourse has failed. We may recommend three to four IUI cycles before In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is considered.
During your initial consultation, the doctor may recommend diagnostic testing to determine if you are suffering from a structural reproductive problem. Once structural problems are ruled out, we will decide upon a customized IUI treatment plan.
