IUI

IUI, or intrauterine insemination, is a relatively simple fertility treatment. This can be done with or without fertility drugs. The procedure itself involves the transfer of specially washed semen directly into the uterus via a thin catheter.

You may know the IUI by the more commonly used term artificial insemination (AI). IUI and AI are one.

Indications

IUI treatment may be recommended for one of the following situations:

  • Male infertility
  • Hostile cervical mucus
  • Unexplained infertility
  • If treatment with fertility drugs alone does not succeed
  • If a sperm donor is used
  • If sexual pain makes intercourse impossible
