What is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a type of fertility treatment that involves inserting sperm directly into a woman’s uterus using a thin, flexible catheter. This procedure is designed to increase the chances of pregnancy by placing the sperm closer to the fallopian tubes where fertilization occurs.

IUI is a relatively simple and low-invasive procedure that is often recommended for couples who are facing infertility issues due to factors such as low sperm count, cervical mucus problems, or unexplained infertility. In some cases, IUI may also be recommended for single women or same-sex couples who wish to conceive using donor sperm.
