IVF and Advanced Fertility Treatment
Intrauterine Insemination
What is it?
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure that involves placing washed and prepared sperm directly inside women's womb to facilitate fertilization. The procedure is often combined with fertility medication to increase the chances of pregnancy.

The goal is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and up the chance of fertilization accordingly.
How does it work?
The IUI procedure is quite simple and takes only a few minutes.

A washed semen sample will be injected through a catheter into the uterus. For unexplained infertility, larger volume of fluids will be used to maximize the possibility of pregnancy.
When is it used?
This simple, inexpensive procedure will be repeated monthly. It is an effective treatment especially for following conditions:
  • Unexplained infertility
  • Low sperm count
  • A hostile cervic condition
  • Couple's immunological abnormalities
  • Decreased sperm mobility
