What Is IUI ?

The artificial insemination technique known as intrauterine insemination (IUI) is used to treat infertility. When your ovary releases one or more eggs for fertilization, concentrated and cleaned sperm are immediately injected into your uterus. The intended result of intrauterine insemination is for the sperm to travel into the fallopian tube, fertilize an egg that is already mature, and stimulate pregnancy.

Depending on the underlying causes of infertility, IUI can be timed to coincide with your regular cycle or with fertility drugs.
