Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is one of the simpler treatments and is usually the first step in infertility treatment for couples with unexplained infertility, mild male factor infertility, a cervical factor, and irregular or absent ovulation. IUI may be recommend in cases where donor sperm is needed. IUI involves placing sperm that have been washed and concentrated directly inside the woman’s uterus. This procedure increases the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes thereby increasing the chances of a successful pregnancy. Before a decision is made about whether or not IUI is right for you, the physicians of Western Fertility Institute will perform standard infertility testing.
