Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment where Sperms are placed directly into a woman’s uterus.
During natural conception, Sperms have to travel from the vagina through the cervix, into the uterus, and up to the fallopian tubes. With IUI, Sperms are “washed” and concentrated, and also placed directly into the uterus, which puts them closer to the egg.
This process can increase the likelihood of pregnancy in certain couples who have had difficulty getting pregnant.
