IUI (Intrauterine Insemination)

Intrauterine insemination is a fertility procedure in which sperm are washed, concentrated, and injected directly into a woman’s uterus. This procedure increases the number of sperm in the fallopian tubes, where fertilization takes place.

Benefits and Success Rates of IUI

The success rates of super ovulation (from hormone treatment) with IUI are between 5 and 20 percent per cycle (depending on the woman’s age and egg quality) provided that the male partner’s sperm count is within normal limits and the female’s tubes are healthy.

Doctors might try three cycles of IUI, and if these are not successful, recommend more advanced methods such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF).
