Intrauterine insemination

What is IUI?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves inserting a sample of sperm into the uterus. A catheter is used to give sperm a more direct path to the fallopian tubes, where a mature egg will be waiting for fertilization.

It’s a form of artificial insemination that can be done using a male partner’s sperm or donor sperm. Before the procedure, a sperm sample is collected and concentrated to isolate healthy, highly-motile sperm to increase the chances of fertilization.

The IUI Process

Our fertility specialists may recommend IUI before other treatments, such as IVF. This is especially true for those experiencing unexplained fertility or those unable to conceive on their own, such as LGBTQ+ and single individuals.

IUI can also bypass several forms of male infertility. During intercourse, most of the sperm will not make it to the fallopian tubes. A male partner with a low sperm count or low sperm motility may have even less of a chance of successful fertilization through natural conception.

To ensure this is the right treatment for you, we will recommend fertility testing. Our highly skilled fertility specialists approach each patient’s case with personalized recommendations and trusted treatments to help you grow your family.
