Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)is a procedure in which semen is artificially inserted into the uterus to achieve fertilization. One of the aims of IUI is to increase the number of sperms reaching the fallopian tubes and thus increase the chances of pregnancy. The idea is to give the sperms an advantage in its journey to reach the egg and fertilize it. IUI can be used as a treatment when infertility is due to the inability of the sperm to fertilize the egg either due to poor quality or quantity. It is a less expensive and safer option compared to IVF and can be tried before venturing into IVF. IUI can be used as a treatment option in cases of unexplained infertility, hostile cervical conditions, or ejaculation dysfunction.

The IUI procedure involves the following steps:
Some women experience cramping during the procedure and light bleeding afterward. You may have to lie down for about 15 to 45 minutes to give the sperms a chance to work.

If IUI is performed each month, success rates may be close to 20% per cycle, depending on variables such as female age, reason for infertility, usage of drugs and other variables.
