Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or Artificial Insemination as it is more commonly known allows women to achieve pregnancy without sexual intercourse.
Artificial Insemination is the deliberate introduction of sperm into a female's uterus for the purpose of achieving a pregnancy.
The semen analysed prepared by a “washing”, which concentrates the sperm by eliminating unnecessary compounds and leaving the most active sperm. This increases the likely success of the procedure. From there it is inserted with a speculum and catheter.
Artificial insemination may be appropriate in a number of circumstances including low sperm count, sperm abnormalities, hostile cervical mucus and other circumstances where donor sperm is required such as same sex couples or single women.
