Intrauterine insemination in the treatment of female infertility
Intrauterine insemination (IUI), also known as artificial insemination, is a process by which sperm are placed directly inside the uterus.
This method is used if the patient has a low sperm quality or decreased sperm mobility.
You will make IUI in the ovulation period (determined by LH hormone). The sperm will be “washed” in the laboratory conditions that pull out a concentrated amount of healthy sperm. Then the doctor will use a thin catheter into the uterus to insert the sperm.
Commonly, this is a painless procedure. Sometimes women feel discomfort or even vaginal bleeding, however, it is considered to be normal.
