Interauterine Insemination (IUI)

INTRAUTERINE INSEMINATION (IUI)
IUI is used for male factors, cervical mucus problems and unexplained infertility. IUI requires careful timing so that it is done close to ovulation. An injection of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) may be used to trigger ovulation and time the insemination. The husband collects the sperm sample in the andrology laboratory 2- 2.5 hours prior to the actual insemination. The sperm are delivered to the uterus by means of a small catheter. No pain medication is required.
