Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination is a fertility treatment at ( )that involves inserting washed sperm into the uterus. It is done at the time of ovulation to improve the chances of pregnancy.

On the day of the IUI treatment, your male partner ejaculates a semen sample into a cup at home or in a room at the clinic ( . The sample is given to one of the andrologists, ideally within 30 minutes of it being produced. After getting the sample, the andrologist washes the semen and prepares it for IUI (this takes approximately two hours). Then the washed sperm is put into a thin plastic cathether which is then put into the woman?s uterus through her cervix and the sperm are released.

You will lie down for about 5 to 10 minutes after insemination. You do not need to lie down longer as the cervix is then closed and the sperm will not fall out. You can resume regular activities after the IUI.
