Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a laboratory procedure that involves the extraction of good quality sperm from a sample (provided either by the male partner or a donor), and their placement inside a woman’s uterus. It is also known as artificial insemination.
IUI involves no manipulation of the female’s eggs; it is merely a way of improving the chances of fertilization by introducing fast moving sperms in the uterus of the female.

In Which Cases is it Performed?
- Impotence in male partner
- Ejaculation problems
- Inadequate sperm count
- Low sperm mobility
- Single women looking to have a baby with the help of donor sperms
IUI puts the sperm in a favourable place, but the success of the treatment depends upon the ability of the sperm to reach the fallopian tubes and fertilize the egg on its own.
What Tests are Required?
Before performing the IUI, the female will be checked for her ability to achieve pregnancy.
Ultrasound to check the size of your follicles
Laparoscopy and dye tests to check the patency of fallopian tubes and health of the pelvis
The woman is given some medication to improve egg production and boost her chances of getting pregnant.
The separated semen sample is washed in the lab and directly injected into the uterus with the help of a catheter.
