IUI

IUI (Intrauterine Insemination)

This procedure is among the least invasive ART treatments. In this procedure a sperm sample is introduced into the woman’s uterus using a catheter, during a natural, induced or stimulated cycle. The success rate is dependent on the woman’s age and is approximately 8-15%.

Depending on your situation you may decide to use sperm of your male partner or donor. If you are using your partner's sperm, he will be asked to produce on the day of your IUI procedure.
