Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
IUI stands for in intrauterine insemination. It’s also sometimes called Artificial insemination, alternative insemination, or donor insemination. IUI works by inserting sperm cells into the uterus at the time of ovulation. It is helping the sperm get closer to your egg, it reduces the time and distance of sperm reach the uterus and making it easier to fertilize the egg.
Steps of IUI
Before the IUI, the sperm sample will need to be prepared where the semen sample is washed in the lab to separate the semen from the seminal fluid. Then the doctor inserts a thin, flexible tube through the cervix into the uterus. They use a small syringe to insert the sperm through the tube directly into the uterus. If a sperm fertilizes an egg, and the fertilized egg implants in the lining of the uterus then the pregnancy happens.
