Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) Directory

Artificial insemination is a procedure that can treat male and female infertility. In intrauterine insemination, the man's sperm are directly inserted into the woman's uterus. This prevents any complications the sperm may have in reaching the uterus. IUI is the most common form of artificial insemination. This may be a good choice when the man's sperm count is low or when the woman has endometriosis.
