What is intrauterine insemination and how is it used to treat female infertility?

Intrauterine insemination. For this procedure, after semen gets rinsed with a special solution, a doctor puts it in your uterus when you're ovulating. It's sometimes done while you're taking meds that help trigger the release of an egg.
