What is artificial insemination?

ANSWER

Artificial insemination is when a doctor puts sperm directly into a woman's cervix, fallopian tubes, or uterus. The most common method is called intrauterine insemination (IUI), when a doctor puts the sperm in the uterus. This makes the trip shorter for the sperm and gets around any obstacles.
