What is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a treatment that involves inserting sperm directly into the uterus during the most fertile time in your cycle. This increases the chance that the sperm will fertilize the egg and result in pregnancy.

IUI can be an amazing alternative to IVF if your doctor feels it's right for you based on your unique needs and goals.

How IUI Works

Is IUI right for me?

IUI is an option for:

  • Couples experiencing unexplained infertility, which is when you've been trying to conceive for six months or up to one year, depending on your age, with no success and fertility testing hasn't led to a definitive cause.

  • Lesbian couples and single women with a sperm donor who don’t have needs that require IVF

  • Mild male infertility issues - In this case placing the washed sperm can be more effective than natural conception alone

  • Those experiencing endometriosis, or ovulatory or cervical issues
