Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is one of the most straightforward forms of assisted fertility treatments, the goal of which is to increase the number of sperm that reach and fertilise the egg on their own. It involves placing sperm inside a woman's uterus to facilitate fertilisation. This form of fertility treatment is a less invasive and less expensive option in comparison to in vitro fertilisation.
When is IUI Used
IUI is most commonly used when a partner has a low sperm count or decreased sperm motility. However, it can also be the preferred fertility treatment for any of the following conditions:
Couples whose reasons for subfertility are unknown.
A hostile cervical condition, including cervical mucus difficulties.
Cervical scar tissue from past procedures which may hinder the sperms' ability to enter the uterus.
Abnormality of the cervix.
Couples with reduced sperm count or motility.
