    IUI Procedure

    The IUI Procedure (Intrauterine Insemination) only takes a few minutes and involves an an instrument called a speculum to be inserted into the woman’s vagina, enabling the walls of the vagina to remain open, just like a smear test. A catheter which is a thin, flexible tube is then placed inside the vagina and guided into the womb. There may be a little discomfort felt during the IUI procedure, however the process is usualy painless. The sperm sample will then be passed through the catheter and into the womb.

    IUI Treatment

    IUI treatment (Intrauterine Insemination) is usually the first treatments used when trying assisted fertility.  It involves directly inserting sperm into a woman’s womb.

    It is a technique in which a sample of prepared sperm (either from the male partner or a sperm donor) is introduced directly into the uterus via the cervix at around the time of ovulation.

    IUI can be done within a natural menstrual cycle or stimulated with fertility drugs to invigorate the ovaries.
