Artificial Insemination or Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI)
Before the development of Artificial Insemination (Intra-Uterine Insemination, IUI) sperm were placed directly into the vagina/cervix. It was a simpler procedure but not as successful. Today, Artificial Insemination eliminates the vast distance sperm usually travel, thereby facilitating the process of fertilization in the fallopian tubes. This infertility treatment is a form of artificial insemination in which washed and concentrated sperm are transferred into the uterus. Insemination usually will occur at approximately the same time as the ovaries release an egg, or eggs, to be fertilized.
In many cases, doctors recommend artificial insemination as an initial treatment for infertility.
