Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination using sperm is the oldest and simplest method of the infertility treatment.

Intrauterine insemination is the oldest and simplest method of infertility treatment.

It requires that certain conditions are met: healthy sperm in a man, so-called normspermia, then passable fallopian tubes, and proven ovulation in a woman. A good reaction to the treatment stimulation in the woman is presupposed when a sufficient number of oocytes for fertilization are retrieved.

Unfortunately, our society has recently experienced both a significant decrease in sperm quality and an increase in the incidence of non-functioning ovaries in women. As such, the success of IUI as a treatment for infertility is becoming smaller and smaller. Intrauterine insemination is recommended mainly to couples whose natural effort to conceive is not successful but no cause of infertility is discovered.
