Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine insemination (IUI), also known as artificial insemination (AI), is a common fertility treatment where sperm are placed directly into the uterine cavity, near the time of ovulation. An IUI procedure is used to treat several causes of infertility
IUI is indicated for male factor infertility (such as a low sperm count or low sperm motility) and in instances where the sperm and cervical mucus are incompatible, as this procedure bypasses the cervix.
For women who don’t ovulate on a regular basis, IUI procedures increase pregnancy rates when coupled with ovulation induction. IUI is also indicated for couples using donor sperm to achieve pregnancy.
RMAPA consistently has Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) success rates higher than the national average.
