Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
IUI is usually the next step to take after you have been unable to get pregnant via intercourse with a partner. On the day of the insemination, the sperm is prepared by our andrology team two hours prior to the insemination, so in the event that your partner will be providing the sample, he will have his own appointment time. The IUI is performed by placing a small tube filled with the sperm through the vagina, past the cervix, directly into the uterus. You may experience some mild cramping for a few minutes or so, but the actual insemination takes no more than 5 minutes.
