Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination is the process of placing a concentrated sample of sperm into the uterus. It is done at the time of ovulation to improve the chances of pregnancy.

Important notice about IUI – Posted November 10 2017

WHEN TO CONSIDER IUI

For IUI to be successful, at least one fallopian tube that is open and healthy is required.

IUI may help you if:

  • You have unexplained infertility
  • You are using¬†donor sperm to conceive
  • You have had previous surgery on the cervix that makes it hard for the sperm to pass through the cervix to the uterus and tubes (for example, a trachelectomy or cone biopsy).
  • You have a partner who has low sperm count, motility (swimming), and/or morphology (shape). IUI is often recommended when the total number of swimming sperm in a semen sample is between 5 and 20 million/mL. A sperm count above 20 million/mL is considered normal.
  • You have a partner who has normal sperm parameters but who is unable to ejaculate into the vagina (for example due to dyspareunia, if either person has a disability, or if there is erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, or other such condition)
