Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

IUI involves placing sperm directly into the uterus with a fine tube at time of ovulation in order to facilitate fertilisation.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) involves placing a specially prepared and washed sperm sample directly into the uterus around the time of ovulation. This procedure is often combined with fertility medications in order to ensure ovulation at the desired time
