IUI: Intrauterine Insemination
What is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)?
IUI or Intrauterine Insemination is a form of artificial insemination. IUI is typically the first fertility treatment a couple will try. This simple procedure is often performed when there is unexplained infertility, endometriosis or irregular ovulation. During this fertility treatment, a catheter enters through the cervix to deposit washed sperm directly into the uterus.

IUI & Sperm Washing
Sperm washing is the separation of sperm cells from seminal fluids. It is done prior to IUI in order to remove dead sperm and chemicals harmful to fertilization. There are three types of sperm washing including the swim-up method which collects sperm as they swim, the density gradient wash method which isolates sperm from debris and the simple wash method which gathers active sperm in a test tube.
