IUI (Artificial Insemination)

IUI is a relatively straightforward fertility treatment that involves directly inserting concentrated, specially washed sperm into a woman’s uterus at the most fertile point in her cycle to increase the number of sperm that are able to reach and fertilise the egg.

How is IUI performed?

  • The sperm is first concentrated in a centrifuge, and the remainder of the semen is discarded.
  • The drop of fluid containing the concentrated, washed motile sperm is then loaded into a catheter which is passed through the cervix and millions of motile sperm are released into the uterus.
  • The IUI procedure is short and involves minimal discomfort.

Benefits of IUI

  • IUI is the most affordable form of assisted reproduction treatment
  • IUI is a good option for single women and same sex couples who don’t have fertility issues but who need donor sperm
  • There is no egg collection involved in IUI, meaning that there is no invasive procedure and sedation is not required
