What is artificial insemination?

Artificial insemination is more commonly referred to as an IUI (intrauterine insemination). Typically, this procedure is recommended for couples with unexplained infertility, minimal male factor infertility, and women with cervical mucus problems. The process uses the male partner or donor’s sperm, washing and treating the sperm, and then injecting it into the woman during the time of ovulation. Think of as putting the sperm in a taxi cab and delivering it right to the door of where it needs to be! Read more about IUI.
