IUI (Intra Uterine Insemination)
Intra Uterine Insemination is a treatment used for treating infertility. It involves placing male sperms directly inside a women’s uterus to facilitate fertilisation.
The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperms that reach the fallopian tubes thus increasing the chances of fertilisation. Women with severe endometriosis or a history of pelvic adhesions are advised not to undergo this treatment.
