Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a treatment we prescribe when there is unexplained infertility or a mild to moderate sperm problem. During treatment, the male partner provides a semen specimen on the day that the woman’s egg is released. We perform a laboratory procedure to separate the active sperm from the inactive sperm and seminal fluid. We place this concentrated volume of sperm in the uterus using a thin catheter that fits easily through the cervix.
