IUI (artificial insemination)

IUI (Artificial Insemination)

Artificial insemination within a New Jersey fertility office usually includes an IUI (intrauterine insemination). IUI is an office procedure that involves the collection of a semen sample, the washing of the semen sample to remove the semen component, the resuspension of the sperm in a buffered inert medium (often a modified human tubal fluid), and the placement of the washed sperm sample into the woman’s uterus using a thin flexible catheter.

The IUI procedure is relatively inexpensive (generally 200-400 dollars), painless (sometimes slight cramping may occur), and risk free (minimal bleeding and cramping may occur, infection is very rare, and trauma to the uterus is also rare).

IUI (artificial insemination) is an effective treatment when there is a mild to moderate male factor (abnormality in the semen analysis), difficulty completing sexual intercourse (erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction), female domestic partners, an abnormal postcoital test (sperm mucus interaction problem including hostile mucus), or in conjunction with ovulation enhancing fertility drugs (clomiphene citrate = clomid or menotropins including Bravelle or Menopur).
