Intrauterine Insemination

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a relatively simple procedure done to treat mild to moderate male factor abnormalities in conjunction with other treatments for infertility. The male partner produces a sample just as with the semen analysis; however, on this visit the sample is manipulated to ensure a highly motile fraction of sperm is transferred. These sperm are then placed in a small amount of liquid culture media and transferred into the uterus utilizing a small soft plastic catheter. The insemination itself is painless and very similar to a pap smear examination for the female partner.

At JCRM, we can perform IUIs seven days a week. We perform one IUIs  after hCG injection (ovulation trigger shot).

For patients pursuing donor insemination, this is the preferred method of transfer of the sperm. A Pregnancy test is then performed approximately 15 days after the insemination.
