Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

A cost-effective way for couples to boost their chances of getting pregnant.

What is Intrauterine Insemination?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a popular and often-effective infertility solution. IUI grew in popularity as an alternative treatment to a series of antiquated techniques such as the use of antibiotics and insemination in the cervical mucus – both of which were largely ineffective. IUI comes as a relief to countless couples struggling to get pregnant without intervention. IUI is successful in treating low-quality mucus or sperm, as well as cases where the sperm quantity is insufficient.

How Successful is IUI?

Couples who don’t want to leave their pregnancy up to chance often use IUI to get pregnant and can increase their chances of conception ten-fold.
