Intrauterine insemination

male fertility


IUI (also known as Intrauterine Insemination), can be an option of fertility treatment.


What is IUI?

IUI is a minimally invasive, and relatively cost effective, assisted conception option. During this procedure, a prepared sample of sperm is inserted directly into the uterus to increase the changes of pregnancy.

You can improve your chances of success with IUI by first optimising your reproductive health. 

When is IUI recommended?

IUI is a suitable treatment option for heterosexual couples, same-sex female couples, and single women who do not have any serious underlying fertility issues. IUI would not be suitable for patients with damage or blockage to the fallopian tubes or with severe male factor infertility.

What happens during IUI?

IUI can either follow the natural rhythm of the female partner’s menstrual cycle or use medications to track and plan the treatment. When the female partner is most fertile, a prepared sample of sperm is inserted directly into the uterus using a thin catheter. The sperm can be provided by the male partner or a sperm donor. IUI bypasses the vagina and cervix to try and increase the chances of successful pregnancy.
