Intra Uterine Insemination is the process where artificial insemination of prepared sperm of husband/donor is done in the uterine cavity for conception in a planned cycle at the time of planned ovulation.
It is done in cases where the tubes are functional as well as the patent. This can be performed in a natural cycle or with artificial hormone stimulation.If the couple is diagnosed with unexplained infertility, cervical mucus problems, minor sperm abnormalities or other male disorders.
It is also a cheaper solution for azoospermic males who cannot afford ICSI with TESA. They can have artificial insemination with donor semen.
