What is IUI?
IUI or Intrauterine insemination is a fertility treatment which involves a laboratory procedure to separate fast-moving sperm from low motile or non-moving sperm and placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The main goal of IUI is to increase the chance of fertilization by increasing the number of sperms that reach the fallopian tubes. This can be performed with your partner’s sperm or donor sperm (known as donor insemination). You can approach Vijaya Fertility clinic because it's one of the Best Infertility Center in Kerala.

- The sperm will be separated from the other components of the semen and concentrated in a small volume by using a process called Sperm processing or Sperm Washing.
- The cervical area is gently cleaned and a speculum is placed in the vagina.
- The highly motile sperm of washed specimen is placed either in the cervix or uterine cavity using a sterile flexible catheter.
