IUI is timed so that sperm are placed into the uterus on the day an egg is released from an ovary. To do this, medication is used to stimulate ovulation and then the ovaries are monitored with ultrasound to determine when ovulation will occur.
IUI can be helpful for:
Couples experiencing infertility due to medical conditions (e.g., endometriosis or low sperm count or quality).
Couples with unexplained infertility.
Same-sex female couples using donor sperm.
Single women wishing to start a family with donor sperm.
