Intrauterine insemination – IUI

What is Intrauterine insemination?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization.

In Japan, IUI has been performed for over 60 years.

The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.

IUI provides the sperm an advantage by giving it a head start, but still requires a sperm to reach and fertilize the egg on its own.

In Japan, the term AIH (artificial insemination with husband’s semen) is more commonly used.
