Intrauterine Insemination


Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a process that inserts purified sperm into the uterus after ovulation stimulations. First, we purify sperm by centrifuge and dissolve the pellet in the artificial culture medium. The sperm is directly inserted into the uterine cavity through a catheter. The process takes about 5-10 minutes without anesthesia, and the patient needs to lie flat for 15 minutes after operation.

We recommend IVF for the case of severe male infertility, blocked fallopian tubes, older infertile women, or other special cases (such as endometriosis). 


Applicable patients :

  1. Low sperm counts (less than 20 million sperm counts per ejaction) and poor sperm motility.

  2. Unexplained infertility, individual/couple who still fails to conceive after various treatments.
