IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) is a procedure where the sperm is placed inside the woman's reproductive tract via technological methods, such as a catheter, when where is donor sperm, if there's a low sperm count, if there are issues with the woman's cervix, or if the couple is struggling with infertility.

Before insemination, the sperm is washed and concentrated for better chances of fertilizing an egg. This is often used with superovulation medicine to increase the number of available eggs.

The IUI method is much less expensive than IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) because IVF has multiple steps that require different drugs and treatment during each step.
