Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is the flushing of specially washed sperm through a thin flexible tube (catheter) directly into the uterus.
Artificial insemination (AI) is the placement of sperm into a woman's cervix or vagina. The sperm then travel into the uterus and fallopian tubes, where they may fertilize an egg.
See a picture of the female reproductive system.
Insemination procedures can improve your chances of conceiving a pregnancy, especially when combined with superovulation treatment.
