Insemination (IUI intrauterine Insemination)

In homologous insemination, the washed and concentrated sperm from the partner are injected into the uterine cavity via a fine catheter through the cervix. This reduces the distance the sperm have to travel to meet the fertile egg. Insemination is generally painless and takes only a few minutes. The method is used in the case of cervical sterility (sperm cannot move through the cervical mucus), if sperm quality is limited, in the event of male sexual dysfunction or unexplained infertility. It may be combined with hormone stimulation in advance.
