Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

At our fertility clinics in Greater Vancouver, BC and Edmonton, AB, you can always expect personalized care, no matter how common a treatment is. Our team is committed to helping all aspiring parents find the approach that’s best for their specific reproductive needs.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a minimally invasive, common first-line fertility treatment for many aspiring parents. The process involves a specially prepared concentrated semen sample being placed directly into the uterus to maximize the chances of fertilization; this reduces the distance that the sperm must travel to meet the egg for fertilization. IUI is typically performed in women receiving ovarian stimulation with letrozole or follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). These treatments require extra monitoring to optimize the chances of pregnancy.
