Definitions for "IUI"
Intra-Uterine Insemination, a method of artificial insemination. This method places washed semen directly into the uterus by passing a catheter through the cervical canal. More sperm cells can reach the uterus and consequently more sperm is available for fertilization. Washing the sperm cells is necessary since otherwise prostaglandins in the seminal fluid could cause the uterus to cramp, expelling the sperm and causing pain. Proper timing of insemination is important with IUI. Studies suggest that IUI offers a higher likelihood of pregnancy than ICI. Prewashed sperm usually costs more.
A medical procedure that involves placing sperm into a woman's uterus to facilitate fertilization. IUI is not considered an ART procedure because it does not involve the manipulation of eggs.
Intra Uterine Insemination. Insertion of a prepared sperm sample into the uterus through the cervix.
