Intrauterine insemination (IUI), also known as artificial insemination, is a fertility treatment that uses a catheter to place washed sperm directly into the uterus. Its aim is to increase the number of sperm reaching the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chances of fertilisation (American Pregnancy Association).
This book is a step-by-step guide to intrauterine insemination (IUI).
Divided into 12 sections, the text begins with detail on counselling, diagnostic work up, and indications of IUI.
The following chapters cover ultrasound monitoring of an ART cycle, stimulation protocol, triggering ovulation, and when and how to administer IUI.
The book concludes with discussion on complications of IUI, factors affecting success, and sperm preparation.
Authored by recognised experts in the field, the text is further enhanced by colour photographs, illustrations and flowcharts.
