Dear Esther david

Simply put the IUI procedure involves the ‘washing’ of sperm in a laboratory in order to rid the sperm of antibodies as well as to enhance the overall quality of the sperm. This is then placed by means of a fine catheter into the uterine cavity, which also overcomes the problem of antisperm antibodies in the cervical mucous (canal of the mouth of the womb). The IUI treatment will only be of value if the tubes are patent and also should be done at the time of ovulation.
