Intrauterine Insemination

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). The second edition of Intrauterine Insemination brings physicians and trainees fully up to date with the latest developments in the technique. Divided into 48 chapters, this comprehensive guide covers every aspect of the procedure, from patient selection and clinical assessment of couples, to ovarian induction, predictors of ovarian response, modulation of sperm motility, and sperm banking. The final sections describe data management issues, sex pre-selection, and regulation of assisted reproductive technologies.
