Two of the most popular and demanded fertility treatments are In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI). It’s common for patients to get a little confused about what each one involves and how they are different from one another.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a type of artificial insemination that involves depositing the sperm directly into the uterus. The patient is subjected to mild ovarian stimulation; then the sperm swim towards the fallopian tubes, where fertilization occurs.
