Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

IUI, medically known as Intrauterine Insemination, is a simple form of fertility treatment performed in our centre (in Kandivali). The doctor can perform it either with or without medication. The medical modus operandi includes the procedure of transferring semen to the uterus through a thin catheter. However, before proceeding with it, the doctor will need to wash and concentrate on the semen.

This way, it will be much more effective and powerful. A doctor will most possibly perform IUI treatment during ovulation. But, if he/she has to do so before the same, then they might use the drugs.
