Intrauterine insemination is also called artificial insemination. It is one of the simplest procedures to conceive. In this process, doctors or experts collect and process the sperm in the lab and then place it in the uterine cavity. Before starting this process, some medicines are given to increase the quality of the woman's eggs.

During this, the man's sperm is collected before the woman's ovulation. The best sperm is selected by separating the bad, dead and less mobile sperm from it. After this, this sperm is injected into the woman's uterus. In this process, if the man's sperm is not good or if the woman is single, then a sperm donor is used.

  • In IUI, it is necessary for the woman's report to be normal. Whereas, in IVF, women can try to conceive even if they have any kind of problem.
  • In IUI, sperm count and quality must be good. If this is not the case, then a donor may be required. Whereas, in IVF, one can become a father even after having a low sperm count.
  • In IUI, pregnancy cannot be achieved after menopause. Whereas, in IVF, there remains some possibility of a woman conceiving even after menopause.
  • In IUI, the quality of the embryo is not tested. Whereas, in IVF, the quality of the embryo is tested.
  • The success rate of IVF is higher than that of IUI.
  • IUI is less expensive, so in most cases it is advised that IUI should be done at least three times before IVF. If there is failure in conceiving in this, then IVF should be done only after that.
