Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Dr. Celso Silva and Dr. Sharon Jaffe talk about Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), more commonly known as Artificial Insemination. IUI is the process by which a specially prepared semen sample is inserted into the uterus via the cervix for the purpose of achieving pregnancy. This procedure is used to improve pregnancy rates and can as much as double the success rate of that of a couple who elects to do nothing. The cost of an IUI procedure is approximately $1000 vs. the $10,000 - $15,000 it costs for an IVF procedure.
