Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) Audio (En español)

Also known as: Artificial Insemination

A medical procedure used to help a woman become pregnant. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) involves placing sperm directly in a woman's uterus the day after ovulation. For a discordant couple in which the HIV-infected partner is female, IUI is the most effective way to reduce the risk of HIV transmission when trying to conceive.
