Ovulation Induction with Intrauterine Insemination

Ovulation induction (OI) is a widely used fertility treatment effective for many women with unexplained infertility, ovulatory issues, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or other causes. At our Center, ovulation induction patients are cared for by an interdisciplinary team including physicians, nurses, and nurse practitioners who understand the needs of  our patients.

Ovulation induction treatments frequently include intrauterine insemination (IUI), a procedure in which a washed sperm sample is placed directly into the uterus on the optimal cycle day to maximize the chance of pregnancy.

For patients without a male partner, donor insemination maybe a viable treatment option. In some cases, little or no medication is required and the natural menstrual cycle is monitored in order to properly time the insemination. The CRM team will assist with the coordination of obtaining donor sperm from an accredited commercial sperm bank.
