Intrauterine insemination is a treatment done to facilitate fertilization. In this method, the sperm is placed inside the uterus at the time of ovulation, and it helps the sperms to reach the egg faster. It reduces the traveling time of sperms, and it makes fertilization easier. It is usually done in couples having problems with fertility.
