Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is the
flushing of sperm directly into the uterus. This is done through a thin, flexible tube (catheter).
Artificial insemination (AI) is the placement
of sperm into a woman's cervix or vagina. The sperm then travel into the uterus and fallopian tubes, where they may fertilize an egg.
