Sometimes the sperm does not reach the correct place, the inside of the uterus. This can be due to a number of factors. In addition, sometimes there are mild abnormalities in the number of sperm or in the way that the sperm move. By concentrating the best sperm and placing them directly into the uterus, we can maximize your chances of becoming pregnant. This is done in the office and is generally a pain free procedure that takes just a few minutes.
Although the actual insemination takes just a few minutes, preparation of the sperm can take 30-45 minutes prior. A specimen can be brought from home in a sterile container or produced at our office. You will need to rest for a few minutes after the procedure but otherwise you can follow your normal routine.
