How does Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) work? 

Before intrauterine insemination, ovulation-stimulating medications might be utilized, in which case cautious checking will be important to decide when the eggs are mature. The IUI method will then be performed around the best time of ovulation, most commonly around 24-36 hours after the surge in LH hormone that shows ovulation will happen as soon as possible.

It generally takes 6-12 days for fertilization after the IUI procedure. One can wait for 2 weeks to test the same as they would wait with the natural process.

A healthy sperm count is necessary for higher success rate of IUI treatment. It should be more than 40 million sperms per ejaculation.
