Yes: Iui is the acronym for intrauterine insemination. Sperm is ejaculated- washed-concentrated and then introduced with a thin catheter-the size of a small straw into the uterine cavity (no more uncomfortable than a pap smear). This gives almost a two times greater likelihood of conception when compared to timed intercourse. Conception can be achieved , but u want assure ovulation on good the tube.
