In brief: Insemination

Intrauterine insemination is when the sperm is washed and is subsequently placed in the uterus with a small catheter so that it's closer to the egg for fertilization to occur.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI), also sometimes called “artificial insemination’, involves placement of sperm following separation from seminal fluid into the uterine cavity. An IUI is useful for women who have structural problems, when the cervical mucus is unreceptive, when donor sperm are required, when the male partner’s semen contains very low numbers of sperm, or when unexplained infertility exists in both partners.

Iui is an insemination where the sperm is treated and injected inside the uterus via the cervix.
