Intrauterine insemination is a simple, non-invasive and safe initial treatment option, especially in low resource settings for selected group of patients before initiating assisted reproduction technology treatment. A wise selection of patients and timing are key to its success. Detailed assessment of the infertile couple, controlled ovarian stimulation with follicular development monitoring, appropriate processing the seminal fluid, trigger with hCG at a correct time, single IUI in strict aseptic condition followed by 10-15 minutes of immobilization are currently considered vital elements of Intrauterine insemination to improve its outcome. Intrauterine insemination can be considered as a bridge between basic and advanced fertility treatment for selected infertile couples especially in countries with limited resources for assisted reproductive technologies.
