Clinic details: The Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary provides a wealth of specialist healthcare treatments which include an artificial insemination service for patients in need of fertility treatment. Artificial insemination is a technique which involves procuring a semen sample from a male partner or from a donor and placing that sample within the female tract, usually in her cervix or uterus, where sperm can do what they do best and make their way to an egg to fertilise it and hence conceive a child. The treatment is extremely effective for couples where male factor fertility issues are present, particularly premature ejaculation or impotence. At the Royal Infirmary the particular form insemination used is intrauterine insemination, a technique where semen is placed within the uterus (the womb) to great effect. The treatment is offered with and without the stimulating effects of fertility drugs which encourage egg production, albeit with some potential side effects, most notably Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. Whether stimulated or unstimulated IUI is used depends on your particular situation and your doctor's assessment of your condition.
