Once the ovulation date is confirmed by an ultrasound, the husband provides sperm sample through masturbation and is then processed in the laboratory. The highest quality sperm is selected and injected into the uterus through a catheter where they are left to fertilize the eggs naturally.
This process is a painless, non-invasive procedure. Once the sperm is injected, after 10-15 minutes of rest, you may go home. For those who has induced their ovulation, hCG injection may be given to increase the chance of becoming pregnant.
