What is the Intrauterine insemination (IUI) timeline?

A simple definition of intrauterine insemination is the introduction of semen into a woman’s uterus via the vagina or cervix by any means other than sexual intercourse. The best-known assisted production technique, in vitro fertilisation (IVF), was invented a mere 40 years ago – and people were using IUI long before that. Intrauterine insemination, also known as artificial insemination, was used in humans as long ago as the 18th century, but techniques and refinements to make it more successful have steadily developed since those early days.
