What is the difference between at home insemination and IUI?

Artificial insemination is a procedure in which sperm is placed near the cervix or directly in the uterus in order to make fertilization easier. Where the sperm is deposited will depend on which kind of artificial insemination you choose to have.
You can either have artificial insemination performed in a doctor’s office, or you can do it yourself at home. So what is the difference between the two?

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves frequent monitoring of hormone levels and follicle growth throughout the cycle. However, it is not as controlled as more advanced reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization (IVF), therefore patients must be informed and responsible when pursuing IUI. They should understand the risks and know when it is appropriate to cancel an IUI cycle.
