Artificial Insemination of Husband (AIH)
Artificial insemination (AIH) is one of a number of infertility treatments available at Pro Vita Specialist Hospital. Artificial insemination or AIH is a basic step towards fertility treatments. This fertility treatment can be done using your husband or partner's sperm or sperm from a donor. Following intercourse, only a small proportion of the sperm ascend the female genital tract.

The patient is able to resume normal activity immediately following the AIH procedure
