Egg fertilization in Fallopian tube

In intrauterine insemination (IUI) procedures, egg fertilization by sperm occurs in the Fallopian tubes. Once the sperm sample has been inserted in the uterus, sperm have to swim on their own to the tubes, where the egg will be waiting to be fertilized.

For all these reasons, a crucial requirement for a woman to be eligible for IUI is that she has tubal patency, that is, her tubes are not blocked.
