Intrauterine Insemination - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Intrauterine insemination, also known as artificial insemination, is a procedure done to help a woman get pregnant. A woman's reproductive system includes the vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. During the monthly menstrual cycle, one of her ovaries releases an egg in a process called ovulation. After ovulation, the egg enters the fallopian tube. A woman is most likely to become pregnant if she has sex in the days just before, during, or right after ovulation. During this time, a sperm cell from a man's reproductive fluid, called semen, is able to fertilize her egg as it moves through the fallopian tube. Intrauterine insemination may be performed if a woman is having trouble getting pregnant, a condition known as infertility, or it may be done if a woman wants to have a child without a male partner. Before intrauterine insemination, a woman may receive fertility medication that causes her to release more than one egg during ovulation. In a process called sperm washing, a man's sperm will be separated from the fluid in his semen. This concentrates the sperm, removes debris, and removes hormones that may cause the uterus to cramp. If the male partner is completely infertile, also known as sterile, or if the woman does not have a male partner, previously washed and frozen donor sperm will be used for the procedure. The doctor will monitor the ovaries for ovulation. Intrauterine insemination must be performed right before or right after a woman ovulates so that an egg is available for fertilization. During the procedure, the woman will lie on an examination table. A tool called a speculum will be inserted into her vagina so that the doctor can see her cervix. A syringe will be loaded with a small amount of fluid containing the washed sperm. Then, the syringe will be attached to a long thin tube called a catheter. The doctor will insert the catheter into the vagina. The tip of the catheter will be guided through the opening in the cervix and into the uterus. Once the catheter is inside the uterus, the doctor will inject the sperm. Then, the catheter and speculum will be removed. The woman may continue to lie on her back for about 10 minutes.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

Geoff Wells

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."
