IUI is kind of insemination.They place the washed sperm into a clynder which has a long very thing tube connected to it. They insert the tube into you and push the sperm through the tube.
This long thin tubes allows the sperm to be shot up and above the uterus which makes it in a better place then normal intercourse.
It is totally painless. The worst part is that annoying THING that all gyno's use to open you up...I forget the name, but I hate those suckers!!!

ss - thanks for your help. I am glad that it is not painful because I was worried about it. I think that it is the next logical step since we haven't gotten pregnant with the clomid yet.
