Interested in a New Investigational
Intrauterine Insemination?

See if the FemaSeed study is right for you.

What is FemaSeed?

FemaSeed is a flexible catheter that is placed into your uterus after a speculum is positioned (just like for a pap smear). The FemaSeed catheter is designed with a balloon which is inflated in the uterus near the opening of one fallopian tube, allowing the prepared sperm to be delivered by pressure through the catheter near and into the selected fallopian tube. Conception (when sperm cell successfully meets an egg cell) usually takes place in the fallopian tubes, which connect the ovaries to the uterus. This new investigational method of delivery has not been studied before.

Frequently Asked Questions

You may be eligible for this study if:

  • You are a female and infertile.
  • You are between the ages of 19-40.
  • You meet the qualifications for receiving a standard intrauterine insemination (IUI) procedure.
  • You have both fallopian tubes open.

You cannot join this study if:

  • You have had more than three prior intrauterine inseminations (IUI) or any prior assisted reproduction procedure (e.g. In Vitro Fertilization).
  • You have had an ectopic pregnancy (when a pregnancy grows outside your uterus, usually in the fallopian tube).
  • You have had surgery of one or both of your fallopian tubes.
  • You have moderate to severe endometriosis.
  • You have tubal factor infertility.
  • You are breast-feeding.
  • You have a known allergy/sensitivity to methotrexate or medical conditions which may be negatively impacted by methotrexate use.
If you join the study, you will receive the FemaSeed investigational procedure and all study-related care at no cost to you. You do not need insurance to participate.
The benefits are that you may become pregnant after a FemaSeed investigational procedure, and your involvement could help provide a safe and effective option for millions of women struggling with infertility. The biggest risk is that FemaSeed does not work and you do not become pregnant.
You may drop out of the study for any reason at any time.
The study is being sponsored by Femasys Inc. (www.femasys.com), a medical device company based in the US.
