ARMAS REGAL, Sergio; RECHKEMMER PRIETO, Adolfo  and  GARCIA HJARLES, Marco. Intrauterine insemination for treatment of infertility in women at the Hospital Nacional Arzobispo Loayza (1995-1997). Rev Med Hered [online]. 1999, vol.10, n.1, pp.14-20. ISSN 1018-130X.

Objective: To evaluate intrauterine insemination (IIU) procedures performed at the Infertility Service, Hospital Nacional Arzobispo Loayza, between January 1995 and December 1997. Material and methods: This is a retrospective and descriptive study. We include all infertile patients treated with IIU using husband’s sperm (IE) or Giver’s sperm (ID) during the period under study. Results: 98 patients (190 cycles) in IE group and 16 patients (33 cycles) in ID group were studied. We found significant association between the total number of motile sperm inseminated and pregnancy rates (PR). PR in IE group and ID group were 8,1% and 37.5% per patient and 4.7% and 18.1% per cycle, respectively. PR for cervical factor were 8.2% per patient and 4.1% per cycle. In cases of male factor PR were 13.3% and 11.5% per patient and cycle respectively. In IE group, PR increased in patients yonger than 36 years (9.8% per patient and 6.6% per cycle) and in patients without associated infertility factors (12.5% per patient and 6.6% per cycle). Conclusion: Sperm concentration correlated with pregnancies achieved. IIU is effective in patients with asthenospermia as well as IIU with ID in cases of azoospermia.
