Background: Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is known as one of the method for infertility treatment. The effectiveness of IUI is not identical in all cases.
Objective: For facilitating of IUI and decrease of entrance of bacteria into uterus to increase pregnancy rate, cervical canal cleaning by swab is compared with IUI without cervical canal cleaning.
Material and Method: This study was conducted between 1st september 2008, 30th september 2009 in Mirza koochak Khan infertility center. After the initial investigations and omitting severe male and female infertility, 310 cases were selected. They divided two groups. IUI with swab as treated group (n=154) and IUI without swab as control group (n=156) variables were age, pregnancy rate and number of follicles.
Result: There were no statistical differences in age and type of infertility between two groups. Pregnancy rate in treated group was 14.3 % which is more than 10.3% in control group. This difference was significant between two groups.
Conclusion: There has been some research in which cervical canal cleaning before IUI increased pregnancy rate. In the recent study pregnancy rate was increased by cervical canal cleaning with swab before IUI. We observed meaningful statistical differences between two groups.
