Intrauterine insemination is an affordable and effective first line treatment in patients, who require artificial reproductive techniques. The success rate of IUI worldwide is 15-18%. At Friends IVF, we have tried to improve the percentage of success rate by strictly adhering to the pre-requisites for IUI and careful and intelligent selection of couples. A study was carried out at Friends IVF, that included the patients having Male Infertility mostly. Sperm count in final preparation made for IUI can be increased multifold by certain lab techniques. In few of the samples, the sperms swim up not only in Sperm Wash but also in Normal saline. Using normal saline in such patients can reduce the cost of IUI substantially. In few of the samples, sperms do not swim up, in those cases only Sperm wash or Gradient can be used. Natural Cycle stimulation or Clomiphene Citrate was used in most of the cycles, In few patients pure FSH was given.
