Abstract

The relative efficiency of intrauterine insemination with washed spermatozoa versus intracervical deposition of semen was examined in donor insemination for therapeutic reasons. Fecundability in a group of 26 women who desired insemination as a treatment for azoospermia or severe astheno-oligozoospermia in their partner was comparable, despite the 10-fold higher numbers employed using the intracervical route.
