Inclusion Criteria:

  • The woman's inclusion criteria in our IUI program were at least one patent tube, normal cavity, basal FSH < 10 mU/mL and age under 40 years.
  • IUI with husband's sperm (IUI-H) was indicated when, after sperm preparation, at least 5 million motile spermatozoa were recovered; this was performed in 58 cases (79.45%).
  • In the remaining 15 cases (20.55%), IUI was performed with donor sperm (IUI-D) either because of azoospermia (n=6) failure to recover spermatozoa during testicular biopsy (n=5) or in women without a male partner (n=4).
