The value of artificial insemination with husband's semen in infertility due to failure of postcoital sperm-mucus penetration--controlled trial of treatment

British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Artificial insemination with husband's semen into the cervical canal and uterine cavity (high AIH) was assessed by a randomized controlled prospective study in 46 couples whose infertility was due to failure of sperm mucus penetration, as defined by negative postcoital tests, after excluding all interfering female factors and men with sperm density less than 1 x 10(6)/ml. Seminal analysis was abnormal in 18 of the 46 men and sperm antibodies in semen were detected in 19 of the remaining 28 with normal seminal analysis. Overall, the cumulative conception rate after 6 months with AIH was 4.7 (SE 3.8)% and without treatment was 6.6 (SE 3.9)%. The results were unaffected by the findings on seminal analysis or by the presence or absence of sperm antibodies in semen. AIH appeared to be of no benefit.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
