The incidence of infertility is about 10 to 15 % among
reproductive age group. The cause of infertility may be either
due to male factor or female factor or both. The main aim of
this study was to evaluate the success rate of intrauterine
insemination (IUI) in a private centre of Pokhara.
Materials and Methods
This was a centre based retrospective study done in private
fertility centre. Sub-fertile couples who were treated from
January 1st 2015 to December 31st 2016 were enrolled for
the study. Couples with unexplained male factor, ovulatory
dysfunction, unilateral tubal occlusion and ejaculatory
dysfunction were included in this study. Three hundred and
eighty IUI cases were retrospectively reviewed. Clinical
pregnancy rate was the primary outcome.
The success rate of IUI was 15.7%. It was higher among
unexplained infertility cases. Clinical pregnancy rate was
directly associated with the age of the patients, indications of
infertility and number of cycles.
Success rate of IUI in infertile couples who had unexplained
infertility, tubal factor, ovulatory dysfunction was higher than
male factor infertility and ejaculatory dysfunction.
