Fifty patients with primary infertility were treated by intrauterine insemination of the husband's semen which had been stored. Thirty patients had sperm counts of greater than 20 × 106/ml with 50% motility and twenty patients had oligospermia (<20 × 106/ml).
The technique of storage of semen is reported and the intrauterine method described. The rôle of the buffer solution is discussed in overcoming the complications of intrauterine insemination. A success rate of 70% is reported in the normospermic group and 55% in the oligospermic group over nine cycles of intrauterine insemination of husband's semen.
Reproduction is committed to supporting researchers in demonstrating the impact of their articles published in the journal.
The two types of article metrics we measure are (i) more traditional full-text views and pdf downloads, and (ii) Altmetric data, which shows the wider impact of articles in a range of non-traditional sources, such as social media.
