About the Authors
  • Intrauterine insemination and ovulation induction is effective first-line treatment for infertility in many straightforward cases and is preferred by many clinicians because they are less invasive than in-vitro fertilization and its variants. This is a comprehensive account of how to set up and run a successful IUI program. The book addresses the practical aspects of treatments that will produce optimum results in terms of pregnancy outcome and safety, as well as the pharmacological and physiological reasons for their use. Chapters on how to prevent complications of ovulation induction such as multiple births and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome are included, as well as how to diagnose infertility in both sexes. Laboratory procedures for sperm preparation are described in detail. Worldwide resources for obtaining donor sperm and legal issues that surround the management of patients are included. This manual is of interest to reproductive medicine specialists, general practitioners and general obstetrician gynecologists.

    • Gives detailed instructions and materials lists for preparing sperm for IUI according to five different methods, including male sex selection
    • Provides detailed information about how to perform ovulation induction to achieve optimum results and minimize multiple pregnancies
    • Provides web sites for obtaining donor sperm, and other resources for helpful information and psychological support

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a thorough discussion of techniques and therapeutic options for using intrauterine insemination and ovulation induction for infertility patients. There is still an art and a matter of opinion to certain aspects of infertility therapies, but these authors quite successfully propose several options and discuss the history and mechanistic features of all therapies. This is a useful book for our field."
