Abstract

Women conceiving by assisted reproduction are at higher risk for preterm and premature rupture of membranes. The aim of our study was to estimate and compare incidence of preterm premature rupture of membranes in singleton pregnancies of women who conceived by intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization, from 1999 to 2003. We investigated 87 women from the intrauterine insemination, and 102 from the in vitro fertilization program. There were no statistically significant differences in regard to preterm and premature rupture of membranes: p > 0.75 in two groups. The incidence of premature rupture of membranes was 2.30% (after intrauterine insemination) and 2.94% (after in vitro fertilization). There was no statistically significant differences in regard to preterm and premature rupture of membranes in women who conceived by insemination and in vitro fertilization. Estimated incidence of preterm and premature rupture of membranes was similar to the literature data and also similar to incidence after natural conception.
