Abstract

The value of high vaginal insemination at the time of oocyte recovery for in vitro fertilization (IVF) has been assessed. A previous study reported a dramatic increase in the incidence of pregnancy in women after high vaginal insemination (53%) compared with those without insemination (23%). Of 306 patients undergoing IVF, 97 (32%) became pregnant and 20 (21%) miscarried. Those patients with tubal damage numbered 187. Sixty (33%) became pregnant and 10 (17%) miscarried. The data were assessed according to the numbers of conceptuses replaced, the age of the patient, and whether a spontaneous luteinzing hormone surge or human chorionic gonadotropin was a trigger for ovulation, each with a significant effect on the outcome of treatment. No significant effect of the use of high vaginal insemination was found.
