Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A simple technique to increase the success rate of artificial insemination is described: most of the cervical mucus is aspirated prior to the endocervical injection of the husband's or donor's semen. The bulk of seminal fluid is kept in place; its back flow into the vagina is prevented by gentle pressing of the syringe by the patient. Sixty-six women underwent treatment by this technique. The pregnancy rate was significantly higher, and fewer cycles of treatment per pregnancy were required, as compared to 65 women inseminated by simple endocervical injection. No side effects except mild transitory abdominal pain were encountered.
