Effect of unilateral tubal abnormalities on the results of intrauterine inseminations

Reproductive BioMedicine Online, September 2017, Volume 35, Issue 3, Pages 314-317

Abstract

A total of 101 patients with one normal tube were compared with 117 patients with two normal tubes to assess the effect of unilateral tubal abnormalities on the results of intrauterine inseminations. The clinical pregnancy and live birth rates seemed to reduce by one-half in almost all types of abnormality, suggesting that these patients should be preferentially treated with IVF.
