Summary The aim of the presented study is to determine the effect of different sperm parameters on the pregnancy rate of intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles in women with favourable fertility characteristics treated for infertility. Medical records of 212 infertile couples who had undergone a total of 253 cycles were reviewed retrospectively. Inclusion criteria for women were age <35 years, antral follicle count >5, FSH <15 IU/ml, and at least one patent tube documented by HSG or laparoscopy… 
Number of motile spermatozoa inseminated and pregnancy outcomes in intrauterine insemination
TLDR
It is suggested that the NMSI can be used as a predictor of success in IUI in couples with women who are < 35 years of age; these patients should be counselled about their lower pregnancy rates when the N MSI is lower.
Different factors affecting the success of intrauterine insemination
TLDR
Investigation of the influence of various factors on the outcome of intrauterine insemination as a trial for improving the quality of health care provided for women with infertility problems as well as infertility center outcomes found leading follicle mean diameter of 19.8 mm was the optimum diameter to trigger the ovulation and to have pregnancy.
Relationship between sperm parameters and clinical outcomes of Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)
TLDR
Among women who got pregnant, continuation of the pregnancy was associated with the normal sperm count, and analysis of all semen parameters together in comparison to one parameter alone might be more accurate to predict pregnancy or abortion.
Factors predictive of clinical pregnancy in the first intrauterine insemination cycle of 306 couples with favourable female patient characteristics
TLDR
Of the female characteristics investigated, BMI was the most significant predictive factor of clinical pregnancy in the first SO/IUI cycle of couples with unexplained or mild male factor infertility and favourable female characteristics, and in overweight women, weight loss should be advised before starting so-called superovulation/intrauterine insemination.
Influences on endometrial development during intrauterine insemination: clinical experience of 2,929 patients with unexplained infertility.
TLDR
The impact of "endometrial factor" infertility may be underappreciated in IUI therapy and targeted therapies to optimize the endometrium represent an important new area to improve in current fertility success rates.
Timing of intrauterine insemination: an attempt to unravel the enigma
TLDR
Altering timing of IUI after COS does not enhance pregnancy rates and the lack of statistical significance indicates need for larger studies to draw guidelines.
The Use of Pooled Consecutive Ejaculates in Moderate Male Factor Infertility to Increase Intrauterine Insemination Success
TLDR
In couples with moderate male factor infertility with semen parameters inadequate for IUI, pooled consecutive ejaculates yield higher inseminating motile counts which enhance IUI success rates.
Does intrauterine insemination timing matter for achieving pregnancy during ovulation induction using gonadotropins? A retrospective cohort study
TLDR
IUI performed at either 24 hours or 36 hours after ovulation triggered by hCG injection does not change clinical pregnancy rates for PCOS patients, while patients with unexplained infertility seem to benefit from earlier IUI procedures, which increases their fertility potential during ovulation induction with gonadotropins.
Do pregnancy rates differ with intra-uterine insemination when different combinations of semen analysis parameters are abnormal?
TLDR
It is clear that total sperm in the specimen and not the concentration of sperm per milliliter was the critical factor for predicting pregnancy, and a reorganization of semen analysis reports should be done emphasizing the total amount of sperm present and de-emphasizing Concentration of sperm.
Intrauterine insemination-No more Mr. N.I.C.E. guy?
TLDR
IUI/COH is a simple treatment that produces good live birth rates, especially in younger patients and/or those with previous parity, and there is merit in continuing to offer IUI before resorting to IVF for certain patients.

Analysis of factors influencing pregnancy rates in homologous intrauterine insemination.
TLDR
Homologous IUI achieves the best results with two or three induced follicles, a high motile spermatozoa count, and infertility duration <3 years, irrespective of female age and fertility history.

We report on 332 infertile couples who underwent 1115 cycles of intrauterine insemination (IUI) with washed husband's semen. The indication for IUI was an abnormal post-coital test due to either a
Predictive factors for pregnancy after intrauterine insemination (IUI): an analysis of 1038 cycles and a review of the literature.
TLDR
The couple with the best chance of pregnancy can be described as follows: an under 30 woman with cervical or anovulatory infertility and a man with a TMS >or=5 million spermatozoa.
Processed total motile sperm count correlates with pregnancy outcome after intrauterine insemination.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the PTMS count independently predicts success with IUI, and cycles with less than 10 million total motile sperm are significantly less likely to result in a pregnancy.
Prognostic indicators for intrauterine insemination (IUI): statistical model for IUI success.
TLDR
It is concluded that careful patient selection criteria coupled with successful ovarian stimulation is the model for IUI success.
Effect of sperm morphology and number on success of intrauterine insemination.
TLDR
Intrauterine insemination used for treating male factor infertility has little chance of success when the woman is older than 35 years, the number of motile spermatozoa inseminated is <5 x 10(6), or normal sperm morphology is <30%.
Effect of the total motile sperm count on the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization.
TLDR
An average total motile sperm count of 10 million may be a useful threshold value for decisions about treating a couple with IUI or IVF, and only female age was an important predictor for both clinical and ongoing pregnancy.
Effect of maternal and paternal age on pregnancy and miscarriage rates after intrauterine insemination.
TLDR
It was found that advanced maternal age had a negative effect on the pregnancy rate and was associated with increased miscarriage rate, and an exactly parallel effect was found for paternal age.
Determinants of the outcome of intrauterine insemination: analysis of outcomes of 9963 consecutive cycles.
TLDR
Differences in pregnancy outcomes between sperm processing options were related to differences in sperm motility after processing; use of methods incorporating motility enhancement with pentoxifylline and motile sperm concentration through silica gradients yielded the highest overall pregnancy rates.
Intrauterine insemination or in-vitro fertilisation in idiopathic subfertility and male subfertility: a randomised trial and cost-effectiveness analysis
TLDR
Couples with idiopathic or male subfertility should be counselled that IUI offers the same likelihood of successful pregnancy as IVF, and is a more cost-effective approach.
