Retrograde ejaculation: a more convenient method for artificial insemination.


A case of retrograde ejaculation not responding to medical treatment is described in which the problem of sterility was overcome by artificial insemination. The semen was collected from urine after coitus by previous alkalinization with 1.63 g NaHCO3 once daily. Pregnancy occurred at the 4th insemination during the 1st treatment cycle. This technique seems to be the most suitable for artificial insemination in cases of retrograde ejaculation.
