The results obtained by closest cooperation between gynaecologist and andrologist in the treatment of sterile marriages are reported. 127 couples were treated over a period of 20 months. Almost 100% of the males and 60% of the females were sub- or infertile. Treatment of both partners was meticulously coordinated in order to increase the success ratio. Interdisciplinary cooperation seemed to be advantageous particularly in homologous insemination. 23 pregnancies were achieved, i.e. 18.1%, despite the unpromising nature of this negatively selected material.
