Abstract

Data on 207 couples attending for donor insemination (DI) were analyzed to determine the differences in fertility of insemination recipients and to provide prognostic guidelines as to its success. This study has shown that DI recipients with no infertility factors whose partners were azoospermic had the highest fecundability (0.178), whereas those with no infertility factors whose partners were subfertile had the lowest fecundability (0.036). Donor insemination recipients with treated endometriosis and ovulatory dysfunction have significantly higher fecundability (0.093 and 0.091, respectively) than those with other infertility factors (0.021) such as fibroids, tubal disease, or a combination of infertility factors. This study provides prognostic guidelines for DI recipients as to its success.
