Sperm Quality as a Prognosticator in Intrauterine Insemination-treated Sub-Fertile Saudi Patients

The study was designed to determine the most effective sperm parameter(s) that would help in prescribing intrauterine insemination (IUI) for infertility treatment, within a Saudi infertility patient sample for the first time. We concluded that the post-sperm preparation total motile sperms count (TMSC) is the main determining component among sperm quality parameters, and that the TMSC of at least ten million men are the recommended numbers for the IUI success.


Background: Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) stays as the most feasible infertility treatment, yet its success indications need further refinement.

Objective: This study aims to determine the most effective sperm parameters that help in prescribing IUI for infertility treatment within a Saudi population sample.
