Abstract

Optimising pregnancy and live birth outcomes for fertility procedures is highly desirable and involves disentangling numerous potentially contributing factors. In IUI procedures would double inseminations within a cycle be beneficial? Despite mistaken belief amongst the fertility practitioners the available evidence including Cochrane review has suggested, there would be beneficial effects of utilising double IUI within a cycle. Here we examine new evidence attempting to clarify the role of double versus single IUI.
