Intrauterine Insemination

by Gautam Nandkishore Allahbadia

This remarkably concise and clear book deals with many issues relating to IUI including proper semen analysis and morphology, semen preparation and semen cryopreservation. The book also serves an eloquent discussion of many of the topics that are still subject to intense research, including the optimal sperm preparation method, the effectiveness of a gradient and/or a swim-up and/or wash and centrifugation technique on clinical outcome, whether supplementation of culture media with substances such as antioxidants and platelet activating factor may improve the results and the value of double insemination. This important and useful book not only provides an abundance of up-to-date practical and theoretical information, but also serves as a comprehensive guide—a real MUST—for anyone interested in setting-up and running a successful intrauterine insemination programme. The book is practice oriented. Each chapter discussed the theoretical basis of the subject and the various schools of thought and provided practical guidelines such that the reader should become very confident and competent in providing this treatment. Although the book is primarily directed at health professionals, non-medical persons have found the book easy to read and patients find the information provided in the book to be very useful.
