An analysis of the results of 6139 AI cycles performed on 1001 women during an 18 year period.  It combines data from a number of previous studies.

 

Pregnancy rates per cycle are broken down against the following factors:

 

  • previous pregnancies
  • treatment modalities (cervical cap versus IUI)
  • medication used for induction of ovulation (none, or clomid, or HCG, or a combination)
  • female age
  • year of treatment
  • consecutive AI cycle effect
  • the use of fresh versus frozen–thawed sperm

 

 The study makes the following broad conclusions:

  • The average success rate per cycle came to 12.6%
  • Previous pregnancy did not seem to increase the odds of success, though this effect could have been present but hidden by other factors
  • Ovulation-stimulating drugs did not seem to increase the odds of success, though this effect could also have been present but hidden by other factors
  • Success rates show a definite decline with increasing age of the recipient - see the study data for the specifics
  • Success rates declined somewhat for recipients who tried for multiple cycles, though the rate always remained over 10% per cycle
  • Success rates for frozen + thawed sperm samples were lower than for fresh sperm samples
