Abstract

The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the results of intrauterine insemination (IUI) in The Netherlands, using data from 2003 taken from hospital annual reports and reports from individual gynaecologists. By extrapolation, the total number of IUI cycles performed that year nationwide, and the related outcomes, was estimated. IUI was performed in 91 of the country's 101 hospitals. Of these, 58 (64%) registered their IUI results and performed 19,846 IUI cycles. The mean pregnancy rate per cycle was 9.0% and the ongoing pregnancy rate per cycle was 7.3%. Multiple pregnancies occurred in 9.5% of the ongoing pregnancies. Extrapolation of the data suggested that approximately 28,500 IUI cycles were performed, of which approximately 2000 resulted in an ongoing pregnancy. The number of multiple pregnancies following IUI was estimated to be 180 (9.0%). According to the national IVF registry, 9761 IVF cycles were started in 2003, resulting in 2,028 ongoing pregnancies (20.8% per cycle) and 439 twin pregnancies (21.6% per ongoing pregnancy). In conclusion, the pregnancy rate per IUI cycle in The Netherlands (9.0%) was comparable with that reported in the international literature (8.7%). The contribution made by IUI to the number of multiple pregnancies in The Netherlands was much smaller than the contribution made by IVF.
