Abstract
Objective: To report a case of successful treatment of complete retrograde ejaculation by superovulation and intrauterine insemination (IUI), by collecting spermatozoa from post ejaculatory urine. Design: Case report. Setting: Private infertility clinic (harkaar superspeciality centre). Patient(s): A couple with primary infertility for 7 years due to male’s complete retrograde ejaculation due to congenital hypoplastic prostate gland. The woman was having subserosal fibroid but otherwise normal menstrual cycles. Intervention(s): Super-ovulation and Intrauterine insemination IUI was done after alkalinizing urine and preparing IUI sample by processing post ejaculatory urine. IUI was done twice after HCG administration. Result(s): This protocol was used successfully to achieve pregnancy in this couple. Conclusion(s): To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of successful management of infertility through this protocol in Kashmir, j & k, India. This method obviates the need for more invasive sperm retrieval techniques.
