SUCCESS RATE FOR ICI, IUI, ITI
Intra-cervical insemination (ICI): "Success rates with intracervical insemination have varied widely, but unfortunately, only 10 to 15% of couples will obtain a pregnancy following 4 to 6 well timed cycles of insemination." From http://www.ivf.com//insem.html
Intra-uterine insemination (IUI): Searching through about a dozen medical journal articles and a number of web sites resulted in a rather wide-range of statistics. Basically the odds of success are reported to be just under 8% and as high as 26% per cycle. The low statistics are with one follicle, while multiple follicles resulted in as high 26% success. Another influencing factor is sperm count. Higher sperm counts increase the odds of success, however, there was little difference between success with good-average counts and those with high counts. The overall success rate seems to be between 15-20% per cycle, judging from the articles which will be abstracted as part of the IUI FAQ at http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/iui.html. The rate of multiple gestation pregnancies was 23-30%.
Intra-tubal insemination (ITI): Similar to IUI only the sperm is deposited in the fallopian tube. Atlanta Reproductive Health Centre reports only a slightly higher success rate with ITI over IUI, and a great deal more discomfort to the patient. One journal article was found, calling this fallopian tube sperm perfusion, suggesting that this procedure doubles the chances of success. The citation is:
