It provides a very practical account and explains clearly the scientific and medical issues.The various chapters deal with design and equipment of the unit, patient selection, counselling, ovarian stimulation strategies, the role of ultrasonography, semen analysis and sperm preparation, intrauterine insemination techniques, semen cryopreservation and banking, and complications.

This is the most comprehensive source of information on IUI A Handbook of Intrauterine Insemination (Meniru G.I., Brinsden P.R. and Craft I.L.) Cambridge University Press

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is less invasive and cheaper than many other assisted conception treatments such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF). The treatment is offered in a variety of settings by various cadre of medical practitioners. The decision to write this book was based on the fact that there was no comprehensive source of information on the conduct of IUI. Rather practitioners had to obtain disjointed information from several sources leading to a great variability in the practice and results of the treatment. I assembled a team of highly qualified professionals and we succeeded in bringing together most of what is presently known about IUI.

The book is practice oriented. Although we have in each chapter discussed the theoretical basis of the subject and the various schools of thought we have still 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. Furthermore, issues raised in some chapters concern not only IUI but many other assisted conception treatments. Such common topics include ovarian stimulation, ultrasound scanning, laboratory aspects of treatment and complications. I have noted copies of the book in a number of librariies I have visited since its publication; it is also a good reference book.

This unique book has been received very well by the medical community especially as can be judged by the sales figures! and critical acclaim in premier scientific journals such as Fertility and Sterility, Lancet and Professional Nurse.
