Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In a case of infertility due to cervical factor, application of donor mucus into the cervical canal was effective. The donor mucus with the first fraction of te husband's split ejaculate were incubated at 37°C for 20 minutes. The mucus was then introduced into the cervical canal and a cerrvical cap for insemination was applied. A positive postcoital test was demonstrated after 6 hours. The patient conceived following a second such treatment. Donor cervical mucus application and insemination seem to be of value in the treatment of cervical factor.
