Abstract

A patient with testicular cancer (non-seminoma, stage IIB) who had undergone resection for primary disease and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection as well as chemotherapy and radiotherapy 6 years before developed iatrogenic retrograde ejaculation. The infertility was treated by oral medications, including herbal medicine and injections of a hormone preparation as well as artifical insemination of husband (AIH). After 24 sessions of AIH for 4 years, his spouse gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
We believe that for patients with iatrogenic retrograde ejaculation AIH is an effective method of increasing fertility to be employed more often.
