Awards & highlights


This trial is testing whether a new method for artificial insemination is safe and effective.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for couples facing male infertility, where the woman is aged 19-40 without tubal, uterine or ovarian issues and has at least one open fallopian tube. Men must have a certain sperm count after preparation. Participants can't have had more than three IUI cycles, past ectopic pregnancies or tubal surgeries, recent pelvic infections, or allergies to methotrexate.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The FemaSeed Localized Directional Insemination technique is being tested for its safety and effectiveness in artificial insemination compared to standard procedures. The study aims to help couples with male factor infertility conceive.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include discomfort during the procedure and risks associated with methotrexate treatment if an ectopic pregnancy occurs (which might involve nausea, mouth sores, low blood counts).


Screening ~ 3 weeks

Other Research
The FemaSeed Localized Directional Insemination trial focuses on the targeted delivery of sperm to the optimal location within the reproductive tract, enhancing fertilization rates by ensuring that a higher concentration of motile sperm reaches the egg. This method is particularly beneficial for patients with unexplained infertility or mild male factor infertility, as it increases the chances of sperm-egg interaction. Other common treatments include intrauterine insemination (IUI), where sperm is directly placed into the uterus, and in vitro fertilization (IVF), where eggs are fertilized outside the body and then implanted into the uterus. These treatments aim to overcome various barriers to fertilization, such as low sperm count or poor motility, and are crucial for patients struggling to conceive naturally.
