From the time of its opening on January 1, 1973 until January 31, 1978, the Centre d’Etude et de Conservation du Sperme de Paris-Bicêtre was involved in the treatment of 1188 women by AID. Inseminations were carried out with cryopreserved semen according to a treatment protocol which called for, in particular, a single insemination for the first two AID cycles. This study will compare the results for the first series of treatments(reported elsewhere1) to successive series carried out for a second or third pregnancy.
