The outcome of the seminal fluid parameters collected via coitus interruptus versus masturbation.

“A one year study was carried out to determine the outcome of the seminal fluid parameters collected via masturbation and coitus interruptus in 151 patients who were undergoing intrauterine insemination (IUI) and patients who came for seminal analysis. There were no statistically significant differences in terms of volume, concentration, progressive motility and normal morphology from specimens collected via coitus interruptus compared to specimens collected via masturbation. Pregnancy outcomes were also comparable.”

    I find the outcome of this study interesting. I’m guessing that the Pregnancy Rate, for Women, from Semen Collected VIA a Masturbation donor, was VIA invitro fertilization?
    I’m hoping the study was done by curiouse women, even though, I have wondered about this myself. Do more studie’s like this.
