Abstract

Women with low Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) levels, a sign of impaired ovarian reserve, have difficulties becoming pregnant, and this study investigates the complex relationship between the number of antral follicles and the effectiveness of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) for these women. The research finds that bigger antral follicles are associated with increased pregnancy rates and enhanced embryo quality via a thorough literature review and quantitative research with primary data collection. These results highlight the importance of antral follicle size in predicting IUI success. By using this data, clinicians will be able to better guide and manage this subset of patients, increasing their chances of a successful IUI. However, the study stresses the need of using a holistic approach, taking into account other parameters in addition to antral follicle size.
