I am 39 and my husband is 45. His sperm is not motile, but we are otherwise healthy. We tried IVF twice; the first time I had a clinical pregnancy and the second time I had an ectopic pregnancy (this was my second ectopic. My first was years before]. In this second ectopic, they removed the left fallopian tube. Would we be good candidates for IUI with a sperm donor? Thank you for your help with this question. Sincerely, Nicole.

Hi Nicole,
As long as your other tube is healthy, donor sperm IUI is definitely an option. Due to your history of 2 ectopic pregnancies, you are at a very significant risk of a recurrent ectopic, and probably more so with IUI than with IVF.
Hope this helps,
Dr Coffler
