Artificial insemination (ADI) has been carried out with donor semen since 1984. Following artificial insemination 14 women out of 27 became pregnant in 1984, 30 women out of 57 in 1985 and 33 women out of 56 until October 1, 1986. The cycles were monitored. Serum LH and oestradiol levels were determined every day from the 10th day of the cycle. Follicle size was monitored daily and cervical mucus was also examined every day. LH reaches the highest level at the time of ovulation. 17-Beta-oestradiol level increases parallel with the growth of follicle. Follicular growth can be best monitored by ultrasound folliculometry, providing 50-60% effectiveness.
