Excerpt
1. Introduction This manual is intended for use with the forms and flow charts for the investigation and diagnosis of the infertile couple. It is of utmost importance that each investigator participating in the programme read this manual carefully prior to the start of the study, and refer to it routinely as questions arise during the study. The purpose of this manual is to attempt to unify and standardize both the minimal and optimal diagnostic procedures which lead to the effective management of the infertile couple. If one wants to compare the results reported from different centres, a uniform approach needs to be adopted for at least the following procedures: the diagnostic selection of subjects for treatment of infertility; the choice of therapy; the treatment scheme; the monitoring of therapy; and the parameters of follow-up. Additionally, comparison ofthe results obtained in various groups ofpatients at the same centre, and more so, of patients treated at different centres is only possible if a well-defined and reproducible diagnostic classification and treatment method has been used.
