|- Inclusion criteria||1. Age female partner: 18-38 years;|
2. Failure to conceive: 12-36 months;
3. Male subfertility: Pre-wash TMSC 3-6.10^6.
|- Exclusion criteria||1. Severe male subfertility: Pre-wash TMSC < 3.10^6;|
2. Female partner with polycystic ovary syndrome or any other anovulation, severe endome-triosis, double-sided tubal pathology, endocrinopathological disease (Cushing syndrome, adrenal hyperplasia, hyperprolactinemia, acromegaly, imminent ovarian failure, premature ovarian failure, hypothalamic amenorrhea and diabetes mellitus (type I).
|- mec approval received||no|
|- multicenter trial||yes|
|- Type||2 or more arms, randomized|
|- planned startdate ||1-jun-2013|
|- planned closingdate||31-mei-2017|
|- Target number of participants||364|
|- Interventions||3 cycles of IVF, including transfer of cryopreserved embryos vs 3 cycles of IUI, followed by 3 cycles of IUI-COH.|
|- Primary outcome||The primary outcome is establishment of ongoing pregnancy leading to live birth within the treatment time horizon.|
|- Secondary outcome||Time to pregnancy, miscarriage, multiple pregnancy and live birth rate are secondary outcomes. Further secondary outcomes are neonatal mortality, pregnancy complications (preterm birth < 37 weeks, birth weight < 2.500 gram, PIH, (pre-) eclampsia, HELLP) costs of reproductive treatments, perinatal care and ad-verse events. Also patients' quality of life and preferences will serve as secondary outcomes.|
|- Timepoints||Primary and secondary outcomes within 9 months after randomisation. Questionnaires at one day, two months, four months and six months after randomization.|

|- Brief summary||Rationale: |
We hypothesize that less invasive therapies are equally effective as more invasive therapies for male subfertility.
In one third of subfertile couples male subfertility is diagnosed. Current treatments for male subfertility, IUI, IVF and ICSI, have, despite their widespread use, not been compared on their cost-effectiveness. The primary aim of this project is to assess the
cost-effectiveness of therapies for male subfertility.
IVF versus IUI in moderate male subfertility.
Subfertile couples with male subfertility (pre-wash TMSC 3-6 million).
3 cycles of IVF, including transfer of cryoembryos.
Control: 3 cycles of IUI, followed by 3 cycles of IUI-COH. Treatment time horizon 9 months.
Main study parameters/endpoints:
Primary: Ongoing pregnancy leading to live birth.
Secondary: Time to pregnancy, miscarriage, multiple pregnancy, live birth, perinatal outcome, (in-)direct costs, quality of life and patient preferences.
Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness:
As we compare interventions that are already applied in current practice, no additional risks or burdens are expected from the study.
