When is it recommended?

Artificial insemination with donor sperm consists of placing sperm obtained from a sperm bank inside the uterus. It is a simple and effective technique, as the semen sample has been obtained from a healthy man, so it is good quality and contains enough sperm.

Artificial insemination with donor sperm is recommended when the partner has some kind of hereditary disease or his testicles are unable to produce sperm (testicular failure) or for women without a male partner.


Monitoring and stimulating the ovaries

1. Ovarian stimulation and monitoring

The ovaries are stimulated by administering hormones (follicle stimulating FSH and, in some cases, luteinizing hormone LH) and the cycle is monitored by means of ultrasound scans in order to verify that both the number and size of the follicles is appropriate (only one follicle is necessary for this technique). It is then that, by administering another hormone that mimics LH, (the hormone) which triggers ovulation in a natural way, (LH or luteinizing hormone) the egg is released.

Obtaining the sperm sample

2. Preparation of the semen sample

On the day of insemination, the man delivers the semen sample to the laboratory. The sample is treated to separate the motile sperm from the rest. After this process, a sufficient concentration of motile sperm is obtained (several million) in order to carry out the insemination.


3. Insemination

On the day of ovulation the sperm sample is loaded into a thin tube and inserted into the uterus for injection. It is a simple, painless procedure and very similar to any gynaecological examination.
