Artificial insemination with donor sperm is a technique that allows us to insert sperm, previously selected from a sperm bank, directly into the uterus at the best possible time.
Who is it recommended for?
- Couples where the young female partner has cervix disorders, a blocked fallopian tube, or ovulation disorders.
- Young women with a good ovarian reserve and whose partner has poor sperm quality.
- Women that want to be mothers but don’t have a male partner.
- Couples where the male partner has some type of disease that he doesn’t want to pass on to the embryo.
- Female couples that need a sperm donor.
How are donors selected?
We select the donor from our sperm bank based on their physical traits and blood type. If you would like, donors can be selected based on genetic compatibility.
The donor undergoes an extensive medical and psychological screening to rule out any risks in their personal or family medical history. It includes a blood, sperm, and urine test to rule out genetic and sexually transmitted diseases and to verify that their sperm is of high enough quality.
35% of the patients that use this technique in our fertility clinic achieve pregnancy.
If we don’t obtain a positive result, another cycle can be started when you get your period and if your ovaries are at rest. If after three or four insemination cycles you do not achieve pregnancy, we recommend that you try in-vitro fertilisation.
