What is Donor Insemination?

by Lori Ramsey |
0 Comments


Definition

Donor insemination is when donated sperm is implanted into a woman in order for pregnancy to be achieved.

Candidates

Women whose husband/partners suffer from male factor infertility or single women whose desire is to get pregnant.

Procedure

Once a donor has been found and screened properly the sperm specimen is frozen for further evaluation. After meeting all the requirements the frozen sperm is transferred to the clinic for insemination. When the woman is ovulating, the sperm is inserted into the uterus via a small tube - the process is known as intrauterine insemination. Occasionally the sperm is deposited at the cervix -however for an increased chance at success an intrauterine insemination is done.
