Artificial insemination with donor sperm
To overcome their infertility problems and achieve pregnancy, many couples around the world resort to artificial insemination with donor semen. This treatment, available at Inser, will help many couples achieve the pregnancy they crave.
For couples with a severe male infertility factor, such as total absence of sperm in the ejaculate (azoospermia) or when the man has a genetic disease that he does not want to transmit to his descendants.
When there is no sperm in the man’s ejaculate another option is to do a testicle biopsy and use the sperm obtained in an ICSI treatment.
The woman or partner who wishes to donate semen attends an initial interview with one of the gynecologists, who in addition to providing information about the semen donation process, performs a complete medical evaluation to the couple, in order to evaluate their health status. To be successful in insemination, the uterus and fallopian tubes should be normal, otherwise they should be treated.
If an evaluation of the male factor is required, the man is referred to the urologist to complete the studies and possible management. Additionally, laboratory tests are required for HIV, Hepatitis B and C, and blood group.
It is equally important for the couple to attend a psychological interview, in order to prepare for the donation process and identify areas of potential conflict.
The artificial insemination procedure involves the introduction of spermatozoa into the uterine cavity of the woman at the time of ovulation.
In natural fertilization, sperm are deposited in the vagina at the time of sexual intercourse. Only a few of the sperm, deposited there, manage to penetrate into the uterus and reach the trunk where the fertilization of the ovum occurs.
In artificial insemination, on the other hand, the semen sample is taken to the laboratory where, by means of several specialized processes, the spermatozoa with the greatest potential of fertilization are selected, which will then be introduced deep into the uterus.
The probability of pregnancy per cycle initiated is around 20 to 25% if there are no other infertility factors. With repeated cycles, a cumulative percentage of pregnancy can be obtained of 70%.
