Artificial insemination with donor sperm

To overcome their infertility problems and achieve pregnancy, many couples around the world resort to artificial insemination with donor sperm. This treatment, available at Inser, will help many couples achieve the pregnancy they crave.

Artificial insemination with donor semen consists of obtaining a semen sample from a sperm bank to insert it into the woman’s reproductive system at the time of ovulation.

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 donated sperm attends an initial interview with one of the gynecologists, who in addition to providing information about the sperm donation process, performs a complete medical evaluation of the couple, to evaluate their health status. For insemination to be successful, 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, to prepare for the donation process and identify areas of potential conflict.

The artificial insemination procedure involves the insertion of spermatozoa into the woman’s uterine cavity 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 the uterus and reach the Fallopian tubes where 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 placed 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%.
