Artificial insemination

Artificial insemination is an assisted reproduction technique that consists basically of optimizing the female cycle and placing the spermatozoa, previously selected in the laboratory, in the uterine cavity to enhance the gestation rate.

The insemination starts when the woman has her menstruation with the ovarian stimulation through the subcutaneous administration that best adapts to each individual case. The objective with this medication is to grow a follicle in the ovaries, so that it matures and gives way to the egg required to achieve the future embryo. While the medication is administered, transvaginal ultrasounds will be carried out to monitor the follicular development.

The artificial insemination technique consists of introducing a specific cannula to place the spermatozoa in the uterus. The only discomfort involved in the insemination is a simple routine gynecological examination. The results may vary depending on the age, the number of attempts, and the sperm quality. After a resting period, the patient can go home and resume her normal life in 24 hours.

Best candidates for CAI:

  • Women with ovulation disorders
  • Women with mild anatomical disorders
  • Endometriosis grade I-II
  • Mild sperm disorders
  • Impossibility to deposit the semen in the vagina
  • Sterility of unknown causes

The artificial insemination technique is called conjugal (CAI) when the spermatozoa come from your partner, and donor (DAI), when you are a woman without a male partner or with one whose semen characteristics prevent its use.

The day when the insemination will be performed, the man must deliver a sperm sample, after 2 to 4-day abstinence.

The objective is to select the best spermatozoa that will be introduced in the uterine cavity.

We will analyze the sample in our laboratory and will subject it to a technique called ‘’density gradients’’, so that only the spermatozoa with the best quality reach the final place.

When a sperm donor is required, it is important to note that all the sperm donors are young, anonymous, selected based on the physical characteristic of the requesting woman, and undergo a comprehensive study to discard any congenital or sexually transmitted disease.

Best candidates for DAI:

  • Women with ovulation disorders without a male partner
  • Women with mild anatomical disorders without a male partner
  • Endometriosis grade I-II without a male partner
  • Desire for pregnancy without a male partner
  • Azoospermia or impossibility to use the sperm sample of the male partner
  • Genetic disease in the male whose transmission to his children cannot be prevented with current methods
  • Our pregnancy rate after 4 cycles can reach 60 % in CAI and 80 % with DAI.
