Donor Insemination– AKANKSHA IVF CENTRE


Donor Insemination (D.I):

This is a procedure where sperms from a male donor are used to help a woman become pregnant. This procedure may be required when the sperms of the female’s partner are not competent enough to fertilize her egg and once all efforts to conceive the female through her partner’s sperms have failed. This procedure may be required under the following circumstances:

  • When the male partner is unable to produce adequate sperms.
  • When the male partner’s sperm count or quality is so poor that it is unlikely to result in the conception of a baby, unless (ICSI) Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection is carried out.
  • When the male partner has a high risk of passing on an inherited disease.
  • When the female does not have a male partner.

Sperm donors are screened for sexually transmitted diseases and some genetic disorders. During DI, sperm from the donor are placed inside the uterus at the time when the woman ovulates. Donor sperms can also be used during both IUI and IVF procedures.
