This procedure may be required under the following circumstances:
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.
