Donor Insemination

Donor Insemination

Donor Insemination (DI) is performed by placing sperm form either an anonymous or designated (Identity Known) donor into the cervical opening (Intracervical Insemination, ICI) or into the uterus (Intra-Uterine Insemination, IUI) to help a woman become pregnant. Fertility centers most commonly use IUI instead of ICI with the monthly chance of pregnancy ranging between 8% to 20% depending on the woman’s age, weight and other fertility factors. Single women and same-sex couples commonly use DI to help them achieve their dreams of parenthood. Couples with severe male factor infertility where IVF/ICIS is not an option may select DI as an alternative to the more advanced assisted reproductive technologies. DI may also be chosen by those in whom the male partner is a carrier of an inherited genetic condition especially when IVF for PGT is not wanted or unable to be performed.
