International Coordination. Artificial Insemination.
The artificial insemination technique consists in placing the spermatozoa which have been previously selected for their good motility in the uterus to avoid the long journey they would naturally have to make from the vagina to the fallopian tube, where the sperm fertilizes the egg. This technique can be performed with your partner’s sperm (AIH), or, if necessary, with the sperm of an anonymous donor (AID).
What is the procedure?
To increase the chances of success, the ovaries are usually gently stimulated to confirm the maturity of at least one or two oocytes. The entire treatment must be controlled with ultrasound scans so as to ascertain the number of oocytes that will be produced as well as the day on which the ovulation will take place. On the day of ovulation, a sample of semen will be provided one or two hours before the insemination. The semen is processed in the laboratory to recover and concentrate the mobile spermatozoa into a small volume, and then placed into the uterus by means of a catheter.
We offer you the possibility of doing the first phase of the treatment in your country so that you will just have to come to Murcia for the last stage of the process. You can have your first scans done in your country and inform your coordinator about the results. She will present them to the doctor in charge of your case, who will study them and give you new instructions. In this way you can stay shorter. Or, if you prefer, you can have your stimulation monitored in our clinic: in such a case, you should stay here for about 10 days.
