Assisted reproduction techniques

Artificial Insemination by Donor (AID)

Preparation for artificial insemination by donor (AID) is the same as for Artificial Insemination by Husband (AIH), the difference being that this assisted reproduction technique uses a frozen semen sample from the sperm bank (sperm donor).

It involves ovarian stimulation with hormones and the preparation of the semen sample (from the donor) in the laboratory, where the sperm with the best mobility and morphology is collected.

The final step is to place the sperm inside the woman’s uterus at the optimal moment in the ovarian cycle.

The sperm bank is chosen as set forth by the Spanish Regulation on Assisted Reproduction (Law 14/2006). According to this law, the sperm donor must have the most phenotypic similarities with the patients.
