Artificial insemination is a minimal-invasive and simple technique, which consists in introducing capacitated sperm into the uterus at the moment of ovulation to increase the possibilities of achieving pregnancy.
However, artificial insemination must not be confused with in vitro fertilization: artificial insemination occurs naturally in the fallopian tubes, but due to its low chances of achieving pregnancy, it does not constitute a method with an optimal cost-efficiency relation.
This treatment is performed by means of personalized and controlled ovarian stimulation, using next-gen protocols in order to obtain 1 - 2 ovarian follicles.
Pregnancy rates 10 - 20%.*
Types of artificial insemination
- With sperm from partner.
- With donor sperm.
Spain has one of the most progressive laws on assisted reproduction worldwide. Both sperm and egg donation are legal and anonymous. In addition, Spanish law provides that children born by means of assisted reproduction techniques shall not be able to obtain information regarding the donor - similarly, the donor shall not be able to obtain information, such as the identity of the conceived child.
Spanish law also provides the study and acceptance of donors by establishing the necessary tests; however, at IVF-Spain we go further the required test, which ultimately allows us to utilize both eggs and sperm with the highest assurance of security.
For whom is it appropriate?

Treatment viability depends on medical diagnosis.
*Pregnancy rates depend on age, ovarian reserve, individual response to treatment and genetics. Displayed data are representative to the cases subject to study.
