Artificial Insemination with donor sperm (AID) is a basic assisted reproduction technique that consists of introducing a donor sperm sample into the woman’s uterus using the appropriate instruments. This sample is previously prepared in the laboratory to optimise its quality.
In order to increase the chances of pregnancy, the ovulation of the mother-to-be can be induced by hormonal medication before the insemination. In the case of young women without fertility problems, if desired, the insemination can be performed without any additional hormonal stimulation.
Mainly for single women or lesbian couples. In general, Artificial Insemination with Donor Sperm is recommended for women up to 38 years of age.
The chances of pregnancy in an insemination treatment depend mainly on the age of the patient and the number of follicles that develop in the cycle.
In Barcelona, and as a project of Institut Marquès, we have our sperm bank with more than 2,000 premium donors. They are anonymous donors, as the Spanish law 14/2006 of May 14 on assisted human reproduction techniques establishes that donation must be anonymous, voluntary, informed and unpaid.
As we have our own sperm bank, we know the donors and select only the best. They are young people who decide to donate to help other people to build a family and who must undergo exhaustive medical and psychological tests. We also have all the phenotypes to find the most suitable donor for each case. It is the doctor himself who will be in charge of choosing the best fitting sperm donor for you, taking into account your physical features and the hereditary traits of your personality. We look for the perfect match.
If you prefer to personally choose your donor (non-anonymous donor) or do your treatment with the sperm of a family member or friend (known donor) we can help you, we collaborate with the best clinics.
