Artificial Insemination

Artificial Insemination is one of the techniques used by Reproductive Medicine when there is a fertility problem that involves the placement of a sample of semen, previously prepared in the laboratory, inside the woman’s uterus in order to increase the potential of the sperm and the possibilities of fertilization of the ovule.

In this way, the distance separating the sperm from the ovule is shortened and we facilitate the meeting between both, increasing the chances of achieving the desired pregnancy. Unlike in vitro fertilization, it is not necessary to previously extract the woman’s ovules. After the initial diagnosis, ovarian stimulation is programmed and the endometrial control is carried out to determine the ideal moment to perform the Artificial Insemination.

There are profiles of patients that by age, gynecological conditions or some anomaly in the sperm of the couple, Artificial Insemination can not be made and then they must resort to an in vitro Fertilization.


Artificial insemination can be used when a man has had a vasectomy. In this case, the semen is obtained by puncture of the vas deferens and, if a sufficient sample is obtained, it is prepared for the artificial insemination. However, these samples are not usually very abundant, so it is likely that finally it is recommended to resort to in vitro fertilization.

*The vas deferens are part of the male anatomy of some species, including humans. They are a pair of muscular tubes surrounded by smooth muscle, each one of 35 to 45 cm approximately, that connect the epididymis with the ejaculatory ducts intermediating the route of the semen between these.

Steps to procedure:

1. Control and stimulation of the ovaries

The ovaries are stimulated through the administration of hormones (follicle stimulating FSH and, in some cases, luteo-stimulant LH) and the development of the cycle is controlled by ultrasound until the number and size of the follicles is adequate (only necessary a follicle for this technique). It is then when the administration of another hormone that mimics LH, (which is the hormone) that naturally causes ovulation, (LH or luteoestimulante hormone) causes the release of the ovum.

2. Preparation of the semen sample

On the same day of insemination, the man delivers the semen sample to the laboratory. The sample is treated to separate the mobile sperm from the rest. After this process, a concentration of motile sperm (several million) sufficient to perform the insemination is obtained.

3. Insemination

On the day of ovulation, the sperm sample is loaded into a thin cannula and inserted into the uterus to be injected. It is a simple, painless and very similar to any gynecological review.
