Sperm donor sperm is usually used to help a woman to become pregnant via iui treatment or iui procedure and sperm insemination.IUI is the treatment of infertility

Sperm donation is the provision by male infertility (known as a sperm donor) of his sperm (known as a donor sperm), principally for the purpose of inseminating a female who is not his sexual partner. Sperm may be donated privately or through a sperm bank or fertility clinic for infertility treatments. Principally, sperm donation is done for the purpose of iui or iui procedure or for iui treatment, to the female who is not his sexual partner.

Donor sperm is usually used to help a woman to become pregnant via donor insemination. It’s not the cumbersome procedure where a fine tube or syringe with the donor sperm inside is inserted into the vagina of the recipient's cervix or uterus during the woman’s fertile time of the month. Principally, sperm donation is done for the purpose of iui or iui procedure or for iui treatment, to the female who is not his sexual partner. It can also be used as part of IVF if necessary. Sperm donation is the treatment of infertility or it is also a great option if you’re having a baby alone.

Sperm donor, IUI procedure

What is sperm donation?

Sperm donation is the process by which a man donates his sperm to a recipient and it is used to conceive and produce a baby in a woman's womb who is not the donor’s sexual partner or have infertility issues or seeking the infertility treatments. Donor sperm is used in many methods like IVF, IUI, etc.

When to go for sperm donation?

If female’s partner isn’t producing enough healthy sperm (Male infertility) to get pregnant or to conceive, or he wants to avoid passing on an inherited disease then a healthy donated sperm can be used. It is also used to help single women and coupled lesbians to have children. Principally, sperm donation is done for the purpose of iui or iui procedure or for iui treatment, to the female who is not his sexual partner.

How does sperm donation work?

Sperm is donated by a healthy man to a sperm bank or fertility clinic for the purpose of artificially inseminating a female. 

Donor sperm is used to fertilize an egg inside the body. This is commonly known as donor insemination (DI). The sperm is passed through a fine plastic tube that enters the cervix and reaches out into the womb. Treatment happens around the time you ovulate to boost the chance of conceiving. Principally, sperm donation is done for the purpose of iui or iui procedure or for iui treatment, to the female who is not his sexual partner. Doctors may suggest you take a fertility drug to increase the number of eggs you produce.

Sperm donor, IUI

Then again, donor sperm can fertilize eggs in a laboratory, using IVF. This means your eggs would be surgically expelled, then fertilized by the sperm, in a lab. Then the egg (now called an embryo) is then placed back into your womb to ideally grow and develop. This infertility treatment can take the time to give out the results. 

Why every man can’t become a sperm donor?

Following are the reasons why every man can't be a sperm donor:

  • Donor must be healthy and heterosexual
  • Age of donor must be under 20 to 40 years
  • Nowadays a well-educated male can only donate sperm
  • Donor have to pass screening and interview test
  • Screening of STD testing and screening for genetic diseases
  • No chronic health problems and addictions

A bit surprising that even a donor has so many criteria to qualify as a sperm donor. Educational qualification is something I don't understand because the child will acquire education only after getting born.

Sperm donor needs to have a healthy sperm count. Any addiction can damage the sperms.

IVF treatment is quite effective than IUI. It helps even those women who cannot conceive due to breast cancer or uterine cancer.
