Sperm Donor IUI is one of the most popular and well-utilized procedures in the field of ART (Assisted Reproduction Technique). Sperm donor or heterologous insemination also knows IUI as artificial insemination. Once the woman finds a right candidate for Sperm Donor Intra Uterine Insemination, the procedure is commenced and completed successfully. Frozen sperm sample from the sperm banks or fresh sperm sample can be utilized during the process depending upon the requirements of the woman undergoing treatment. The main difference between Sperm Donor IUI and IUI is that in sperm donor IUI, the sperms utilized during the process are from the male who is not that woman’s sexual partner. Let’s discuss in detail the procedure, benefits, and drawbacks of Sperm donor IUI.

What is the procedure of Sperm Donor IUI?

There are a series of steps, which are followed in the case of Sperm Donor Intra Uterine Insemination.

1. Ovarian Stimulation:

Mild ovarian stimulation is done at the doctor’s office. This helps to form a firm base for a successful intrauterine procedure Ovarian stimulation includes administration of fertility drugs in the female body to ensure desired growth and development of the egg.

2. Ovulation Induction or Triggering the Egg Release:

Once the ovarian stimulation is done successfully and the follicles have reached their desired size, ovulation induction is performed to trigger the release of eggs/oocytes from the mature follicles. It is known that egg release takes place after 36-40 hours of hCG trigger shot or ovulation induction.

3. Donor sperm Thawing Process:

Most of the times, the frozen sperm sample is used to carry out donor sperm IUI. Frozen sperm sample needs to be at room temperature before it can be used for insemination. For bringing back the sperm sample’s temperature at room temperature, the thawing process is used. The frozen sperm sample is left at room temperature thus letting it melt. This helps the donor sperm to become fluid in nature. It is important to note that once the frozen sperm is melted at room temperature, it cannot be frozen again.

So, it is made sure that the frozen sperm is melted only during the procedure to avoid wasting it. This step is performed when the ovulation is about to happen in the woman undergoing treatment.

4. Insemination:

The last step of the Sperm Donor Intra Uterine Insemination is Insemination. The donor sperms are inserted inside the uterus of the woman with the help of a syringe via the vagina.

This completes the procedure of Sperm Donor Intra Uterine Insemination successfully.

What are the drawbacks of Sperm Donor IUI?

There are certain drawbacks that are associated with Sperm Donor IUI which make it challenging for the individuals to opt for Sperm Donor Intra Uterine Insemination.

  • Due to a tough screening process, only a few sperm donors are eligible for sperm donation. HEFA, a government body keeps a watch on sperm donors and their important information. This makes it quite challenging for the individuals to apply and pass the screening with all legal formalities. This leads to lesser number of Sperm Donors available for Sperm Donor IUI procedure.
  • Singles or couples need to follow the laws of donor insemination. Also, most of the clinics have their own set of regulations, which makes it difficult for them to find the donors.

Thus, Sperm Donor IUI is useful for having babies if the male fertility levels are affected or if a woman is single. You can utilize this procedure to have your own healthy baby.

So, I and my wife have been trying to get a baby. Then when we were not successful and consulted a gynecologist, then found that the problem was with me. So, at that point donor sperm seemed to be a good option for me.
