Given that intrauterine insemination by donor is a simple process at the technical level, its price is lower than that of donor-sperm in vitro fertilization.
Artificial insemination by donor stands for a low-complexity technique, which translates into a lower overall cost if compared to donor-sperm IVF. In Spain, the price of this technique ranges from €800 to €1,500.
In vitro fertilization is a fertility procedure through which egg-sperm binding occurs in the laboratory, aiming at obtaining an embryo that will be later transferred into the woman so that pregnancy occurs.
A pregnancy in which more than a single embryo implants into the maternal womb is known as “multiple births”. The most common type of multiple births are twins, and most of them occur as a consequence of assisted reproductive treatments.
Dr Manuel Fernández stands for a single embryo transfer and the freezing of the remaining embryos for further transfer. Thus, potential risks derived from multiple gestations are prevented.
There are some problems associated with in vitro fertilisation, mainly due to the previous ovarian stimulation that women undergo, which may cause ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and/or multiple births.
The FSH is a type of gonadotropic hormone which regulates the reproductive cycle in men and women. For the assisted reproductive treatments, it is prescribed to women for ovulation induction.
Factors that can cause the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) are related to the status of women’s health and previous menstrual cycles.
This syndrome occurs in women when an abnormally exaggerated ovarian response occurs. It may occur naturally or as a consequence of hormone administration during assisted reproductive treatments.
