IUI using donor sperm: process step by step

Technically, the process followed to perform an intrauterine insemination (IUI) with donor sperm does not differ from that of IUI with the husband's sperm.

In both procedures, it involves stimulating the patient's ovarian cycle, preparing the semen sample (thawing process), and inserting it vaginally inside the uterine cavity of the woman using an insemination cannula. Then, the sperms are expected to be able to travel toward the Fallopian tubes, so that at least one of them fertilizes the oocyte.
