AIH vs. AID, what's the difference?

By Sara Salgado.
Last Update: 01/30/2017

With AIH, the husband's or partner's sperm is used, while AID involves using donor sperm to achieve a pregnancy. Also, the success rates of AID are normally higher than those of partner insemination, as donors are young men able to produce high-quality semen samples.

On the other hand, with AID the child will not share the intended father's genetic material in case it is used by a heterosexual couple.
