Is it inconvenient to have a tubal ligation to perform an AI?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).

Yes, in order to perform an artificial insemination, it is necessary that the fallopian tubes are functional. Having the tubes tied will prevent the egg and sperm from meeting and, therefore, fertilization will not be possible.

However, in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments do not have this requirement, since fertilization takes place outside the woman's body, that is, in the laboratory.
