According to Valeria Sotelo, MD, there exist various requirements that are crucial for a patient to be able to undergo Artificial Insemination (AI), being tubal patency the first of all. Other essential tests are HSH (hysterosalpingography), which is used to assess tubal patency as well. As for the semen sample, the total motile sperm concentration must be above 3 million sperm after sperm capacitation.
