Artificial Insemination By Donor

AID is a procedure where a fine catheter (tube) is inserted through the cervix (the natural opening of the uterus) into the uterus (the womb) to allow for the direct deposit of donor sperm (other than the woman’s partner) directly into the uterus.

AID is a good procedure for same sex couples and single females desiring to become pregnant.

Is donor insemination safe?
Donor insemination has been demonstrated to be very safe. Donors accepted by sperm banks are required to present extensive family and personal medical histories. They are also given thorough medical evaluation that includes screenings for sexually transmitted diseases, the presence of HIV antibodies, and history of genetic disorders.

Pregnancy resulting from donor insemination carries no greater health risk than pregnancy resulting from intercourse.

How successful is donor insemination in achieving pregnancy?
The best success rates of using donor insemination are in the cases where the woman is free of any fertility issues and under the age of 35 years old.
