Artificial insemination

Artificial insemination is used in our Center for treating some of the infertility types. The method is essentially the injection of especially prepared sperm into the female uterine cavity with the use of a catheter. The method reproduces natural conception to the maximum extent. Advantages: Sperm preparation enabling improvement in its quality is performed prior to the AI. It is also possible to use donor sperm.

Artificial insemination

Artificial insemination is used in the following cases:

  • moderate impairment of the sperm quality
  • immune response against spermatozoa
  • cervical pathology

A precondition for the insemination procedure is the preserved functioning of the fallopian tubes.

Artificial insemination procedure:

  • Hormonal therapy, i.e., stimulation of superovulation by medication. The stimulation may be omitted, but this will reduce the probability of getting pregnant.
  • Obtaining the partner’s sperm. Native (fresh) sperm may be used for insemination within 2 hours after its collection. In accordance with the WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines, we only use especially treated sperm for insemination.
  • Compulsory treatment of the sperm: it is condensed, settled, centrifuged, deproteinized (the protein may cause allergic reactions), that is, it is made more concentrated and free from pathological “inactive” spermatozoa and infections.
  • A catheter is used to inject the sperm into the uterine cavity (the woman is in a gynecological chair), on the day that is favorable for getting pregnant (based on ultrasound and hormonal monitoring data).

Artificial insemination


We use the active artificial insemination method consisting of repeated sperm injection into the cavity: on the day of ovulation and on the next day after ovulation.
