Donor insemination may be chosen by single women in the absence of a male partner, lesbian couples seeking to have a child together, or heterosexual couples where the male partner is not producing healthy sperm for a variety of reasons.
Before beginning donor sperm treatment, we fully screen our patients for any fertility factors that may prevent a pregnancy. We will counsel you on the process of treatment and the FDA regulations that are currently in place to screen sperm donors. Our thorough screening and counseling process maximizes the safety of the treatment and ensures privacy for both the patient as well as the sperm donor. Similar to intrauterine insemination, we will help to determine your ovulation timing in order to schedule the donor insemination.
