How artificial insemination is done?

In artificial insemination, an expert injects the sperm into the cervix, fallopian tube, or uterus of the intended mother. The sperm that is injected into the intended mother uterus could be of the intended father, male partner, a known person, or anonymous donor sperm.

Before injecting it into the uterus, cervix, or fallopian tube, the sperm is washed to remove chemicals from the semen to prevent any type of discomfort that could be caused by it during the process. This is part of the treatment. Through sperm washing, an adequate amount of healthy sperm is pulled out that is later injected into the intended mother uterus, cervix, or fallopian tube.

For the semen collection, the doctor suggests the intended father or partner provide the sample in the clinic or if the couple is staying nearby to the hospital then the male partner can collect the semen sample at home. The reason is that the semen sample needs to be washed within an hour of semen collection. In the case of donor sperm, the sperm is already washed and ready for the process.  

There are two techniques to perform artificial insemination; IUI (intrauterine insemination) and ICI (intracervical insemination).  That we are going to discuss further.

How intracervical insemination is performed?

In ICI or intracervical insemination, an expert injects the sperm into the cervix. Cervix is the passageway outside the uterus. Below is the step-by-step process of ICI.

  • In some cases, the doctor prescribes medicines to the intended mother for producing multiple eggs in a month. The intended mother will track her ovulation cycle with the help of a calendar and ultrasound. 
  • Once she is in her ovulation period, the intended father will collect his semen sample at home (if nearby the hospital or clinic) or a clinic.
  • Then the sperm will be inserted into the intended mother’s cervix with the help of a special syringe or with the help of a cervical cap.
  • The doctor will ask the intended mother to lie down for twenty to thirty minutes. This helps sperm to travel into the uterus through the cervix.
  • After that, the intended mother can get back to her regular activities.
  • Fifteen to twenty days later, she can do the pregnancy test to verify the pregnancy.

How intrauterine insemination is performed?

Unlike ICI, in IUI or intrauterine insemination, the sperm is directly injected into the uterus. The performing method is similar to ICI but there are few additional elements in this process.

The semen uses in IUI is washed which means the proteins that can create a barrier in fertilization are removed before inserting into the uterus.

The doctor uses an instrument called a speculum to access the uterus easily. After that with the help of a thin instrument doctor inserts the sperm directly into the uterus.

Rest the procedure is the same as ICI which is

  • The intended mother will track her ovulation cycle with the help of a calendar and ultrasound. 
  • Once she is in her ovulation period, the intended father will collect his semen sample at home (if nearby the hospital or clinic) or a clinic.
  • Then the washed sperm will be inserted into the intended mother’s uterus with the help of a thin instrument.
  • The doctor will ask the intended mother to lie down for twenty to thirty minutes. This helps sperm to travel into the uterus through the cervix.
  • After that, the intended mother can get back to her regular activities.
