Donor Insemination (DI)

Donor Insemination (DI) is a treatment used when there are serious issues with the quality of the man's sperm. We also use it to treat single women and women in same-sex relationships.

Donor Insemination (DI) involves the use of sperm from a donor.

Stimulation drugs are not always required for this treatment; careful monitoring is carried out to ensure the correct time for insemination.

The sperm sample is prepared and then a soft plastic tube (catheter) is used to place them into your uterus.
