This type of treatment is useful for single women or couples where the male partner has no sperm or a very poor sperm analysis (azoospermia, oligospermia, poor motility).
Usually, fertility medications are given to the woman prior to Donor Insemination (DI). This takes place close to the time of ovulation. Sometimes the Physician will recommend ovulation induction, LH urine testing, or ultrasound depending on the clinical situation, to time ovulation and donor insemination.
The screening, processing and distribution of donor sperm for Assisted Human Reproduction in Canada is regulated by Health Canada.
