Insemination with the Partner´s Sperm – Homologous Insemination
Artificial inseminations are an uncomplicated way to get pregnant if the quality of the sperm is only mildly deficient, or if the sperm and the cervical mucus are not compatible.
Shortly before ovulation, a processed and highly concentrated sample of the partner’s sperm is placed directly in the uterine cavity with the help of a soft plastic catheter. This procedure is not any different for the woman than a routine cancer screening test.
In certain cases it may be wise to combine hormone therapy with artificial insemination, in order to achieve a higher pregnancy rate.
