Artificial insemination is a process of placing concentrated sperm – either from one of the hopeful parents or a donor – directly into the uterus, using a catheter. This procedure is performed on the day after the ovary releases one or several eggs. Artificial insemination can either be performed in synchronization with your menstrual cycle, or in conjunction with a treatment such as induction of ovulation.
Sperm used in this process can either come from a person known by the hopeful parents or from a sperm bank. Sperm banks commonly have a very stringent and selective process to determine eligible donors. Before pursuing donated sperm, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dorsett to discuss the artificial insemination process at our Lubbock, West Texas office. There are numerous factors that can affect the success of this treatment, and we are happy to educate our patients so they fully understand how this procedure can help them.
Induction of Ovulation
In the simplest terms, the induction of ovulation involves taking various medication or hormones to stimulate the development of the follicles needed to conceive. Medications commonly given include clomiphene citrate, luteinizing hormone, and human menopausal gonadotropin. As noted, this procedure can complement artificial insemination. It is also an important part of the in vitro fertilization procedure.
