人工授精(Artificial Insemination,AI)は自然ではなく、人為的に精液を生殖器に注入することによって妊娠を実現することを目的とした技術です。2種類に分別され:(1)夫の精子を使用する場合にAIH (Artificial Insemination by Husband)と呼ばれ; (2)精子提供者の精子を使用する場合に、AID (Artificial Insemination by Donor)に呼ばれます。

STEP

01

Inducing release of more eggs

The first step induces release more mature eggs. In the general menstrual cycle, usually one egg matures. The ovulation stimulating medicineachieves simultaneous maturation of multiple eggs, so that the pregnant rate increases.

STEP

02

02 HCG Injection

Ultrasound and blood tests accurately monitor the size and the condition of the follicles, and we choose the best timing to administrate HCG to help the egg retrieval.

STEP

03

Take semen

The donating semen is washed in order to remove unnecessary substancesin the laboratory, and is directly injected into the woman's uterus. This process can avoid the interference in vagina or cervix.

STEP

04

Take a pregnancy test 14 days after the procedure.

Take a pregnancy test 14 days after the procedure.

Factors affecting success rate

The number of sperm in men (if the number of active sperm is less than 10 million, the success rate is lower; below 5 million, the effect of artificial conception is not good, you need to consider making IVF.)

Sperm activity

Female ovarian response (the ovulation-inducing drug used and the number of follicles induced)

Female age (directly affects the quality of the egg)

Tubal adhesion

Pelvic environment
