The Process of Insemination
The artificial insemination shortens the way between the sperm and the oocyte. It is used when the sperms are limited in number and in mobility or deformed. The sperms are directly introduced into the womb at the time of the ovulation. A preliminary treatment of the sperms makes sure that only healthy and potentially successful sperms are being used. If the woman suffers from a troubled cycle, the ovulation will be stimulated hormonally. Such a stimulation is also being used in order to increase the chance of a fertilization if the quality of the sperms is not ideal by ripenning simultaneously 2 high quality oocytes.
The costs of an insemination with the partner's sperms (no foreign sperms!) are covered by the health insurance for 3 cycles per pregnancy.
