Information for Donors Sperm donation
DI - Donor Insemination
Subjects such as cloning, genetic engineering and preimplantation diagnostics (PID) are being discussed everywhere. However, one subject is still little discussed, so-called "heterologous" insemination, better known as donor insemination. This is because despite enormous progress in the field of modern reproductive medicine, this method also continues to help parents make their dream come true - the dream to have a child.
Couples may decide on this method of treatment for a variety of reasons:
if the man is suffering from absolute infertility (in other words, an absence of sperm cells even in the testicular tissue)
if hereditary disease are present, after radiotherapy for cancer or due to deformities
if there is a risk of conceiving a child with a hereditary defect
in cases of relative infertility (poor sperm quality) and if modern reproductive medicine procedures such as IVF and ICSI are rejected
or after the unsuccessful performance of these procedures.
