Treatment: Artificial Insemination

Artificial insemination is a procedure to introduce sperm into a woman’s vagina or uterus. Sperm from the woman’s partner or from a donor is drawn into a syringe and injected into the top of the vagina or through the cervix into the uterus. The procedure is painless and takes only minutes, and the woman can go home after half an hour of rest.

Artificial insemination

The vagina is held open by a speculum so that sperm can be injected into the top of the vagina or into the uterus.
