Artificial insemination, or AI, is a fertilization procedure in which sperm is artificially placed into a woman's cervix (intracervical insemination) or uterus (intrauterine insemination). A couple that produces healthy sperm and eggs but is unable to have intercourse, possibly due to a medical condition, such as erectile dysfunction, can be helped to conceive in this way. During artificial insemination treatment, the woman's menstrual cycle is closely monitored using ovarian kits, ultrasounds, and blood tests. The semen to be implanted is “washed” in a laboratory, which increases the chances of fertilization while removing unnecessary, potentially harmful chemicals. The semen is inserted into the woman, and if the procedure is successful, she conceives. Artificial insemination procedures are advanced forms of fertility treatment that involve the use of a thin, flexible tube to precisely place donor sperm into a woman's reproductive tract. Depends on a woman's age and the quality of the man's sperm, in general there's a 15 to 20 percent chance of conception per cycle, with a 60 to 70 percent chance of pregnancy after 6 cycles. The gynecologist will suggest different procedures for the couple to conceive and be happy parents to healthy babies, which include artificial insemination and natural insemination.
