It is considerably known that one third of infertility cases, there has been a problem with the sperm and there may be too few or the motility could be impaired , and the sperm may be abnormal or there could be no sperm at all. Some cases, where the use of the partner’s sperm carries risks of inheritable conditions and there is a decision to be made by the couple to use sperm donation.
There are two treatments involved on using donor sperm:
- The first one is donor insemination(DI) which can be used in cases where there is only male factor infertility
- The second approach is IVF with the donor sperm, which is used when there are other fertility factors, e.g. the woman has blocked fallopian tubes.
