How to Get Pregnant with Sperm Donour

Obtaining Sperms

The foremost step in preparing for insemination is to obtain frozen donour sperm. To collect the sperm, you may consult a sperm bank or ask your male friend to donate. Your medical professional at fertility clinic will collect the sperm and freeze it for insemination. You can ask your fertility centre to recommend a sperm bank, with which it has worked before. If you fail to find any appropriate donor, then you can find several donors on the internet.

Sperm Test

Once you have obtained the donour's sperm, get it tested for motility, morphology and count. Sperm has minimum chances of successful fertilisation if they fail to meet the criteria.


Step 1

For successful insemination, chart or follow your menstrual cycle. To do this, you need to follow your basal body temperature. Take the temperature every morning without getting out of the bed. Do not engage in any other activity. Your basal body temperature is different during your period when compared with other days.  It rises at the time of ovulation and remains high until the end of the cycle. To increase the chances of pregnancy on the very first try, ask your doctor if you can take fertility medication during your cycle. fertility medication helps one produce more than one egg during the cycle.

During your cycle, the medical professional at the fertility clinic will monitor egg maturation by performing blood work and ultrasounds. Insemination is performed when the mature egg is about to release.

Step 3

This step will require you to be hospitalised at the fertility clinic for one or two days. The insemination will be carried out using frozen donour sperm. The sample will be taken into a catheter and then inserted into your cervix. After this, the sperm will be injected into the uterus. If the insemination is successful, the sperm will fertilise the egg and your pregnancy tests will show positive.
