Artificial insemination with donor sperm

If you do not live in Spain...

You only need to visit to Ginemed once.

The pre-treatment tests can be sent by email, fax or brought to the free initial information consultation.

We evaluate your results and programme the treatment for the date of your choice.

The treatment controls can be done in your home country.

Treatment stages

Fase de estimulación y controles
Ovarian stimulation and controls

The aim of this phase is to promote the development of one or more of the follicles that are found in the ovaries. The process is controlled by vaginal ultrasounds (normally 2-3). Once the follicles have reached the desired size, another medication (HCG) is administered to trigger ovulation and programme the most appropriate moment for insemination.

Fase de muestra de semen e Inseminación
Semen sample and insemination

On the day of the insemination the donated semen sample is processed in the reproduction laboratory in order to select the best quality sperm The insemination is undertaken in the consultation room, using a thin, flexible catheter and it is not painful. It is not necessary to rest after the insemination.

Fase de tratamiento tras la inseminación
Post-insemination treatment

Usually, after the insemination we prescribe a treatment of vaginal progesterone, to increase the chances of a pregnancy. We also recommend taking folic acid.

Fase de confirmación de embarazo
Confirmation of pregnancy

14 days after the embryo transfer, a blood analysis (B-HCG) is carried out to confirm the pregnancy. Do not suspend the medication without instruction from your gynaecologist regardless of the results.

Fase de ecografía

15 days after the B-HCG analysis, an ultrasound scan must be carried out to confirm the gestation (single or multiple) and to confirm the presence of a fetal heartbeat.

Sperm donors

Sperm donation is a voluntary, anonymous and altruistic act and therefore Spanish law does not allow the recipient to provide or choose their own donor.

We are only able to provide general information about the donor (and never reveal their identity).

All donors must be of legal age and have passed a series of tests to rule out: immunological, genetic and hereditary illnesses, and infectious and transmissible diseases.

The responsibility for selecting the donor lies with the medical team, who are duty bound to find the donor who best meets the characteristics for each individual case.

Neither the woman, nor her partner (if she has one) can refute parentage of any child born.

In Spain, The maximum number of children born from each donor is six.


Pregnancy rates depend greatly on the age of the woman and the reason why the treatment is being undertaken. However, they will never be greater than those of a natural pregnancy in a fertile couple having unprotected relations, and are usually around 20% pregnancy/month.
