Also known as artificial insemination, it involves the introduction of a previously prepared sperm taken from the male partner into the uterus of the female partner on the day of ovulation so as to induce fertilization and achieve pregnancy. The procedure might also involve the use of donor sperm, depending upon the need of the hour and your personal preference. Artificial insemination with donated sperm is carried out in the event of male sterility or of the intended father is suffering from some hereditary disease that you do not wish to pass on to the child
