Sperm donation is a method form of IVF for men whom for certain reasons cannot produce sperm; do not have sufficient sperm count or whose sperms are not healthy enough to produce a good quality embryo. The procedure involves producing an embryo, by using the sperm of a healthy donor and the future-mother’s eggs, and placing it inside the patient’s womb.
Thanks to our sophisticated donor eggs program, one of the biggest in Europe, we have a unique opportunity to also offer treatment with donor embryos.
Depending on the number and morphological features of sperm, when fertilizing eggs with sperm, two methods are used: typical test tube baby (IVF) or microinjection (ICSI). Microinjection / ICSI. Injecting sperms into the ovum is called the microinjection [intracytoplasmic sperm injection, ICSI].
