Historically, artificial insemination was the first technique applied to modify human reproduction almost 100 years ago. Here are two types of artificial insemination - Artificial Insemination by Husband (AIH) and Artificial Insemination by Donor (AID). Both are now widely used.

AIH

This technique is used for some couples who cannot otherwise conceive and, if for example, it is felt that the chances of pregnancy would be increased by concentrating the husband's semen or by inserting it directly into the uterus. Other reasons for AIH occur:

  • When the husband cannot ejaculate but instead passes his semen into the bladder (retrograde ejaculation).
  • For some couples where the husband is severely physically handicapped and AIH offers the only possibility for him to father a child.
  • If a man is to undergo surgery or radiotherapy that may result in sterility, his semen may be stored by deep freezing and used at a late date for AIH . More recently semen has been similarly stored by some men before they undergo vasectomy as a means of permanent contraception.
  • Less commonly, AIH may be used to overcome a particular type of female infertility where antibodies which kill the sperm are found in the cervical mucus. In such cases AIH may be successful when the semen is injected into the uterus.

AID

Artificial Insemination by Donor is used when investigations have shown the husband to be infertile or to have significantly reduced fertility. For AID, semen is donated by another man. AID has also been used when a fertile husband stiffens from, or may be the carrier of, a serious hereditary condition for example, Huntington's Chorea; and the couple decide that they will not risk passing on the husband's condition to the next generation.

Both AIH and AID may be carried out using fresh or frozen semen. There have been many successful pregnancies using frozen semen , although the proportion of successful inseminations is not as high as if is with fresh semen. For AIH and AID the semen may either be placed in the upper portion of the vagina next to the cervix or injected into the uterus through a fine catheter.
