An insemination procedure uses a thin, flexible tube catheter to put sperm into the woman's reproductive tract. For some couples with infertility problems, insemination can improve the chances of pregnancy. Donor sperm are used if the male partner is sterile, has an extremely low sperm count, or carries a risk of genetic disease. A woman planning to conceive without a male partner can also use donor sperm. Prior to insemination, the sperm usually are washed and concentrated placing unwashed sperm directly into the uterus can cause severe cramps.
