Indications of Artificial Insemination

Male Partner :

  1. Inability to ejaculate into the vagina.
  2. This can occur in a number of clinical conditions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
  3. Trauma or injury to the spinal cord following a road traffic accident.
  4. Retrograde ejaculation.
  5. A condition where the sperms enter the urinary bladder rather than coming down the male urethra. This can be caused due to diseases like diabetes.
  6. It can also result from an operation or surgery that destroys the value that prevents the backflow of sperms into the urethra.
  7. Less commonly it can be the result of some drugs used for treatment purposes.
  8. Men with sperm count lower than that required for successful fertilization
  9. Men with poor quality sperms that poses difficulties with fertilization
  10. Mechanical difficulties with intercourse (Structural abnormalities of the penis owing to trauma or injury).
  11. Patients who wish to store their sperms prior to radiotherapy or chemotherapy
  12. Patients who wish to store their sperm before vasectomy (Reversal of vasectomy is surgically expensive invasive and the success rate is highly variable.
  13. Utilization of stored semen sample for fertilization when husband is not available at the appropriate timing for treatment. It is indeed frustrating when the male partner is unavailable during optimal time for the procedure. It also helps preserve the time and finances from being wasted due to unforeseen circumstances.

The article is really good. The artificial insemination is really helpful for those couple who doesn't have children. The method is simple and affordable. The couple can have siblings of their own gene. ================== Jack Wide Circles
