Using donor sperm is a viable option and often very successful for fertilization if a couple is not able to achieve pregnancy through intercourse.
Sometimes artificial insemination can be achieved using the husband's sperm. In the clinical setting, the sperm is collected. The easiest way is for the man to masterbate and ejaculate into a collection cup or tube. The sperm is washed and delivered into the woman's vagina close to the cervical opening or into the uterus.
If, on the other hand, the husband has been diagnosed with male infertility, the use of donated sperm, called donor insemination, can be arranged. The success rate is very high if a woman is under the age of 35 and otherwise healthy.
The sperm is usually purchased from a sperm bank and the identity of the donor is not known by the couple.
If the couple is using a surrogate, through a surrogacy clinic, either the husband's sperm or sperm from a friend (or sperm bank) is used to inseminate the surrogate.
