Donor insemination DI is the process of inseminating a woman with sperm obtained from a known or anonymous donor. The procedure is usually performed in natural cycles without the use of any fertility medications. However, fertility medication may be recommended for women in their late 30's and older, and for those who have been unsuccessful with donor insemination in natural cycles, in order to increase the number of eggs for fertilization. If insemination with donor sperm is unsuccessful, or if there are other fertility factors that indicate the need, in vitro fertilization IVF with donor sperm may be performed. Sperm donors may be known or anonymous. The type of donor one chooses is a highly personal decision, and will depend on any number of factors.
