What is Artificial Insemination in Belgium

Artificial insemination is a fertility treatment method that involves the introduction of sperm into a woman's reproductive tract using medical techniques rather than through sexual intercourse. This procedure is commonly used to assist couples who are experiencing infertility or to enable single women or same-sex couples to conceive. The process begins with a consultation with a fertility specialist who will evaluate the couple's medical history, perform a physical examination, and conduct tests to assess fertility factors such as ovarian function, sperm quality, and the patency of the fallopian tubes (if applicable). Based on the evaluation, the specialist will determine if artificial insemination is an appropriate treatment option.

Sperm preparation: Prior to insemination, the sperm sample (either from the male partner or a sperm donor) undergoes a process called sperm washing. This involves separating the sperm from the seminal fluid and any debris, as well as concentrating the sperm to increase the chances of successful fertilization.Ovarian stimulation: In some cases, ovarian stimulation may be recommended to enhance the chances of conception. This involves the administration of fertility medications (such as clomiphene citrate or gonadotropins) to stimulate the growth and maturation of multiple follicles in the ovaries, increasing the likelihood of ovulation and the release of multiple eggs.

Monitoring: Throughout the ovarian stimulation process, the woman's reproductive cycle is closely monitored through blood tests and ultrasound examinations to track the development of follicles in the ovaries and determine the optimal timing for insemination.Insemination procedure: Once the woman is determined to be at the appropriate stage of her cycle, the prepared sperm sample is introduced into the woman's reproductive tract using a thin catheter. The procedure may be performed either intracervically (into the cervix) or intrauterinely (directly into the uterus) depending on factors such as sperm quality and the woman's anatomy.

Overall, artificial insemination is a relatively simple and non-invasive fertility treatment option that can be highly effective for couples with certain types of infertility or reproductive challenges. However, success rates can vary depending on factors such as sperm quality, the woman's age, and the underlying cause of infertility.

Artificial insemination is very often confused with in vitro fertilization procedure. In 95% of cases what couples need is an i.v.f. protocol and not an artificial insemination. Artificial insemination is a common word since its invention but it is advised only for couples that have problems to conceive, IVF is the right procedure is almost all cases so you shall refer to this type of procedure and its protocol.
