Deciding to start a family can be an exciting time. However, many infertile males, single women, and same-sex female couples lack viable sperm and require a fertility specialist to achieve pregnancy.
At Reproductive Fertility, Dr. Saadat can help you achieve your family dreams through sperm donor insemination. Sperm donor insemination is a safe and effective fertility treatment to help women become pregnant. The process is performed using donor sperm and intrauterine insemination (IUI) techniques.
There are many instances where individuals or couples can benefit from a Sperm Donor. Some examples of viable patients include:

The sperm donor process is broken up into 3 main categories. Here is what you can expect when working with a Sperm Donor.
Before your treatment can take place, you will meet with Dr. Saadat. He will go over your medical history, current reproductive health, and perform fertility diagnostic tests as needed. He will help you determine which donor sperm you’d like to use and answer any questions or concerns you may have to make sure your experience is as comfortable as possible. Dr. Saadat may suggest ovarian stimulation medication for your treatment based on your fertility needs.
Prior to the sperm donor insemination treatment, your specialist will “wash” the donated sperm to minimize the chances of infection. Washing the donor semen will separate the sperm from the seminal fluid along with any chemicals used during the freezing process. This provides a safe sample for use in the insemination process. This is similar to the IUI process.
Once the sperm sample is washed, it is carefully placed in the uterine cavity at a time carefully determined by your fertility doctor.
If you and your partner are looking for fertility solutions and feel that a sperm donor is right for you, don’t wait any longer. Our dedicated team will be happy to provide you with more information over the phone and start the consultation process.

The costs associated with a sperm donor insemination procedure can vary depending on the sperm donor, the complexity of the procedure (usually impacted by fertility concerns), and the number of attempts needed to achieve a pregnancy. Costs may also change based on the procedure location, doctor’s fees, and the costs of medications used. Dr. Saadat will be able to give you a personalized quote following your consultation.
The main benefit of the procedure is the increased chance of conception compared to traditional means. There is also a reduced chance of transmitting STDs. For patients who do not have a male contributor, the procedure can allow for families that would not otherwise be possible. This procedure is also generally less expensive than the cost of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and less invasive than an IVF procedure.
Choosing an anonymous sperm donor from a sperm bank is the most common choice. However, some patients choose a known sperm donor, which can be a family member, friend, or acquaintance who wishes to help with their pregnancy journey.
Sperm donor insemination is a very safe procedure. However, there are slightly elevated risks of infection with the procedure compared to traditional intercourse. Other risks, such as cramping or miscarriage, are extremely rare but cannot be entirely discounted.
No. At this time, there is no evidence to support the idea that sperm donor insemination or other similar fertility procedures increase the risk of birth defects, genetic diseases, or autism.
