Artificial insemination is a treatment for infertility that involves directly inserting sperm into a woman’s womb. In cases where donor sperm is used the woman is the gestational and genetic mother of the child produced, and the sperm donor is the genetic or biological father of the child. It is a procedure that requires a sperm donation. The sperm will be inserted into the woman’s vagina or directly into the uterus. A pregnancy resulting from artificial insemination will be no different from a pregnancy achieved by sexual intercourse. However, there may be a slight increased likelihood of multiple births if drugs are used by the woman for a 'stimulated' cycle.
