In cases of Azoospermia or when the patient does not have a male partner, IUI using donor frozen sperm is central to their treatment.
Frozen sperm can be purchased for insemination through sperm banks. Frozen sperm can be sold as IUI (intrauterine insemination) or ICI (intracervical insemination) quality.
IUI quality frozen sperm:
For an IUI sample, sperm are processed and then frozen to be ready for use after thawing at the physician’s office.
ICI quality frozen sperm:
In contrast, an ICI sample requires further processing after thawing at the physician’s office before it is used for IUI. An IUI sample usually costs more than an ICI sample but often yields more motile sperm for insemination.
