The program of insemination by the husband’s sperm includes: consultations of the doctor, laboratory treatment of sperm by an embryologist, evaluation of the sperm quality before and after the treatment, the cost of extendable materials and the environment for performing the laboratory procedure, the cost of a catheter and expendable materials for performing the insemination and the cost of the procedure itself.
The insemination with the husband’s sperm can be performed in a natural cycle (without stimulation of ovulation). For this purpose, the patient should be examined (hormonal and infectious screening), it should be made certain that the ovulation is preserved, uterine tubes are patent, the patient is young (under 30 years old), she should have good follicular reserve.
In case of detection of any hormonal changes or ovulatory failures, the correction of hormone disruptions is administered before the insemination, and then stimulation of ovulation is performed. Depending on the hormone disruptions detected, sometimes the treatment of hormone disruptions is performed. It is very difficult to explicitly answer the question of the cost of hormonal agents that may be prescribed by the doctor. It depends upon the kind of the pathology detected or the combination of pathological changes. The question of the medications’ cost is individual, it depends largely upon the pathological changes, follicular reserve, age of the patient, her body weight, etc.
The ultrasonic diagnosis in the course of the program of insemination with the husband’s sperm is performed 2 or 3 times.
