It is important to get exhaustive information about the process, which you can obtain through:
Talking to the gynaecologist specialist in Assisted Reproduction, who will explain the treatment regimen to induce ovulation, how the ultrasound controls are carried out, possible risks, etc.
Having an interview with a psychologist specialized in the Assisted Reproduction techniques. A psychological preparation is key to face the emotional changes that arise during the treatment and, whatever the outcome is, make the patients perceive it as a positive experience. This is an optional consultation.
Administrative information about the cost of the technique.
Physician of the Year in Assisted Reproduction 2019
Dr. Marisa López-Teijón’s opinion
““Toxics are breaking our balls”. Under this motto, we want to alert about the environmental pollution caused by chemical toxics, which is the main cause of the worsening of the males’ sperm quality. Our scientific studies confirm it: they show that the causes classically attributed to this worsening (such as stress, tight pants, alcohol, etc.) are a myth and that the origin of the problem are indeed chemical toxics (endocrine disruptors)”.Read more.
What should be done if any doubt or problem arises during the treatment?
Get in touch with the medical team.
Institut Marquès provides patients with a telephone number where doctors can be located 24/7, so that they can talk with one of the assisted reproduction specialists.
What tests are necessary before proceeding with an artificial insemination?
Doctors and biologists need some data from the patients. These are the main ones:
Ultrasound to confirm that the uterus and the ovaries are in good condition to start the treatment.
Hysterosalpingography to confirm the permeability of the Fallopian tubes. It is necessary that, at least one of them, is perfectly functional, so that the insemination can be successful.
Complete hormone test.
Seminogram (sperm analysis) in order to confirm that, once boosted, it can be apt to fertilize the oocytes that are waiting in the Fallopian tubes.
Is a written consent needed?
Yes, it is a legal requirement for the couple to sign a specific consent agreement about the Assisted Reproduction technique that they will be carrying out.
In it, they will sign that they have properly been informed of the medical, biological, legal, ethic and economical terms and that they understand and accept them. The medical team at Institut Marquès is always available to solve any doubt patients may have.
What risks does intrauterine insemination pose?
The main risks are:
Multiple pregnancy. There is approximately a 20-25% of twin pregnancies. The risk of having triplets is really low (<5%) and, should it happen, it is always possible to resort to embryonic reduction.
Ectopic pregnancy: That is, the embryo implants outside of the uterine cavity. After insemination, it has an incidence of 2-3%.
The ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. An excessive swelling of the ovaries and fluid shift occurs, as well as abdominal bloating. Patients with polycystic ovaries are the ones with a higher risk.
