What's on next

Once you have decided to have a child through donor insemination, it is a good idea to do some tests at your doctors, but it is not a requirement.

Blood samples

  • Hepatitis B: HBsAg Anti-HBc
  • Hepatitis C: Anti-HCV Ab
  • HIV 1 +2: Anti-HIV-1 / 2
  • FSH, LH and oestradiol (must be on 2nd or 3rd day of your menstrual cycle) this only by irregular cycles.
  • Rubella (red dog) if you are unsure about your immune status.

Grafts

  • Chlamydia: grafting from the cervix, but a urine sample can tell today.
  • Smear: Cell scraping from the cervix if it is more than two years since you last got it done.

 

These test is not compulsory but it is a good idea to take them.

Gynecologist

If you have previously had one or more infections in the uterus or fallopian tubes, or had chlamydia or gonorrhea, may have formed some scar tissue in the fallopian tubes, thereby preventing passage of both eggs and sperm. Some women may also have had infections in the abdomen, without having had any symptoms.

Therefore, we think it is a good idea that you are examined by a gynecologist before you start your insemination process in order to get an overview of your chance of pregnancy.
