Therapeutic Donor Insemination

Therapeutic Donor Insemination (TDI) is successful and viable pregnancy option for treating severe male factor infertility, or for achieving fertility for single women or those in same-sex partnerships.

TDI involves the artificial insemination of donor sperm, or, more commonly, donor insemination (DI), into the uterus during the ovulation period.

First Steps Fertility accepts donor sperm from regulated and highly reputable sperm banks. Patients considering TDI at First Steps can rest assured that all of our donors undergo rigorous screening, including family history, complete medical, social and often psychological history, blood group information, genetic screening and transmissible disease screening, according to Canadian Federal Regulations.

Choose your donor from our list of available samples, based on physical and social characteristics, previous history, and more.

Because we pride ourselves on assisting you to make the best decision for your family, all women and couples considering TDI will meet with one of our reproductive counselors to discuss your ultimate decision, and to consider the impact that this choice may have on you or your relationship.
