N98.8: Other complications associated with artificial fertilization

You have undergone artificial insemination. Problems were experienced during artificial insemination.

There are different methods of artificial insemination. One procedure involves preparing sperm. The sperm is then placed in the uterus or fallopian tubes. Another procedure involves mature egg cells being removed from the ovaries. Some of these egg cells are then artificially inseminated in the laboratory. One or more egg cells are then placed in the uterus or a fallopian tube.

The uterus or womb sits in the pelvis and is pear-shaped. The narrower part extends downward into the vagina and is called the cervix. When a woman is pregnant, the child grows in her uterus.

The two fallopian tubes go to the right and left of the ovaries towards the womb. They are like tubes and they transport the egg cells from the ovaries to the uterus.

You experienced problems during artificial insemination.
