An insemination is often performed in cases of male procreativity issues. If the sperm count and motility are reduced or if the amount of malformed sperms is high, insemination could bring the desired success. An insemination is also helpful when there are antibodies in the mucus of the uterine cervix. They prevent the sperm cells from making their way to the egg cell.
Ovulation is a prerequisite for obtaining pregnancy. To accomplish this, a follicle containing the ovum is formed in the first days of the monthly cycle. When this follicle reaches a size of 18 to 24 millimeters, a hormonal signal is sent out by the pituitary gland. This causes the follicle to burst and the contained fluid transports the egg cell directly into the tube. There, the ovum awaits fertilization by a sperm cell.
