Gone are the stereotypes of the traditional family. Now more than ever, being a single mother with a donor is really comfortable if you choose the right professionals. In fivmadrid we know how important it is to take the big step for you, so we will explain how to become a single mother so you can fulfill the most beautiful project of your life.

How to become a single mother, explained step by step

You have already decided to take the big step, but you may not know where to start. Don’t worry, at fivmadrid we are at your disposal to help you as much as possible.

We will arrange a first visit in which you can ask all the questions you want and we will solve your doubts. In addition, throughout the treatment we will be happy to assist you in any way we can. This consultation can be done on-line or in person, we adapt to you!

This first visit is useful to know your medical history and analyze all the information you have. Any studies that are needed, such as analysis, we will ask for them without any problem. This may include analysis of the functionality of the ovary, the patency of the tubes and the adequacy of the uterine cavity.

After this first contact, our doctor will decide which treatment is the best fit for you. We will explain the rationale for our decision, the medications needed and the expected results. At this step of the process, our patient care team will also contact you to give you an individualized quotation and explain the available financing modalities.

The period of time that elapses between this first phase and the start of treatment will depend on the information we have available to give you a diagnosis. If we have all the tests and this leads to a clear diagnosis and treatment, you will be able to start the process directly.

If, on the other hand, the doctor indicates that the medical history needs to be completed, this part may take a little longer. As soon as the doctor has enough information to find a clear and safe diagnosis and treatment, we will get to work!

What are the different treatments for being a single mother with a donor?

As we have already mentioned, there are different treatments that are chosen depending on the patient’s profile. We explain them below so that you have an overview of how they work, although the doctor will always explain the chosen treatment in detail.

Becoming a single mother by artificial insemination

This is the simplest and least invasive of all. It consists of introducing donor sperm into the uterus with a fine cannula. This process is of low complexity and respects the natural environment of the gametes. This type of insemination is indicated when the fallopian tubes are permeable and is performed when the woman has ovulated.

In vitro fertilization

This is a fertilization that is performed outside the body, in a laboratory dish, and 3-5 days later the embryos are transferred to the woman’s uterus. This treatment is usually used when other less expensive and less complex treatments have failed or it can also be performed directly, depending on the woman’s age and the functionality of her fallopian tubes.

Becoming a single mother through egg donation

The eggs and sperm used in single mother egg donation come from anonymous donors. Both donors, the sperm donor and the oocyte donor, undergo an exhaustive study to verify genetic suitability, as well as to look for similarities in genetic characteristics and to respect blood compatibility. The egg and sperm are fertilized in vitro, and will follow the same guidelines as this treatment.
