Artificial Insemination (AI) in Mexico

The objective of Artificial Insemination (AI) is to respect as much as possible the natural environment of the gametes, thus promoting fertilization.

This technique consists of placing a semen sample, previously prepared in the laboratory, inside the woman's uterus in order to increase the potential of the spermatozoa and the chances of fertilisation of the ovum.

Artificial insemination is performed in consultation, without sedation and without the need to go through the operating room. After the placement of a speculum, the semen sample is introduced through a cannula into the uterus.

After the process, the patient rests for a few minutes in the consultation, gets dressed and is given the date to perform the pregnancy test and will be scheduled if necessary, the medication to be taken from that time.

During these 15 days, it is recommended to live a normal life, avoiding sport or any other high intensity activity, but without forgetting to do the usual routines.

Patient stories and testimonials

Read the great reviews from patients who have been fortunate enough to have Dr. Alejandro Castillo as their fertility specialist.

Hello, my name is Cris, and I am from the United States. I wanted to make this video to let everybody know that I am very happy and satisfied with Dr. Alejandro Castillo.

He is a very caring, patient, and professional doctor. Even though the journey is far for me to travel to Mexico City to see him, I am very glad that I was able to find him, and he has been able to treat me.

So, whatever your fertility journey is, I definitely recommend Dr. Alejandro. He is so caring and professional. He doesn't hesitate to go out of his way to help you feel calm regarding the procedures or whatever situation you are in.

Also, he is extremely accessible. He gave me his WhatsApp number, and any question that I had, I would reach out to him, and he would respond to me within minutes. This is definitely something that I don't see here in the United States. With Dr. Alejandro, this has been the way that we communicate.

Furthermore, his team is wonderful. The nurses are so caring and patient. The overall experience of being his patient has been phenomenal. I highly recommend him to any friend or family member who is considering IVF or anything related to infertility.

Dr. Alejandro is definitely the person you would want to see. This recommendation comes from someone who travels from the United States. I know there are doctors here that I could see, but my decision to travel to Mexico City has been the best decision I have made.

I just wanted to take this time to show my appreciation for Dr. Alejandro, and if I can inform others about how my journey has been, that is really the purpose of making this video. Have a wonderful day.

Cristina Texas, United States

Where are the family that decided to go to Inmater to have our kids and here it is. We had the experience with Dr. Castillo. We got the information, the friendship, the good values that I can only feel comfortable with.

And right now, we are so happy and blessed to have our son. We just want to say, don't be hesitant. Don't be scared. It's a good choice and wise decision. It's always worth it.

We had a great experience because the doctor always had a very quick response for any question we had. He was always very open to questions and answers in a quickly manner. He was very attentive to all of our questions. And also he was very spot on, very positive.

And he has become a friend too. Yes. And all the crew that works here.

So if you guys are thinking about it, it's totally worth it. You guys should do it.

Brigitte and Juan Manuel Texas, United States

We were trying to conceive for six years with no success. We tried so many different things here in the United States, but the cost of IVF especially the cost of donor eggs which we found out we would need was completely inaccessible.

So I started doing a ton of research from places all over the world and I finally came across Inmater in Mexico City.

They were very very responsive and very quickly after I contacted them we had a Zoom meeting with Dr. Castillo. He just right off the bat made us feel really comfortable, we felt very confident in his expertise and he really seemed to care about us.

We then decided to follow through and make plans to travel to Mexico City. After six years of trying, just really weren't sure what to expect, but it worked on the very first attempt.

We are expecting twin girls, we are so excited and couldn't be happier. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts, this means the world to us.

Amy and Nathaniel Seattle, United States

Hello. Hola. My name is Amanda. I am a patient of Dr. Castillo. I just wanted to come on here and share my brief experience.

I found Dr. Castillo and the Inmater Clinic. And I have not regretted not one choice. I am very fortunate to say that Dr. Castillo has taken care of me like his own daughter. Like a friend.

I began my IVF process and journey in Mexico City under the care of Dr. Castillo in March, and we were very successful with retrieving five eggs and blessed to say that two out of the five eggs moved on to the stage that we needed them to.

I surely hope that you consider Dr. Castillo for your future fertility needs, because not only did he treat me well, with great respect and just, care, his entire staff did. They were above my expectations, and nature was on our side and God was on our side.

And Dr. Castillo, for sure, was on our side.

Amanda Louisiana, United States

Hi, I'm Sarah. I live in Canada, and I'm a patient of Dr. Alejandro Castillo Pelaez, and I'm currently six weeks pregnant.

I went through fertility treatments here in my own country for two and a half years unsuccessfully.

And while I could go on at length about the problems I encountered, basically at the end of it, I had no hope left in my own country. And so I was looking elsewhere.

I am very fortunate that I found Dr. Alejandro. Within two and a half months of first contacting him, I had tested positive pregnant.

The care I received from Dr. Alejandro was unlike anything I had experienced here. He actually cares about his patients and works with them and wants them to be successful and is using very successful techniques.

He was always very responsive. Like here I was used to it being weeks, two months before I could get a hold of my doctor. Whereas Dr. Alejandro, I can contact him when I had problems sourcing medication here. He contacted me back within minutes.

I am so grateful for the care I received. And thank you, Dr. Alejandro.

Sarah Alberta, Canada

Hello, my name is Sarah. I'm from Canada and I would like to recommend Dr. Alejandro from Inmater Clinic here in Mexico City.

I worked with a fertility clinic for two and a half years in Canada, and it would take weeks or even months to get a hold of my doctor, whereas Alejandro was always available. He would answer quickly.

I never expected to find such service. I'm really happy to be working with him. I had a frozen embryo transfer done two days ago with donor eggs and sperm.

I don't know yet what the outcome will be, but regardless, I will be back here and returning to Inmater clinic.

Sarah Alberta, Canada

We wanted to say a special thank to Dr Alejandro Castillo. When we started this journey, we were very apprehensive and I wanted to share this story with all you guys who are planning to have an IVF.

We were in the middle of the pandemic and I must say the professionalism and the help that the Inmater people provided to us was exceptional.

Despite the travel restrictions and all the questions that we both had, Dr Alejandro was very prompt, answered very quickly and was always available.

We thank him and for helping us reach our dream and again a big shout out from Tampa, Florida. Thank you very much Dr. Alejandro!

Widad and Hassan Florida, United States

I'm from New York and I decided to go to Mexico City because I've seen good reviews online. My doctor, Alejandro, his communication was superb like anything I needed, any comments I had or any thoughts or issues.

His response times are really, really, really good, which made me feel good because I didn't visit the facility first.

I already did it online, so I only visited when I actually was going for my full fertility procedure for freezing my eggs. His attentiveness, the explanation, just his overall energy really encouraged me throughout this process. Because you're taking, you know, all of this medication, you're going through all these thoughts in your head. So it's really hard to piece this together.

But he made it so much better for me. I thought the facility was great. I thought everything went very smoothly, and I'd go back again 100%.

Thank you so much, Doctor, and good luck.

Sheneque New York, United States

Hello, everybody. My name is Alejandro. And I'm Martha.

Well, we are making this video to share our experiences with Dr. Alejandro Castillo. To my namesake, because we were sharing this whole fertilization process with him and his entire team.

The truth is that it was a very enriching experience. We have been together for about six years and we have been trying to conceive and we could not, we had not been able to. Then we considered the possibility and contacted Inmater and the service was very fast.

Dr. Alejandro contacted us, we made a video call and because we live in Florida and the whole process was very, very fast. We traveled to Mexico to start the whole process and well.

Today we had our first ultrasound. I am 12 weeks along and we are very happy, very grateful to the doctor. He treated us very well, as if we were family. He has practically been in contact with us all this time.

Anything we can write him on WhatsApp and we know he will answer us. Very, very grateful and very happy we are.

Very respectful from the beginning, he is 100% recommendable.

The truth is that he treats you like a human from the very beginning and he's very professional, very knowledgeable and always giving options.

Martha and Alejandro Florida, United States

We are patients of Dr. Alejandro Castillo and the truth is he always been a great doctor. He takes us by the hand step by step and has never left us alone

Dr. Castillo is also a great human being, which is something very very important. He has become a friend, a companion an ally in all this process and we love him very much.

He has always given us that encouragement and that good vibe, which is something that only he can give us.

Lupita and Alejandro México

We would like to thank the clinic Inmater and all its team, especially Dr. Alejandro Castillo for his professionalism and human sense who have accompanied us who have accompanied us in the conception of our two little daughters. We had already been married for two years and we were unable to conceive.

We came to Inmater on the recommendation of a doctor. They explained to us the different procedures they had and we initially underwent an in vitro fertilization which resulted in my first baby who is now five years old.

Last year, we did the second process with Dr. Alejandro and the result was our second baby whose name is Celeste.

We give this testimony for anyone who is interested in the clinic so that they trust and believe in them.

We highly recommend the clinic and we are immensely grateful for all the support they gave us in the conception of our two girls. Thank you very much to Dr. Alejandro and to all his team!

What is Artificial Insemination?

Artificial insemination is a low-complexity assisted reproductive treatment. It consists of introducing a semen sample, either from the couple or from a donor, into the woman's uterus.

This procedure increases the chances of pregnancy with respect to sexual intercourse because the semen sample is previously treated in the laboratory and also stimulates the ovary to control the growth and maturation of the eggs.

Depositing the treated sample in the woman's uterus reduces the distance that the sperm must travel to the egg and the scheduling of insemination allows maximizing the chances of fertilization and pregnancy.

In what cases is it indicated?

Artificial insemination can be performed with a sample of sperm from the donor or the couple.

This treatment is recommended for:

  • Women with a good number of quality eggs and no male partner.
  • Women with alterations in ovulation.
  • Women with some alteration in the entrance of the uterus.
  • Heterosexual couples in which the man presents slight or moderate anomalies in the quality of the spermatozoa. In cases of poor seminal quality or absence of sperm, our medical team will recommend the best option to increase the chances of pregnancy.
  • Heterosexual couples in which the man is a carrier of a genetic disease. If this disease cannot be studied in embryos, our medical team will recommend the use of sperm from a donor.

Success rates in Mexico

Artificial insemination, being a treatment of low complexity, offers pregnancy rates lower than other assisted reproduction treatments, but higher than those of sexual intercourse.

You can check our success rates, audited by an accredited company and updated every year, here. The possibilities of pregnancy depend in each case on many factors - age, ovarian reserve, medical and reproductive history, etc.

First consultation

At the first consultation in a clinic, fertility specialists perform a personalized evaluation of each patient to determine the most appropriate assisted reproductive treatment. This session includes a complete gynecological study, as well as an analysis of the sperm in the case of heterosexual couples.

Ovarian stimulation

With the beginning of the treatment, which is marked by the woman's menstrual cycle, ovarian stimulation begins, which has an estimated duration of 10-12 days. This stimulation increases the chances of success, since the woman naturally produces only one egg in each menstrual cycle, while in this way ensures the development of one or two.

The specialist carries out an exhaustive monitoring of the stimulation by means of ultrasounds (3 or 4) and blood tests. Once the follicles have reached the appropriate number and size, a dose of hCG hormone must be administered to induce ovulation and, 36 hours later, artificial insemination is programmed.

Semen Sample Preparation

On the day of insemination, in the Andrology laboratoryc, the sperm sample is prepared to optimize its quality and thus increase the chances of fertilization.

If the couple's semen is used, the man must deliver the sample to the laboratory about 2 hours before treatment. This preparation allows andrologists to select and concentrate the sperm with the best mobility, discarding those that are dead, immobile or that move slowly.

Pregnancy test

After this process, and after resting for a few minutes, the specialists inform you of the optimal date for the blood pregnancy test, which is usually 14-15 days after insemination. Fertility specialists recommend that you live a normal life during this waiting period, avoiding only high-intensity activities.

If the result is positive, 20 days later a control ultrasound is performed in which the embryonic sac is confirmed. Once you are discharged, you can continue to monitor your pregnancy with your usual gynecologist.
