Embryo adoption. During the embryo donation procedure, patients can decide to “adopt” the embryos of other couples who have been through IVF treatment. It enables the recipient mother to experience the gestation, birth and breastfeeding of the future baby for herself. Click here to read more about embryo adoption.
Homologous Intrauterine Insemination (IUI-H) is a procedure widely used for treating several reproductive disorders. It must not be confused with In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), since the insemination intends that fertilisation is obtained in a natural way within the fallopian tubes, where it is usually produced. It does not force the patient to rest or to suspend daily activities. Click here to read more about homologous intrauterine insemination.
Intrauterine insemination of donor. This procedure is similar to the above mentioned one, but with the difference that it uses the sperm of an anonymous donor. This sperm is previously stored and prepared in Instituto Bernabeu's sperm bank according to the guidelines of Assisted Reproduction Law.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Microinjection (ICSI). Thanks to this technique, 95% of men who have serious fertility problems will be able to have their own child. By means of this procedure, only one spermatozoid is placed inside the oocyte to achieve fertilisation. Click here to read more about intracytoplasmic sperm microinjection (ICSI).
Seminal Storage.This consists of freezing the sperm in liquid nitrogen, where it is stored at -196º, maintaining its fertility capacity over a period of many years. Click here to read more about seminal storage.
