Hello! My wife and I are finally going to try and have our baby, We are young women and generally pretty healthy. Money runs tight so we want to start with IUI before going to something more expensive (I hope we don’t need to). So our plan is to try and do the insemination here at home. Has someone done it this way? I know it´s better to do it in a clinic but we are tight on money I insist. I need some insight!12/25/2021 at 9:08 am
Hi Sarah, I was in your shoes a couple of years ago, we contacted a sperm bank and they sent us the sperm in a week. We thought it was kinda weird the container it came in and of course, it was a scam. We decided to try again with a different company, the sample was okay but it was difficult to make it work with my woman´s cycle and stuff, we tried 3 more cycles and there was no way. We ended up going to a fertility clinic and they explained the whole process and did a couple of tests and stuff we got pregnant on the first cycle at the clinic, I guess there was something we weren’t doing correctly or didn’t have the tools to do it. So.. I recommend you go directly to a clinic because we spent more money and time than we would have if we went to the clinic directly…01/04/2022 at 5:20 pm
At-home insemination has lower pregnancy rates as it’s done with sperm that can be compromised since the sample is collected, due to the possibility of mishandling or not properly caring for the sample. It must be noted that there has to be a synchronization between the sample arrival and the ovulation, specifically the ovulation phase, which is a key component to a successful pregnancy.
Fertility clinics ensure the tests needed to establish the possibility of a healthy pregnancy, a sterile environment with qualified professionals that know the procedure step by step and perform it the correct way. All of these aspects contribute to a higher pregnancy rate than the rate of at-home insemination.
I hope I have helped,
