Home insemination is a form of artificial insemination performed within the comfort of your own home. Insemination at home often uses a home insemination kit, whereby the sperm is collected by the donor in a specimen container and then the recipient inserts the sperm using a syringe into the vagina, close to the cervix. Home insemination is increasingly used by single women and lesbian couples to conceive using donor sperm. It is also helpful for heterosexual couples wanting to increase their conception chances.
Insemination at home has many advantages over undertaking insemination within a clinic environment, these include:
- Relaxed environment
- Use of fresh sperm
- Involvement of partner
- High pregnancy success rate
- Lower costs involved
We do recommend that artificial insemination is performed at a HFEA regulated fertility clinic, whereby they will undertake all the necessary health screening and infection testing on the donor. However if you are looking to enter into a co-parenting arrangement or donor with who you have got to know well over a period of time, you may choose to consider home insemination, after completion of health screening tests and legal advice. These home insemination kits are also useful for heterosexual couples who may be experiencing fertility problems and wish to enhance their chances of conception.
It is important to understand that home insemination does carry risks of infection and that advice should be sought by a medical professional regarding infection screening prior to any inseminations.
Single women or couples who are not married, who undertake home insemination using a known donor, need to be aware that the donor will be viewed as the legal father in the eyes of the law. It is therefore recommended that single women using a known donor who do not wish for the donor to be involved in the child’s upbringing receive fertility treatment from a regulated fertility clinic.
