For many women and couples, their first step toward parenthood with donor sperm is performing a home insemination. Some people find this to be a more comfortable and affordable method of conception compared to starting off in a clinical environment. It involves using a plastic, needle-less syringe to inject the donor sperm into the vagina. The sperm cells can then travel naturally into the uterus and hopefully progress further on to fertilize the egg. It can also save you additional medical costs associated with fertility treatments done by a clinician. If you need guidance or have questions about choosing a donor , we encourage you to contact one of our friendly Client Services Coordinators.
