Results for: Artificial insemination

What is artificial insemination at home? What are the differences between artificial insemination at home and artificial insemination in a fertility clinic?

As a result of a number of television programmes, as well as articles in newspapers and online, it has now become public knowledge that what we commonly know as artificial insemination at home is becoming an increasingly common practice.

The term could well be labelled incorrect or even deceptive if we take into account that insemination at home could never be on an equal footing to the artificial insemination carried out in a health clinic that has the necessary authorisation to carry out assisted reproduction techniques. The differences between the two are significant.

Differences between Artificial Insemination and In Vitro Fertilisation

Artificial insemination is a simple technique carried out on couples with specific fertility problems.

The ideal candidate would be a young woman with permeable fallopian tubes, less than 3 years of sterility and a male partner with normal semen.
