Are you considering using donor sperm to have children and start a family? Simple assisted insemination could be an option for you. The choice between treatment in a fertility clinic or self-treatment is highly individual and may involve both medical and emotional considerations. In this blog post, we will guide you through what Simple assisted insemination is and what is needed to go ahead with this kind of treatment.
If you are free of fertility issues, simple assisted insemination is an alternative to treatment in a clinic.
It is important that you feel comfortable, relaxed, and free of stress during the conception. Some women need to be treated in a fertility clinic. For others this may not be necessary.
For women free of fertility issues, simple assisted insemination is an alternative to fertility treatment in a clinic. By choosing this kind of insemination, you reduce both the stress and the cost associated with going to a clinic for the procedure.
Simple assisted insemination is for anyone who prefers to perform the insemination in a more comfortable environment than at a clinic. The process requires that you involve an authorized healthcare professional* to assist the insemination. You must provide contact information for the healthcare professional when ordering the donor sperm.
To increase traceability and thus manage the number of pregnancies from each donor, Danish legislation requires that an approved tissue centre, a fertility clinic, a hospital clinic, or a licensed healthcare professional* in your country is the recipient of the distribution. Therefore, the sperm bank asks for a shipping authorization form, which has been signed by one of the above stated institutions/persons.
*) For instance, a certified doctor, a nurse or a midwife. If you are a licensed healthcare professional yourself, you can also fill out the form – acknowledging that you do so in the act of your profession with the responsibilities it entails.
You can use both ICI and IUI units. If you order ICI units, we recommend you buy two units/2ml. An insemination remedy kit and step-by-step instructions on how to perform the insemination are included.
We ship the frozen donor sperm in a dry shipper with nitrogen. The tank with the sperm units will maintain a proper temperature for minimum 5 days from the date shipped. We offer tanks with the durability of both 5 days, 10 days, and 14 days.
Included in the tank you will find a thorough guide of how to handle the sperm unit and how to perform the insemination.
We recommend that you consult with your physician or a healthcare professional on matters relating to treatment methods, including simple assisted insemination, prior to the decision and during the treatment period. A healthcare professional can also assist you in optimising your chances of pregnancy by doing various testing on your fertility, hormones, and menstrual cycle.
If you would like to go ahead with simple assisted insemination the first step is to choose a donor. The great majority of our donors have become donors because they want to help others and they have given it a lot of thought. Many of them are also blood donors.
A large percentage of the donors are Danish students of higher education. Some have already made a career. Most of the donors are dedicated to sports, arts, or music. Some of them are engaged in it on a professional level. A common feature is that they are all skilled in their field and dedicated to what they do.
