The options for artificial insemination are becoming more user-friendly with each passing year. For example, there is now the option for an artificial insemination to be done at home without a doctor present. There are kits for this procedure called an intravaginal insemination. This option is becoming more popular with women who, for one reason or another, find it difficult to make trips to the clinic where this procedure is usually done. The success rate is not the greatest, 10% to 30%, but the cost is not as high either.


The main reason for the low success rate can be reasoned to be the fact that the sperm is not injected any further than the vaginal cavity. The process of getting pregnant is made harder by this fact even though this procedure should be done when the woman is ovulating.


Another option is intracervical insemination. This procedure is more detailed; therefore, it cannot be done at home. With this process, the sperm sample is inserted further up into the cervix. This makes the trip shorter for the sperm to find the eggs in order for both to work their magic. The success rate with this procedure will be a bit higher than the first shown option due to the fact that the sperm has a better chance of finding an egg.


Again, the chances are increased when doing this procedure during an ovulation cycle. The cost of the intracervical procedure is going to be a bit more because a doctor has to do it and it is a bit more detailed, but again, the success rate is higher.


Intrauterine insemination is better still when it comes to success rates because the donor sperm is placed directly into the uterus. There is no “climbing the ladder,” so to speak. The donor sperm is placed directly where it needs to be in order to find the egg necessary for pregnancy. This is also going to cost a bit more than the previous two options because of the increased complexity of the procedure.


Depending on the clinic you use, you could see a success rate of up to 35% for this procedure. This option is the most popular one for women who have tried one or both of the others with no success. It is commonplace these days to start with one of the other options for pricing purposes. The ovulation cycle plays a big part in the success rates, so most women count on that more than the specific procedure itself.


Keep in mind that success rates depend heavily on the clinic used, the ovulation cycle, and the overall health of the woman trying to get pregnant. The procedure itself comes into play, of course, but that is only one piece of the puzzle. Making sure everything works in tandem with each other has more of an effect on the success rate than any factor individually does.


Staying healthy, choosing the right clinic, and performing a procedure during peak ovulation is the trifecta you are shooting for in order to get the highest chance of success.

    This was really interesting because I didn't know anything about CMV. I guess I'll be tested for that when I go in to make a donation and I hope I don't have it because I'd hate for someone to choose a CMV positive sperm donation just because it's cheaper. It seems to me that the sperm that tests positive for this virus shouldn't be offered as a choice.
