Couldn't find what you looking for?


There are quite a few reasons why women or couples who have no fertility problems might attempt to get pregnant by methods other than sexual intercourse. Sexual dysfunction, vaginismus (when the penis cannot enter the vagina), or being part of a lesbian couple or a single mother by choice are a few. For all these groups, at home insemination might be the answer they have been looking for. What is a home insemination kit, and how is it used?

A home insemination kit is, much like the name already suggest, an "artificial" insemination kit that can be used in the comfort of your own home. Even if you might need assisted fertility techniques for whatever reason, that does not have to mean that you are immediately forced to use the services of expensive fertility clinics, and resort to methods like intrauterine insemination (IUI) or IVF. What do such home insemination kits include? Once you see the list, it pretty much speaks for itself. One well-known seller of a complete home insemination kit, The Total Conception, shares the content of their specialized kit. Included in the kit are the following items:

Ovulation predictor kits Pregnancy tests "Conception friendly" lubricant (presumably this means lubricant not containing spermicide) Semen collection cups Cervical caps Intra cervical insemination catheters Syringes Plastic speculum

That sounds pretty neat, and very complete, doesn't it? We agree that ovulation tests and pregnancy test are wonderful and essential items to include in home insemination kits. All the items speak for themselves, except perhaps intra cervical insemination catheters. Of course, many couples achieve a pregnancy by just inserting semen into the vagina. These catheters do give that semen a head start, though. Presumably instructions are also included in the kit. For those people who need insemination to get pregnant but who have no fertility problems, such kits are truly a very handy and even crucial tool.
