Unexplained Infertility

Artificial Insemination can be used as an alternative to IVF treatment to achieve pregnancy

IVF treatment   is now a household name and home insemination is not heard of or understood by many as a option to help with pregnancy if you have been struggling with infertility.

A cheaper and easier alternative to IVF is Artificial Insemination which can be performed in the comfort of your own home using devices which imitate the penis to insert sperm into the vagina.

Artificial Insemination should be attempted first before you spend loads of money on IVF treatments, especially if you fall into the category below.

Artificial Insemination at home can help in situations like:

  • Problems with the cervical mucus - there may not be enough mucus to allow sperm to move easily, or it may be too thick and sticky. Sometimes, the female partner's cervical mucus is not compatible with the male partner's sperm
  • Women with mild endometriosis (a condition in which the lining of the uterus can become attached to organs such as the fallopian tubes preventing the passage of eggs)
  • Anatomical problems with the cervix, which prevents sperm finding the egg
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Retrograde ejaculation (the entry of semen into the bladder instead of going out through the Urethra during ejaculation)
  • Low sperm count or motility issues
  • Abnormalities of the penis, such as severe hypospadias. This is when the ejaculate appears at the base of the penis instead of the tip. Occasionally, injury to the penis can also prevent normal penetration and ejaculation
  • Impotence that makes sexual intercourse impossible


The average cost in the UK for an IVF cycle is £5000
