What is Home Insemination?
Home insemination is a method of attempting to conceive in the privacy of your own home using a needleless syringe to place the sperm on and near the cervix.
At InSEM, the home insemination process involves the use of sperm that is either fresh (from a partner) or frozen (from a partner or a donor) which is specially prepared in our laboratory to maximise quality and concentration of the sperm cells.
Preparing the sperm involves separating the sperm from the seminal fluid and isolating the best sperm in terms of their shape and ability to swim.
At-home insemination is a popular alternative to other fertility treatment options because is affordable and allows you to do the insemination in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
For many people, being at home in familiar surroundings is key to being able to relax and feel in control. At InSEM, we offer you the option to do the insemination procedure at home with our InSEM Kit.
Many couples and individuals choose to make this a starting point in their fertility journey, and many do find success.
For those who want to start their journey to parenting in the comfort of their own home, artificial insemination at home is a great alternative.

Is Home Insemination right for you?
Before a decision is made about whether or not home insemination is right for you, your specialised team of nurses and doctors will review your medical history and perform standard testing prior to treatment. This involves routine prenatal testing (blood check-up) and if you have a partner, a semen assessment to check the sperm.
Whether you have a partner or are single, at InSEM we are here to help. We will work with you and your goals to grow your family. Our expert team will provide you with all the support you need and guide you every step of the way.
