Where to begin??
Thu, 10-28-2010 - 1:34pm

I am thinking of using a sperm bank/donor but inseminating at home. I live in Palm Beach County. Does anyone know of a place I can go to or even order online? How much does it cost on average? How does it work? How do I order?

thank you for your help,

Hi Rachel!

Daisy gave you some good info.

We do our IUI's at home, and use International Cryogenics. They do require the samples be shipped to a Dr.'s office. We did, however, find an RE that allows for at home insemination; and would even allow us to store the samples there and pick them up when we need them - if you're using an RE, you may check around for one that would do that. There are some risks to doing
