Home insemination is an easy procedure that can be done in the comfort of your own home. The donor sperm straws you select are shipped directly to you in a nitrogen tank container. An insemination kit, with a needle-less syringe, an adaptor and a step-by-step instruction document is included in the shipment.
When you receive the donor sperm, a home insemination kit with detailed instructions is included. To learn how to use the kit, watch this step-by-step video. Home insemination can be performed in the comfort of your own home, either alone or with the assistance of your partner.
You can order sperm from any of the sperm donors on our donor list. If a donor does not have ICI-ready sperm straws, IUI-ready straws are perfectly suitable for home insemination and the success rates are indistinguishable.
The recommended amount of sperm you should purchase for your home insemination is 2 x ICI or IUI MOT10 straws. ICI-ready sperm is typically used for home insemination, and IUI-ready sperm is usually used for clinic insemination, but both can absolutely be used in home insemination. If you want to learn more about the amount of sperm you should buy for home insemination, then follow the link to our blog post on the subject.
You can choose a higher MOT as a personal preference. MOT5 straws contain less motile sperm than is recommended for home insemination and are intended primarily for IVF use, as they are less effective for home insemination.
You can buy sperm for home insemination on our website. Simply find the donor you like, create an account, and order in time for your next ovulation. We always suggest talking to a doctor before ordering sperm for insemination, to make sure that you have the best chance of conceiving.
Home insemination is one of the most popular ways of artificial insemination and there is a lot more to uncover about it. We have made several blog post's focusing on the different stages of home insemination with donor sperm.
The cost depends on your choice of Sperm Donor Profile, type of MOT and where the sperm should be delivered to. For example, if you purchase the 2 straws of ICI MOT 10 (the recommended amount), the cost should be around $1,200, shipping included.
Qualifications and age requirements vary across each sperm bank. For instance, the Sperm Bank of California requires donors to have or be currently pursuing a college degree, while Seattle Sperm Bank requires donors to have access to four generations of family medical history.
No, if artificial insemination is performed by a physician, sperm donors do not have parental rights. Courts are hesitant to deny parental rights if the insemination takes place outside of the supervision of a licensed physician.
In the United States, most sperm donations are anonymous. By contrast, many developed nations require sperm donors to be identified, typically requiring new sperm (and egg) donors to put identifying information into a registry that is made available to a donor-conceived child once they reach the age of 18. Recently, advocates have pressed U.S. states to adopt these registries as well, and state legislatures have indicated openness to the idea. This study re-lies on a self-selected convenience sample to experimentally examine the economic implications of adopting a mandatory sperm donor identification regime in the U.S. Our results support the hypothesis that subjects in the treatment (non-anonymity) condition need to be paid significantly more, on average, to donate their sperm. When restricting our attention to only those subjects that would ever actually consider donating sperm, we find that individuals in the control condition are willing-to-accept an average of $$43 to donate, while individuals in the treatment group are willing-to-accept an aver-age of $74. These estimates suggest that it would cost roughly $31 per sperm donation, at least in our sample, to require donors to be identified. This price differential roughly corresponds to that of a major U.S. sperm bank that operates both an anonymous and identify release programs in terms of what they pay donors.
A semen analysis tests for sperm count, motility (ability to swim) and morphology (the size and shape of sperm). Health screening for medical conditions involves testing the donor for infectious diseases (such as HIV and Hepatitis) and taking their family medical history to identify any serious heritable diseases. Donors should also agree to their GP being contacted.
For patients seeking to use donated sperm, either from a known or unknown donor, there are many factors to consider, including the donation source and storage to protect all your future options for parenthood. These are some of the most frequently asked questions about the sperm donation process. For more information, please contact us.
The above commercial sperm cryobanks are licensed by the New York State Department of Health and the FDA, which is a Columbia University Fertility Center requirement for Donor Sperm samples. However, please feel free to consult with your provider if there is another reputable commercial cryobank that you prefer.
Please consult your provider or sperm bank regarding the type of vials(s) needed for your cycle type. It is advisable to order multiple vials for additional procedures and/or for potential sibling birth. The additional vials can be stored at the commercial cryobank and transported to Columbia Fertility as needed.
We recommend purchasing additional vials to maximize the possibility of using the same donor sperm in future cycles, if desired. The number of additional vials will depend on how many children you desire and the fertility treatment method used. The additional samples can be stored at the commercial sperm bank until needed.
Current research has not shown any negative long-term effects from using sperm that has been previously frozen. Sperm can be frozen indefinitely. Please consult your physician if you are interested in thawing and re-freezing donor sperm.
NOAA Fisheries and our partners are dedicated to conserving and rebuilding sperm whale populations. We use a variety of innovative techniques to study, protect, and rescue these endangered whales. We engage our partners as we develop regulations and management plans that encourage recovery, foster healthy fisheries, reduce the risk of entanglements, create whale-safe shipping practices, and reduce ocean noise.
Commercial whaling from 1800 to the 1980s greatly decreased sperm whale populations worldwide. The International Whaling Commission placed a moratorium on commercial whaling in 1986. The species is still recovering, and its numbers are likely increasing.
Because sperm whales spend most of their time in deep waters, their diet consists of species such as squid, sharks, skates, and fish that also occupy deep ocean waters. Sperm whales can consume about 3 to 3.5 percent of their body weight per day.
Female sperm whales reach sexual maturity around 9 years of age when they are roughly 29 feet long. At this point, growth slows and they produce a calf approximately once every five to seven years. After a 14 to 16-month gestation period, a single calf about 13 feet long is born. Although calves will eat solid food before one year of age, they continue to nurse for several years. Females reach their maximum length and are physically mature around 30 years old at which they measure up to 35 feet long.
Sperm whales can ingest marine debris, as do many marine animals. Debris in the deep scattering layer where sperm whales feed could be mistaken for prey and incidentally ingested, leading to possible injury or death.
The effects of climate and oceanographic change on sperm whales are uncertain, but both can potentially affect habitat and food availability. Whale migration, feeding, and breeding locations for sperm whales may be influenced by factors such as ocean currents and water temperature. Increases in global temperatures are expected to have profound impacts on arctic and subarctic ecosystems, and these impacts are projected to accelerate during this century. However, the feeding range of sperm whales is likely the greatest of any species on earth, and, consequently, sperm whales are expected to be more resilient to climate change than species with more restrictive habitat preferences.
The threat of contaminants and pollutants to sperm whales and their habitat is highly uncertain and further study is necessary to assess the effects of this threat. Little is known about the possible long-term and transgenerational effects of exposure to pollutants. Marine mammals are considered to be good indicators for concentrations of metal and pollutant accumulation in the environment due to their long lifespan and (in some cases) position near the top of marine food webs.
Our research projects have discovered new aspects of sperm whale biology, behavior, and ecology and helped us better understand the challenges that sperm whales face. This research is especially important in rebuilding endangered populations. Our work includes, but is not limited to:
The sperm whale has been listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act since 1970. This means that the sperm whale is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range. NOAA Fisheries is working to protect and recover this species.
NOAA Fisheries is working to minimize effects from human activities that are detrimental to the recovery of sperm whale populations in the U.S. and internationally. Together with our partners, we undertake numerous activities to support the goals of the sperm whale recovery plan. The ultimate goal is to delist the species.
NOAA Fisheries increases public awareness and support for marine mammal conservation through education, outreach, and public participation. We regularly share information with the public about the status of sperm whales, our research, and our efforts to promote their recovery. 041b061a72
