  • This is what the kit contains...

    You can assemble your own self-insemination kit and this should contain:
    # Semen container (wide-mouthed plastic jar)
    # Lubricant (liquid paraffin) to help your husband, if needed
    # Disposable sterile plastic pasteur pipette or 10 ml plastic syringe (without needle)
    # Disposable paper/rubber gloves

    Alternatively, you can buy a Self Insemination Kit from us by ordering it online.

    # Cervical cap
    # Plastic speculum
    # Torch
    # Mirror

  • Ladies this is nothing new, my daughter have done this numerous times with the help of a sperm donor bank, not all of us are lucky enough to have fresh sperm at our disposals for creating a life.

  • I've heard of women using a turkey baster followed by standing on their head for a few minutes!! Not sure how they "collected" the sperm effectively or whether the self-insemination was successful, but I digress. LOL

  • I will start of with saying that i totally dont approve of this or think it is ok at all, but I knew a girl who's boyfriend didnt want a baby and she did, so she took the sperm from the condom and injected herself witha turkey baster to get pregnant, they ended up getting married but I could never do that

  • I don't know....maybe a reputable sperm bank and a fertility doctor would be the best way to do this. But what do I know? The kit? It just seems a little ....ewwwww.
