Pregnant in time for next year’s Mother’s Day

If you are yearning for a child and you know you need to use a sperm donor to become pregnant then start the process now. Some people are lucky and can find a match straight away, the perfect donor who will get you pregnant first time. This sounds farfetched but it does happened a lot more than you may think.

Those are however the lucky ones.

For most women finding a good sperm donor and becoming pregnant can take up to a year. Once you find your sperm donor you need to agree your method of insemination. If you choose home insemination you need to ensure your donor is fully tested for STI's and fertility. If you select artificial insemination at a clinic then that process is time consuming due to testing regulations, freezing and thawing of the sperm, consultation appointments and the artificial insemination treatment itself.

All of this time is well worth the wait. Happy Mother's Day.
