Artificial insemination offers many benefits for people opting for this method. Artificial insemination is not meant only for infertile couple, but also provides a way for a single woman to become pregnant and a single man to have a child through surrogacy. This procedure is becoming increasingly popular for lesbian and gay couples who want to start a family.
Both intracervical insemination and the intrauterine methods of artificial insemination have a high success rate. They are also less invasive than other procedures such as in-vitro fertilization. Artificial insemination is more affordable than any other fertility procedures and in some cases, insurance also helps cover the cost of the procedure.
Some women prefer using a donor from a sperm bank, especially when they want to be certain that the donor has no interest in the child’s life. The donors are anonymous and the sperm is screened to ensure that they are virile and healthy. They are usually given information about the donor before they receive the sperm. Some women prefer known donors who could be a close friend, or conduct interviews to find the right sperm donor.
At the same time artificial insemination is associated with some side effects like congenital abnormalities, impaired developments and retinoblastoma in the child. It is found that children conceived through artificial insemination were at a higher risk of birth defects such are cardiovascular and musculoskeletal defects. One of the cons of artificial insemination is emotional problems and stress. These emotional issues that couples undergo often result in serious consequences in a relationship. In case of artificial insemination, only a female partner can claim the biological association with the child, leaving the male partner to psychologically cope with the reality. This lack of involvement has a psychological impact.
