Frequently Asked Questions

What is home insemination or ICI? 

Sometimes called the turkey baster method, the form of home insemination which Eive Kits utilises is actually Intracervical insemination (ICI) which involves putting sperm using a syringe into the vagina, mimicking intercourse. 


How is it different to IUI 

Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI) involves putting sperm directly into the uterus using a tube that goes through the cervix. The sperm has been specially washed. In this context washing doesn’t have anything to do with cleanliness, but “washed” means the semen has gone through a process of separating the sperm from the rest of the ejaculate.  IUI should only be undertaken at a medical clinic.  


Can you recommend how I find a donor? 

Eive Kits are not in a suitable position to help in this matter at this stage and we strongly recommend that you ensure that you have considered all health and legal risks of carrying out insemination methods outside of a licensed fertility clinics.  


Can I reuse the syringe and specimen cup for the sperm? 

No- reusing sterile products is not advised due to the high risk of possible infection.
