Some infertility solutions do not require medical intervention. Self-Insemination is simple in practice and can be done at home with a partner or even by yourself.
DIY (do-it-yourself) or self-insemination, is a method in which the woman (or her partner) inserts semen into the vagina herself, without medical intervention. This is a useful technique for couples with sexual dysfunction (eg inability to consummate the marriage because of impotence or vaginismus); when the husband cannot perform sexual intercourse for any reason on the fertile days; or for single women or lesbians.
It's surprisingly easy to learn to do, but because most women know so little about their own anatomy, most are very uncomfortable even attempting to try it. This guide should help you with the basics, but the only way to learn is by doing it.
You can also ask your doctor for help and she may be able to guide you in the beginning. Some couples may get turned off by the idea, because it is so 'clinical', with a little bit of imagination, and your husband's cooperation, you can make it fun! test
So what do you need? Very little, really.
The most important ingredient is a freshly ejaculated semen sample!
The timing of the insemination is very important, and you need to do it during your "fertile days". When you are using the Malpani Baby Kit for doing your self-insemination, it's very helpful to know what your peak fertile days are , so you can do the inseminations on those days to maximise your chances of getting pregnant quickly.You can use the Free Malpani Clinic Online Fertility Calculator to determine your peak fertility dates.
The Calculator calculates your most fertile days based on the fact that:

Ask your husband to ejaculate in a clean sterile plastic container. Make sure this is wide-mouthed, so it's easier for him to aim accurately ' you don't want any of it to spill out! Sometimes getting a sample can be difficult, and you may need to seduce your husband! Using a vibrator, or liquid paraffin as a lubricant can help enormously.
After the semen sample has liquefied (this takes about 30 minutes), you are now ready to perform the procedure. Ask your husband to put on disposable gloves and then suck up the semen sample into the sterile disposable plastic Pasteur pipette by squeezing on the bulb of the Pipette. We provide this medical grade pipette ( the same one we use in our IVF lab) in our self insemination kit. Some people use syringes, but this is not ideal.

You should try to inseminate about 3 times a month during your fertile period. You can inseminate daily if you like. The more inseminations you do in a cycle, the better your chances.
Here are some queries patients often ask.
" We are planning for baby due to painful sex. We are trying home insemination. Through Youtube , we tried with a syringe last time . What we observed is almost all the liquid injected into vagina was coming out along with the syringe when it is pulled out. While surfing we came across your video and we are planning to buy your DIY kit.
Have a few queries could you please provide your inputs.
1. With your kit ,when we insert the speculum ,won't it cause burning or pain inside vagina ? In that case can we use lubricant provided in your kit to apply on speculum or please suggest how to loosen vagina. I don't get lubrication properly.
You don't need to use the speculum if you don't want to. It's easy to insert the soft plastic pasteur pipette deep into your vagina . This will automatically deposit the semen near the cervix.
2. Through the pipette should we drop semen near the cervical opening or should insert pippet slightly to cervix opening.
Near the cervix is fine. Sperm can swim and will find their way to the cervical mucus, so please don't worry about this
3. With my previous experience injecting through a syringe I noticed almost all liquid came out of vagina, what should we do to make semen stay inside vagina.
Lie down with a pillow under your hips for a few minutes after the insemination
Leakage is normal . This happens after sexual intercourse as well, because the vagina is a closed blind tunnel/sheath
4.After sperm ejaculation how long the sperm should be kept outside, I mean should we wait before inserting into vagina after semen collection.
15 min is enough for it to liquefy
5. Is it necessary to get naturally lubricated inside vagina and get orgasm during this process ?
No, there is no relationship between sexual arousal, orgasm and fertility
5. Can the kit be delivered to my hometown which is small taluk in Karnataka.
Please have realistic expectations of the chances of success. The chance of getting pregnant is about 10% per cycle - and if you are not pregnant in 6 months, you need to go to a doctor for additional assistance. You can assemble your own self-insemination kit and this should contain:
