Insemination / About the insemination

The actual insemination

Being inseminated should be a pleasant and caring experience, and this is something that should not be rushed. We set aside an hour for the consultation, insemination and subsequent rest.

An entirely different and positive experience of conception

We feel it is important that the insemination process takes place in calm surrounding, and that you feel ready to face the world again before heading out into the busy city. We recommend that you take plenty of time to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet for about 30 minutes after insemination. We try to create cosy surroundings and a nice ambiance with candles and music if you wish. It is OK if you do not have the time or you do not wish to rest afterwards. You could well get pregnant anyway. The most important thing is that you have a positive experience and that you feel comfortable.

The examination couch is organically shaped and extra wide, so you will be lying comfortably. There is room for a partner, if you would like to rest together after insemination.

We use supporting wedges for your feet and not the usual stirrups that are normally found on examination couches. Not having your legs ”dangling” during insemination, but having your feet free and placed firmly on the bed may give you more of a sense of autonomy. So, how the insemination takes place is entirely up to you.

The donor sperm is prepared

Before your arrival, the donor sperm is washed in order to remove male hormones, bacteria, dead sperm cells, etc. This washing process is important so that only the best and fastest sperm cells are introduced into the uterus.

Your insemination experience will be safe and relaxing, and we will explain in detail what is going to happen.

The actual insemination only takes a moment. Sperm is introduced into your uterus via a thin catheter when you are ovulating.

As you will see, we have developed a particularly gentle insemination technique which is particularly suitable for women who normally find gynaecological examinations difficult.
