I am a single 25 year old woman who is interested in being artificially inseminated. I'm established and comfortable in my life where i would like to start a family and I'm 100% confident I am capable and ready for this next step in my life. I do have health insurance and money is not an issue. I also have a friend who would like to help me with this journey by donating his sperm. I wont go into details on what we have discussed and decided in the long run with our hopeful offspring but with all that said, I am seeking a Dr. who would assist in this process. How should I go about this and find a Dr. who will do the insemination without questioning my personal decision? Please advise. Thank you :)

We would love to help you with your request of insemination and to becoming pregnant! The process is actually quite straight forward for us. The first step begins with a consultation and then some basic screening tests that are required by the FDA and the State of California. They include typical pre-pregnancy labs such as testing for hepatitis, syphilis, etc... We would also need to make sure that your fallopian tubes are open with either a specialized ultrasound (saline sonogram) or an X-ray (hysterosalpingogram).

In terms of using your friend as a sperm donor, this is possible, but it would add complexity. He would need to have a full panel of screening labs and go through several other steps. I would love to speak to you about some of these details at our initial visit.

Best of luck!
