9 steps to artificial insemination through sperm donation

As numerous and different as the reasons for artificial insemination can be. As numerous are the possibilities that can be used to realise the wish for a child. One basis for this is sperm donation. Especially if the wish to have a child has remained unfulfilled for a long time and the emotional strain is great, perhaps one or two sensible tips will help you to approach the topic of artificial insemination through sperm donation in a structured way. If you have taken a look at the 9 steps of sperm donation, you may have found the right path for you. Perhaps you have simply become acquainted with other possibilities for realising your desire to have a child that you were not aware of before.

Dear men! Please deal with the challenges of women! In the course of research, Partner4Baby was able to establish that only few men have more detailed knowledge about women-specific issues! Knowledge about the menstrual cycle, for example, is very low. Knowledge means understanding, understanding means understanding and mutual understanding is an essential prerequisite for the success of realising your desire to have a child. Remember, this issue can only succeed together!

You are not alone!

First of all, you should be aware that you are not alone with an unfulfilled desire to have children. Quite the opposite. A survey by the DELTA Institute for Social and Ecological Research showed that one in ten people is affected by unintentional childlessness. The number of single women and single men who have an unfulfilled desire to have children is steadily increasing. In addition, there are homosexual couples who wish to have children. Taking the figures of the Federal Statistical Office together with the estimation of Partner4Baby, one can assume that in Germany alone there are about 10.5 million people with an unfulfilled desire to have children. So: You are not alone. Go for it!
