Dear Mishka

Donor insemination is a simple process involving the use of a sperm donor and injection of the sperm specimen into the uterus at the time of ovulation. The cost is usually between 1000 – 2000 rands depending on whether ovulation induction is necessary or not. The sperm donor may be selected from one of the registered sperm banks such as Cryobank South Africa.
