 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: We have been married for 5 years and still have no children. All the medical tests seem clear. We have even tried artificial insemination on a couple of occasions but those too have failed. My problem is that now I am not able to ejaculate during intercourse, so on my friend's suggestion, we have been collecting the semen during masturbation and then injecting it in the vagina with the help of a syringe. Can you please help us?

Deepen (Mumbai, India)

A: Please see an infertility specialist who will guide you. You can approach your family doctor to get the name of such a specialist.

Dr. Asha Paranjpe

Q: I am in a same sex relationship and we are planning for me to get pregnant by a donor through artificial insemination. How long will the sperm live outside the donors body? How long do we have from the time he ejaculates until it must be inserted into me?

Angelina (Toronto, Canada)

A: A few hours. You can read more about DIY (do it yourself) insemination on our website at
