Most women turn to their beau and their bedrooms—or kitchen floors, if that’s what you’re into—when they’re ready to make a baby. But for women who face medical issues, same-s*x couples, or even single ladies who no longer want to wait for Prince Charming, there are other options.
#1. Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
With IUI—where sperm is matched with your egg inside your uterus—a woman can work with a partner, donor, or sperm bank. Each of those options come with their own set of variables: For example, you can choose a known donor or to go through a sperm bank; you can also get a fresh or frozen sample. An ob-gyn uses a catheter to introduce the sperm into your uterus (via your v**ina and cervix). “It’s simple, minimally uncomfortable, and similar to pap smear in terms of discomfort,” says Dweck. You may leave the office with mild cramps, but otherwise you’ll have zero recovery time. “I usually have patients lie with pelvis tilted for 10 minutes after the procedure,” says Dweck, “but then they are free to go about normal activities.”
The cost of IUI varies vastly between clinics, but you can expect to spend anywhere from $300 to $800 per cycle. Check with your insurance because some cover a few or even all cycles, says Dweck.
