How many vials of sperm are needed for ICI (home insemination)?
At Cryos, we recommend you order two or more straws of MOT10 or higher for ICI treatment. ICI treatment is the simplest form of assisted reproduction and can be performed in your own home as home insemination or at a fertility clinic.
When ordering donor sperm for home insemination, we recommend adding a reservation for extra straws to make sure that you have enough sperm for the entire treatment.
