HOME HELP: Internet sperm seekers

The Spanish Fertility Society (SFS) issued the warning as a trend of people splurging on online sperm from foreign countries and self-inseminating at home develops.

Websites selling the sperm are illegal in Spain as they are not regulated and violate the condition of anonymity, a spokesman said.

“It’s very risky and it does not guarantee pregnancy, because studies say home inseminations only work in one in 20 cases,” said the SFS chairman.
