I suffer from vaginasmus and desperately want to start a family. Is there any possible treatment where I can be knocked out to allow the IUI process to work?

At Manchester Fertility we offer counselling to understand your situation and to support you through the journey. If you need donor sperm insemination then its implication would be also covered.

To overcome vaginismus, again counselling is a good place to start. Then through medical consultation, often with involvement of nurse support, your problem can be further explored. It is possible to have an insemination under sedation.
