I'm 21 and am interested in Donor Insemination

I'm 21 and have recently enquired about Donor Insemination. I have recently split with my husband due to the stress of him having a low sperm count and unsuccessfully trying for a baby. I still desperately want a baby, as I have a four year old son and am looking to extend my family before starting university next year. Am I too young? Will I be rejected?
