  1. Insemination

    Insemination is the deliberate introduction of sperm into a female animal or plant for the purpose of impregnating or fertilizing the female for reproduction. The sperm is introduced into the uterus of a mammal or the oviduct of an oviparous animal. In humans, insemination normally takes place during, and as the result of, sexual intercourse between a male and a female, when semen contains sperm is introduced by the male into the female's reproductive tract by ejaculation, but insemination can take place in ways not involving sexual intercourse. Compared to natural insemination, artificial insemination is more expensive and more invasive. Each form of insemination has legal, moral and interpersonal implications. Whether insemination takes place naturally or by artificial means, however, the pregnancy and the progress of it will be the same. In plants, the process of insemination is referred to as pollination and the male gamete is referred to as pollen.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

  1. Insemination
