What are the advantages and disadvantages of artificial insemination in humans?
For couples who suffer from infertility issues, artificial insemination is usually the most successful choice for them to have a kid. Using artificial insemination opens up the doors to parenthood to couples who may not be able to have a child otherwise, due to male or female infertility issues.
In some cases, the male partner in a relationship may have had a past vasectomy, and rather than undergoing a reversal, the couple can choose artificial insemination using donor sperm to still get the child they desire.
For same sex couples, having a child is an issue. However, artificial insemination allows the doors to parenthood to open for them as well. A woman in a same sex relationship can be inseminated with donor sperm, or men in a same sex relationship can seek out a surrogate to carry a child, using their own sperm or donor sperm.
Single women without a partner may desire a pregnancy, and for them, artificial insemination offers the advantage of being able to have a child, using donor sperm. It's also not uncommon for women to have their own partner's sperm frozen in the event that their partner is deceased, and be able to use that later on, to conceive a child of their own.
When using donor sperm for artificial insemination, the sperm is tested and screened prior to being inseminated, and doing this reduces the issue of passing on genetic disorders to the unborn baby.
Single men can also take advantage of artificial insemination, by using a surrogate and having their own sperm inseminated into the mother
i hope this helped ^^

it depends on what you are talking about on doing it to. an animal or person? Artificial Insemination is when you inject semen into the female reproductive tract. Most a…ll animals are artificially inseminated differently. In many animals, you must manipulate the cervix or imitate natural breeding habits.
When someone manually retrieves the semen from the male and injects it into the female. Artificial meaning the male and female could be a million miles apart and still get the… job done. Basically, the doctors will take a sample of a man's sperm and place it inside a woman's uterus, so that the woman can get pregnant without a partner or if she and her partner have difficulty conceiving, then she can get someone else's semen to make a baby for her.
Artificial intelligence would not need any sleep. This would be an advantage because it would not be interrupted from its tasks for sleep, as well as other issues that plague …biological minds like restroom breaks and eating. Unemotional consideration of problems. While an artificial mind could theoretically have emotions, it would be better for performance if it were programmed for unemotional reasoning. When people make decisions, sometimes those decisions are based on emotion rather than logic. This is not always the best way to make decisions. Easier copying. Once an artificial mind is trained in a task, that mind can then be copied very easily, compared to the training of multiple people for the same task. There are some disadvantages to the artificial mind as well ... Limited sensory input. Compared to a biological mind, an artificial mind is only capable of taking in a small amount of information. This is because of the need for individual input devices. The most important input that we humans take in is the condition of our bodies. Because we feel what is going on with our own bodies, we can maintain them much more efficiently than an artificial mind. At this point, it is unclear whether that would be possible with a computer system. Which leads to another disadvantage ... The inability to heal. Biological systems can heal with time and treatment. For minor conditions, most biological systems can continue normally with only a small drop in performance. Most computer systems, on the other hand, often need to be shut down for maintenence. These are only some basic advantages and disadvantages without getting too technical. I am sure that other answers will vary greatly from mine, but I take an unusual approach to my research.
pro's:simple process. no sex has to be included. can be did in your own home. not painful. con's:. have to find a donor/one without dieases. sperm vials are pricey
They may cause mutations Artifical selection is the process of interntional, or unentitional modeifcation of a species through human actions which encourage the breeding of c…ertain traits over others. Some disadvantages of artificial selection is that it is inhumane, can cause mutations or produce new problems. An example of the inhumane process is the new way of breeding chickens. These chickens are produced without fethers. Critics say the feather-free chickens will suffer more than normal birds. Males might be unable to mate, because they cannot flap their wings, and "naked" chickens of both sexes are more susceptible to parasites, mosquito attacks and sunburn.
Advantage - It's artificial and you can play with it, shape it, and have it do just about anything you can imagine.. Disadvantage - It's artificial, and it can play with yo…u, shape you, and have you do just about anything someone who programmed it can imagine.

I have been on an artificial limb since having an aka amputation in September 1977. The most advantageous explanation I can give is the freedom to move about, not crutched, no…t hindered, but fluid movement, one cannot grasp without the medical marvels. The disadvantages? I have felt many over my lifetime, however, with the technology in place, to place the artificial limb movement in the hands or memory data, of a microchip, is forever the dreaded stairs of America, not to mention the uneven terrains, and snow and ice play a huge part in justifying the rights and wrongs of us, prosthethesis wearers. In essence, I am a huge fan of the limb, and could not exist in this world, as it is today, without this device. Thanks, Gary Anderson, Kansas resident.
Advantages: - make use of semen from deceased sires or sires that live a much longer distance away from the farm - semen can be used on tens of thousands of females a year ins…tead of the actual bull being only able to cover ~30 females in a breeding season. - less cost compared to keeping one or more herd bulls in terms of feeding, housing and labour expenses - job is less dangerous because there is not a potentially dangerous bull to handle after every breeding season - can use more than one breeding sire on your herd (for instance, you can use one sire per female) - you are to make use of superior genetics that cannot be found at a local bull sale Disadvantages: - there is only a 60 to 70% conception rate for AI than with using a fertile herd bull - still have to use a bull as "clean-up" to cover the females that were missed or didn't catch - if you don't want to use a clean-up male you may have to breed those that didn't catch a second or third time before they concieve. - have to have adequate knowledge of heat periods of female stock and know what to look for to see if any stock are in heat and then judge the time to AI them (for cows, when a female is observed to have heat behaviour, the rule of thumb is to AI 12 hours later) - cost for keeping semen straws frozen in a container of nitrous oxide (dry ice), having storage to keep AI equipment, handling facilities for breeding, etc. - may be added stress involved when females have to be restrained - AI isn't a job that can be learned by trail and error, it has to be taught first by a trained professional (an AI technician) before it can be carried out in the field. - you can't be afraid to get dirty because it involves sticking your whole arm up a cow's anus - semen has to be stored properly otherwise it will become no longer viable; improper handling will also render it inviable.
advantages; -readily available -no need for immunosuppressent drugs (stops heart from beingrejected) -are kept alive longer waiting for a heart donor -prolong life if a transp…lant is no longer an option -there is no past health history, brand new. disadvantages; -the electric motor can break down -major surgery is still needed -possible infections -need to take blood thinner drugs -have some complications such as stroke or bleeding -they are large so some people may not be able to have them
One advantage is that the person getting the heart gets a chance to live a bit longer. the person doesnt need to match a donor Already available No past health history so t…he heart is brand new A disadvantage is that it takes a lot of time and money to make.
