artificial insemintion

I am considering artificial insemination, using donor sperm. A few questions, can one do this independently in SA? I mean go to a sperm bank without going through a gynae? Do we even have sperm banks. Does anyone recomend doing it DIY turkey baster method?

You cannot go to a sperm bank on your own. You have to go via a gynaecologist. The turkey baste method is far less reliable than the medical route.
