Psychological Issues Related to Alternative Insemination


Journal Article

This article explores reasons for psychologists to be interested in the effects of alternative insemination (AI) on individual women and couples. Of particular concern is the psychological effect of AI on the women who choose this means of conception. Research and public policy issues and potential counseling issues with which psychologists need to be familiar are reviewed. It is argued that psychologists, particularly those who are interested in the mental health of women, should not relegate these research and policy issues to the medical realm.
