A total of 350 people who had purchased and used Mosie Kit for at-home insemination between October 2019 and July 2020 were studied to understand their perception of the safety and useability of the kit, as well as the resulting pregnancy rates. The study was conducted retrospectively by inviting all people who purchased a Mosie Kit from October 2019 to July 2020 to participate in an anonymous online survey. They reported 748 cycles. Ninety-nine (99%) percent of the users perceived the kit as safe to very safe to use, 97% indicated it was an easy process, and 96% found it easy to do. Participants gave the Mosie Kit a 4.4 star rating.
Participants were women, men, transgender, and non-binary individuals aged 20-50 years old (median age of 34 and average of 33.8) of which 78% were in heterosexual relationships, 18% were LGBTQ, and 4% were single. Forty-two (42.3%) percent indicated they had known fertility issues.
Of the people who responded to the survey, 84% were inseminated (5% both partners were inseminated in an LGBTQ relationship), 16% indicated only their partner was inseminated and 1% inseminated a surrogate. Most of the users (35.7%) had been trying to conceive for 6 months or less while 43.7% had been trying for 1 or more years.
There were a total of 1985 inseminations reported during 748 cycles with 36% occurring 24-48 hrs prior to ovulation, 39% within 24 hours of ovulation, 19% 24-48 hours post ovulation and 6% 48+ hours post. Most frequently, only one insemination was done per time point (75%, 82, 82% and 68% respectively). More inseminations occurred in the later cycles (Average: 2.4, 2.4, 2.5, 2.7, 3.1, 3.5 respectively. See infographic below).
Pregnancy resulted in 99 cases (28.3%) with 92% becoming pregnant within three cycles, 61% (n=60) becoming pregnant after just one cycle. This pregnancy rate is comparable or higher than that resulting from IUI and from traditional intercourse.
