Thanks for choosing healthcare magic,
Turkey baster or a syringe technique is almost equal to intercourse and even a little less than that .This method is an alternative to induction method done in the hospital. But the difference is that in the hospital, the collected sperm is subjected to certain procedures to obtain only the sperm cells, which increases the chances of fertilisation and to remove the other fraction that may cause problem to the cervix
when loaded directly.
In intercourse only the sperm cells swim across the vagina to the cervix the remaining fraction remains away from cervix
So through turkeybaster you collect the full sperm and the fraction that cause problem to cervix can’t be separated, which is a drawback.
Sperm collection in condoms that have spermicidal actions may kill the sperm, which wastes all the efforts you take to implement this technique
And moreover it is a sterile technique when done in a hospital. when conducted at home, you are more prone to infections. Still some medical personnel may recommend this ,but with a proper guidance .So it is up to you to decide the benefits.
In your case, I suggest you to meet a doctor, because already it has been 9 years without kids and moreover your age is also more. so wasting more time with these things without ruling out the cause is not advisable in your case. you need to undergo minimum tests to find the cause so talk to the doctor about the finances and insurance and take steps accordingly.
