I was speaking to someone recently and when the topic of infertility came up, they announced: "I know a person who is infertile (don't we all?) and she had to go through artificial impregnation." Artificial insemination, yes, you can place semen in the body through artificial means. You can even remove eggs and fertilize them and transfer them back into the body through artificial means. But since you can't actually make implantation take place or hCG to rise or pregnancy to occur, what exactly is artificial impregnation?
When you're carrying a robot?
When you've stuffed a few pairs of socks up your hoohaa to fill out your uterus for that almost-believable pregnancy look?
When you get that positive pee stick and then the negative beta...is that artificial impregnation?
