Hello D and thanks for your post.
Probably the first thing to do is to talk to your healthcare provider about your desire to have a family.
It is entirely possible for you to become pregnant, and the idea of artificial insemination seems reasonable. (Of course, you'd want to make sure that you're not using any lubricants with spermicide.)
Best of luck to you,
