Doctor, during home insemination there was some air bubbles in the syringe?is there any problem in conceiving?can it cause embolism?

No embolism: Nope. As others and I have mentioned before. This is not a risk for embolism. You are not inserting the syringe into an artery. No need to worry and no need to ask this question again. Best wishes on getting pregnant.

Here are some ...: As stated by Dr. Killian, you have no risk for inducing air embolism as "home insemination" is non-invasive and administered outside the surface of body. To conceive more surely, seeking pro-evaluation and counseling would help more effectively if failing to conceive in 1-/2-yr trial. But still remember ovulation takes place 2 wks before period regardless of personal menstrual cycle.
