In brief: Could be
Donor sperm insemination use for women over 38 with no partner happens commonly.
I recommend that you see an infertility specialist and make sure your ovarian reserve testing is normal, tubes are open and proceed before its too late due to your age. Fertility rapidly declines after age 38. Psych counseling may help you work thru your decision. Asrm has a list of recommended counselors.
