Considering at-home insemination with donor sperm...?


We just joined a fertility clinic that will send donor sperm to our home for us to inseminate ourselves.... Just wondering if there is anyone else out there who has tried this and had success?

Hi,

I don't know if it is the same thing but I am a surrogate and we did home inseminations for 3 cycles and got lucky on the 3rd try. Good luck

Thank you Rumpskin!

Debbie! How wonderful! I love the "Debbie is keeping me warm for mummy and daddy" that is so sweet! Such an amazing thing you are doing!

I am hoping & praying the insemination works first try... otherwise it may be another year before we can afford to try again! We have been saving for this one attempt!

Did you try anything different on the 3rd attempt that may have helped? If you don't mind me asking, were you using fresh sperm? We will be using frozen donor sperm.

Thanks!

Hi MommyTammyPA / everyone..

Im new to these boards (joined about 60 seconds ago).. I was hoping I could possibly message you to get some more information re your clinic?

My CP and I tried last year at harley street but then she lost her job (back working now - bloomin recession) and we are looking to go again next year but I wanted to research the insemination at home route as well.

My partner has said for the past four years she would never be open to the inseminate at home route but now has said she will consider it depending on how the 'product' looks when it gets to us if you know what I mean! When we went to the clinic last year it looked remarkably like water and that is what she is hoping it will be like but all I have read (and forgive me I have only googled) is that it comes 'untreated' so meaning on the this side of the cervix and I imagine it will look like it does in it's original form so (sorry im rambling and telling my whole life story!) I was wondering if you could tell me because you are getting it frozen and from a clinic if you could shed any light on how it will come to you and which clinic you will be using (and approx costs if that is not too much to ask)..

Anyway sorry to gatecrash your thread.. Really hope you can respond.

Jules

I would love to talk with you more in-depth about your process and mine. Sounds like we are in very similar situations. I am new on here too... not sure if we are allowed to post email addresses or not. Do you have a facebook or myspace link you can post? I have not yet received donor sperm. It will be shipped by fedex in a dry ice shipper. We are aiming for this month or next. The fertility clinic we chose cost $150 to join and the semen and shipping will be about 1,000 - 1200 for two vials (i think). It seems like a great clinic... i will know alot more after going thru the process. We can only afford to try once right now! If i don't get pregnant we will have to wait many months to save up more money!

Well we used fresh samples every month. For the first 2 months, I used the syringe and then placed the instead cup in. The last month we did, I done 1st day using preseed oil, used the syringe and then didn't use a cup, 2nd day I used preseed, used the syringe and then placed the cup in, 3rd day no preseed and no syringe, just poured the sample straight into the cup. I don't know which day worked obviously lol but we like to think it was the first dayas we did insems at my couples house that day so the baby would have been conceived in their bed However, while other months I spent a long time with my legs up the wall and bum in the air, this month I laid down for about half an hour afterwards and then made a point of sitting down for long periods of time as you would normally in an upright position because then your cervix is dipping straight into the cup of sperm.


Sorry if this post is a bit graphic!

Hope it helps though

Hi Jules, we seem to be in a similar situation, my Partner and I will hopefully start trying early next year. I did have a quick look at the home insemination route but would somehow much rather go via the clinic.

[oh, I think you can't send Personal Messages on here until you get to 5 posts]
