1. If you used a donor (rather than your spouse), how did you find your donor
Our donor went to high school with both my gf and I. I have been looking for hime for a few years, just to catch up, and just when I gave up, I found his brother online, who gave me his #. We texted for a month or so, and he offered out of the blue.
2. What method(s) did you use to track ovulation
OPK, although I never got an actual pos.
3. What method(s) of insemination did you use
Went to www.totalconception.com and ordered some parts from the kit. Syringe, catheter, spec, and collection condom. Once I was "jacked up" as my gf so lovingly put it, she placed the syringe in the mucus at the os, and sloooowly injected. Then I put in an Instead cup for the remainder of the night. (Oh, and there was some lovemaking, you know, to make it official.)
4. How many times per cycle did you inseminate and what was the timing relative to ovulation (e.g. 2 days before and day of)?
I insemmed two days before, the day of and the day after. Worked first cycle, praise God!!
5. Logistics. Where did you meet your donor and how did the donation occur?
He lives 3 hours from us, so he took a greyhound and spent the weekend at our house. I gave him a collection condom and some preseed, and he brought his deposit to my bedroom door when he was done.
6. Did it work? If so, how many cycles did it take?
Oh yes! First try!!
7. If you used a donor, what is the relationship you have (or intend to have) with your donor?
Baby belongs to me and my gf, although it will know who daddy is, and he has offered financial support, moral support, anything we need.
8. Anything else you think people should know?
Don't stress too hard, and try to relax. I can't stress enough how helpful it was to find the company that sells at home insem kits! Made it much easier!

He is my husband. We had thought about using this method for the days when we were way too exhausted to dtd. When he started having ED issues this month. We thought we would give this a try.
2. What method(s) did you use to track ovulation
OPK
3. What method(s) of insemination did you use
An oral syringe
4. How many times per cycle did you inseminate and what was the timing relative to ovulation (e.g. 2 days before and day of)?
Well we didn't even think about doing this until the day before yesterday. We got the supplies and did it yesterday. Cd 13- the day of a pos opk and we will be doing it tonight as well.
5. Logistics. Where did you meet your donor and how did the donation occur?
We did it in our bedroom. Since it was our first time I had him to leave his sample in the bedroom and then I did the insemination myself. I think I did everything correctly.
6. Did it work? If so, how many cycles did it take?
Hope so. Will find out in a couple weeks!
7. If you used a donor, what is the relationship you have (or intend to have) with your donor?
He will be the baby's daddy!
8. Anything else you think people should know?
It was actually a very confortable procedure. I was so nervous, but it was actually not awkward at all.

1. If you used a donor (rather than your spouse), how did you find your donor

Used DHs sperm. We were having issues with 'delivering the goods' as it were, so decided to give this a try

2. What method(s) did you use to track ovulation

CBFM only this cycle although along the way have used OPKs and temping

3. What method(s) of insemination did you use

Used a 10 ml syringe and conceive plus. Inserted it myself, had orgasm and kept hips on pillow for 30 mins.

4. How many times per cycle did you inseminate and what was the timing relative to ovulation (e.g. 2 days before and day of)?

This cycle we did every other day starting CD11, 13, 15 and 17 and ovulation was on day 16.

6. Did it work? If so, how many cycles did it take?

Yes!! Baby number 5 is now cooking! It took 3 cycles

And can I say a massive thank you to all you ladies for all the really helpful advice. I can't thank you enough for helping us finally get our BFP after 11 month.

1. If you used a donor (rather than your spouse), how did you find your donor

I found him through the internet.

2. What method(s) did you use to track ovulation

I know my cycles very well and know that I ovulate on day 13 of my cycle, so I went by that. I have never used OPKs or thermometers or fertility trackers

3. What method(s) of insemination did you use

I used a 10ml syringe inserted into my vagina at the base of my cervix. I then masturbated and achieved orgasm and left my hips raised on 3 pillows for half an hour, then I wore a sanitary liner for 5 hours before "cleaning" the area

4. How many times per cycle did you inseminate and what was the timing relative to ovulation (e.g. 2 days before and day of)?

I inseminated once on my first cycle and was successful. I inseminated on day 12, the day before ovulation

5. Logistics. Where did you meet your donor and how did the donation occur?

We met first through email and I interviewed him and asked for references as well. We met in person at the train station and the insemination took place at my house

6. Did it work? If so, how many cycles did it take?

It did work. It took on the first cycle and my little girl is set to arrive in April

7. If you used a donor, what is the relationship you have (or intend to have) with your donor?

We still keep in contact through text message from time to time, and I send him updates and ultrasound pictures. He is willing to meet my daughter if it is something my daughter would like. This probably will not happen though, as my estranged husband and I may be getting back together soon and he plans to raise her as his

8. Anything else you think people should know?

Donation is a blessing. Please do not think it's disgusting or wrong. Every baby is a blessing no matter how he or she is conceived.

I think I will try the diva cup this time. Maybe we'll have some luck. Been trying for 6 months now.

It's been interesting reading everyone's methods. I hope I get to post here soon... We're going to do our first donor cycle in February if all goes as planned.
