Success stories for DIY self-insemination at home??


My HUsband and I are trying to concieve Via insemination.
(Problems with ejaculation, sperm is fine) So its our only way. I was wondering if there were any success stories of the DIY method. Or the Turkey baster method, that its come to be known as.
Any advice/success stories would be greatly appreciated and inspiring!!
BD to all!

we got preg this way - so did a friend of mine on here. I lost the child...my friend had her's...not that the "method" really matters on whether you keep it or not.

dh ejaculates into a cup...use oral syringe to suck it all up - insert into me - and then I "o" to aid in the contractions helpful in getting sperm through the cervix.

gl!

I did a ton of research on this. Because I was suggested and IUI and do not have health insurance to cover it. So I thought of the turkey baster way lol. Only using a oral syringe. Not a ton of success stories I would love to see.more. But when I explained to my DH the look on his face was kinda like wtf? No he doesnt want to ejaculate in a cup. But he said fine whatever with attitude. Im just trying as many things as possible to benifit the swimmers. I was watching the discovery channel on new life and most die as soon as they enter. Using preseed to help with that

My Dh had the same reaction. And hes a little uncomfortable with it. He says it feels Fake. He felt like it was un-natural. And I guess I understand. But fortunately in our situation we ve had a major break-through and dont need necessarily that method anymore. Its still not very conventional but it works for us and everyone is happy.
Preseed is an excellent idea!!! I was gonna try this month but got it too late. If a BFN i ll be trying that next month too! Good lukc to you!

Good luck to you too! Its.ok if you call me nuts or somethin but I did so much research on it I then stumbled upon freezing and properly unthawing sperm. My idea was to do that too. Ha ha sperm in my freezer how weird.dont see that every day. Havent done it due to I gave up last month we are NTNP and in january back to trying. Any who... I told him we should freeze it as well because he is only home on fri sat &sun night. Every month. He is in a hotel mon-thurs works all day fri 2hrs away from home. Working on a university putting glass in. soo WE ALWAYS miss when I ovulate and its always during the week. I drive.down to see.him occasionaly but his boss rooms with him so theres no where.for.me to sit or lay for 30mins and the car.is not ideal lol. He didnt go.for that idea.either.
I just want to be a mommy all you here, know how good it would/is feel to hear your child who you brought into this world say I love you mommy or I.love.you daddy melts my heart. Even when I hear friends of mine's babies say I love you mommy. Awww I want that.

MrsHamstra I understand completely! That must be really tough! I know that achey filling of wanting to be a mother so badly. One of the reasons I joined here. I didnt know what to do with the frustration and the pain. Being on here has been a real helper for me. Def lets me see I am not alone. Which helps alot. I really hope the freezing thing works for u! and that you DH comes home during o time Keeping FX for everyone this cycle!!
