Advice/Tips for home artificial insemination


Hi ladies

For various reasons my husband and I have decided to go down the route of home artificial insemination. We have purchased 10ml medicine syringes, plastic cups and after reading some posts on here we opted for non-spermicide condoms to catch all the little swimmers

I'm worried about so much. My main concern is that the sperm will die before insemination or that the quantity wont be enough to shoot out from the syringe. We're thinking about putting some Concieve Plus into the syringe before the sperm to bulk up the quantity.

I'd love to hear from ladies that have experience TTC this way and how successful it was? Also I'd really appreciate if you have any tips you could share

I can't offer advice either but did not want to read and run. Looking forward to seeing what some others might have to say. All the best to you and hope it works quickly

Hi. My husband and I have also opted to go down this route while waiting for endless hospital appointments and I was wondering if you had been successful, or if I could also ask for any advice?

Thanks in advance and good luck to all xx

Just curious why you chose artificial insemination? Does it work better to do it like that? What is the difference?

Get OH to do it in the condom, and syringe it up with the 10ml syringe, insert slowly and rest legs up in air for as long as you can! That is all we done!

Worked both times for us, first time conceived 2nd cycle, and the next pregnancy concieved 3rd time lucky!

I wish you luck!

Anything else, you can pm me!

hi there, i've been thinking the exact same thing! not plumped and bought any concieve plus / pree-seed yet but that was my next step - my thinking was not necessarily to bump up the volume, but to protect and encourage the little swimmers to stay alive and active!

sometimes we but sometimes i have to resort to my faithful syringe due to a few "problems". I've heard its just as effective as but i'm impateint and want my NOW!!!! Fingers crossed for this month, although for some reason i'm already feeling doubtful
