TTC using self insemination


I hope someone can help me. Me and my fiance are TTC, however there is some problems with us doing it the old fashioned way so we have decided to try self insemination at home. I got some Pre-Seed, Instead Softcups, and a 10mL syinge for this purpose. I need advice on how we should do this. Should I mix the Pre-Seed and sperm together or insert the Pre-Seed and then the sperm? I'm using OPK's and charting my temps. Advice is needed and greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I've done this method several times and all of this last cycle...Idk about the preseed but I've seen one chick say she just lubed up the softcup with preseed had her guy cum in the cup then inserted it. I am using softcups right now but I'm in my TWW so not a whole lot of advice yet lol good luck

That site has a lot of information!
Personally, what I do is insert the pre'seed, bear down to get rid of the excess (as suggested by the insert), then prop myself up on pillows and depending on whether he's home or not I either have him insert using a speculum (lubed with pre'seed), or I insert it carefully and slowly myself, moving the syringe around in a very slow circular motion to ensure i'm getting at least some exactly where it needs to go. Then I insert an instead cup, and do my best to reach orgasm (not always so easy "on demand!")...then leave the cup in for many hours. This time, I even went to work with it in.

Best of luck!!! I've heard many success stories of home insemination using husband OR donor sperm. Perhaps we'll get BFPs together

Well I did it Friday which was cd 14. I used fresh donor and used instead cup. Donor ejaculated in the cup and I inserted it right after. I couldn't lay right away so the cup helped keeping the sperm in place close to the cervix. After about 30 minute was able to lay down and had an orgasm which helps suck the sperm in. Had another orgasm about 3 hours later just to be safe. I kept the cup inside for 12 hours even if they said 3-4 would be enough. I layed down for several hours just to be safe. Only could get one sample and hoping this is my lucky time. The wait Is nerve wrecking though. Read a lot about it. And its possible just hoping it works. Donor has 3 kids all without him trying so his is good. Baby dust to all of u and please pray for me.

I did my first self insemination last night. I inserted the pre-seed first, then sperm, then inserted a instead softcup. I sat up for about 15 minutes then went to bed. I kept the softcup in for 6 hours. Looked like there was a tiny amount of semen on softcup when I removed it but I'm guessing this is normal. I wasn't able to have an orgasm but I did do some kegel exercises after inserting everything. Hopefully it worked. Good luck and baby dust to everyone.

Good luck to all of you ladies!!!
I'm 7dpo currently on this cycle...inseminated with donor sperm, pre'seed and instead cups.
In a week or so you'll be able to see if it worked.
I am doing my best to not test until the 28th, which is 16dpo. I'll have AF by then if I'm not pregnant, and it'll be late enough for me to not be sitting there questioning BFNs.
Anyhoo....good luck!!

.I recommend a practice run with water in the instead cup before the real event.
