    I would have sex about 10 days before so theres a fresh supply, abstaining for a long time can decrease the quality of the lil swimmers

    yeah, sounds like it.

    Wobbles, you may be right about an appointment to talk things through as I cant see it being free either! :shock: Will check it out on google.

    Thanks x

    I've never heard of this. Fertility treatments are usually IUI, IVF, ICI or ICSI. None of these are cheap, but IUI and ICI (Which are basically the same thing) are the cheapest because they are procedures that are carried out inside the body. They are basically monitored ovulation and artificial insemination at ovulation.
    In Vitro Insemination is actaully IVF as an acronym.

    IUI - Inter Uterine Insemination
    ICI = Intra-cervical Insemination
    IVF - In Vitro Insemination
    ICSI = Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection

    I had 2 weeks of daily injections in the bum, which left it abit bruised, and then at the end i had sperm placed into my uterus. And then it was a case of wait and see. I make it sound easier than it was, it was an emotional rollercoaster and unfortunatley it didn't work for me, but i do have quite a few fertility issues. The injections themselves were not too bad, you just kind off get on with it really.

    If you have any questions feel free to pm me or ask on here and i will do my best to help you. sorry if this all sounds abit vague but it was 3 years ago that i had it done.And i am rubbish at puttting things in to words.

    Will you be doing the injections yourself or do you have someone to do them for you. I got my partner to do mine and the first injection was a nightmare, i couldn't help but scream at him everythime he came near me, it took him 2 hours to convince me to let him do it, but i do have a phobia of needles.

    Good luck hun, if you ever need to chat, you know where i am. I heard that numbing your bum with a bag of frozen peas before you have then injection makes it easier, but i don't know if it works, as i didn't get told told untill i had finished my IUI.
