At home insemination with donor

Postby Tammy Wondra » Tue Jan 09, 2007 4:03 pm

Hi everyone! My dh and I are thinking about going with donor and thinking about doing at home insemination and I'm looking to get as much information as possible and anxious to hear from people who have done this. Specfically, I'd like to know:

1. How many cycles have you done and how many did it take to get pregnant?
2. I've heard of IUI sperm and ICI sperm--what's the difference and is one better than the other?
3. Did you have your husband/partner help?
4. How many vials did you use per cycle?
5. What is the "right" way to do it? (May seem like a stupid question, but wondering if there are "tricks" so to speak).
6. When do you order the sperm according to your cycle? (don't want to order too late/too early).

Maybe I'm freaking out and thinking too much , but wanting to get as much info as possible before we go with this and decide this is the right way for us. Any information is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!!

I have been looking into this as well. What are your IF problems? We were thinking about doing it because my DH has had a vasectomy. That is the only reason that we did IVF in the first place. Now we are thinking about using donor sperm and trying it at home. Have you looked into this any more??? I have found a few sites that offer it.

Hi Tanya!

Thanks for replying. My husband has impotence and cannot ejaculate on top of that (see my other post). I've looked into it quite a bit and have talked to people who have done it or are trying it. Can't believe how many people have to go through this....

What kind of information have you found out? If you have questions, please ask. I might know some answers or I'll try to find out for you. :)

Thanks again...feel free to contact me anytime. If you want to contact me through email, my email address is tammywondra@yahoo.com

Thanks Tanya!
