Bad idea with the syringe, sorry! You could accidently push the semen past your cervix, which can cause all kinds of nastiness. (The semen is a vehicle for the sperm to get to your CM, and then swim up towards the egg.) It can cause infections if put directly into your cervix.

You can however have him do his thing into a softcup or divacup and place it up to your cervix. (Called ICI - Intra-cervical Insemination) It gives you the same chances as the old fashioned way . Make sure to do it soon after he finishes though, since it liquefies pretty quickly and might make it messy to insert.

Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.

DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.

DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.

TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!

IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!
