Has anyone done insemination at home? Did you just use a syringe, or did you use catheters and actually put the sperm inside of your cervix?

I'm asking because my DH and I have been TTC for almost 4 years. We are considering doing an at home insemination using the catheter but wanting to see if there are any other success stories out there. We suspect (as does our RE) that our issue might possibly be hostile CM. My doc wants to do IUI but we can't start until spring (because of travel to the RE's office and bad weather and such). We just don't want to 'waste' a few months.

Here is the kit we are looking at buying.

just curious to see what others thoughts are.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

I would be very hesitant about doing IUI at home. You risk an infection.

I personally would try a home insemination by placing the sample as close as possible to the cervix. I would also get something called pre-seed. I believe its supposed to make the CM friendly to the sample.

I agree with the prior poster. Our son was conceived via TS using at home inseminations, we used syringes and preseed.

Intrauterine insemination should never be done at home because semen can cause infection inside the uterus. The cervical mucous sort of filters the harmful parts in the semen allowing the sperm to enter the uterus.
