I am really stressed about this. How did you all collect the boys for the IUI? I assisted dh with his S/A but this is more important so I don't think I should collect it for him. lol. My DH doesn't EVER take care of it himself like I have heard other ppl say their's does "just for fun" or whatever. I will talk to my RE tomorrow about it as well, but gosh I just don't know. Thanks guys!

I was told when we had to collect for our IUI, that the only way to collect it was for the guy to "do it" himself (without the help of us). They stressed that to me. It could possibly mess up the specimen I guess.

My DH was so disappointed when he found out that I would not be his "helper" The dr advised that we could easily mess up the sample with both of us in together. So, they gave him a little movie and magazine He claims he did not use it but hey, whatever, as long as the deed was done!

My clinic will let us collect the sample at home as long as we can get it there within 1/2 hour. They also do want it to come from masturbation, but I do help "get him started". As long as you don't use a lubricant or saliva or anything else, it should be fine.

My first IUI was successful doing it this way.

Good luck,
