home insemination kits

anyone ever done home insemination.

i'll explain - weve been trying to concieve properly now for about 8 wks - i know not long!!! but im already finding the pressure to "make love" insurmountable. so after our rather horrid consult yesterday we spoke about buyin a home kit and getting him to do the the 'needful' without pressure on me to 'perform'. i may even want to have intimacies with him then as pressure is off.

we have a clearblue monitor and waiting for home kit to come from ebay, so hopefully next month we're all set.

if anyone has done this - how successful was it?

does anyone think im strange, cos maybe i do a bit ?o(

thanks for any replies

I totally don't think you're strange and would be interested in finding out how good the kits are and whether you are success with it. Doing the deed 'on time' each month takes out the fun and pleasure some times and completely eliminating that need and just doing it when you want to sounds lovely to me!

thanks natural horse.

i think the other reason for trying it this way, is he has an average size thingy. and i dont think it goes far enough so if i use a longer syringe then im bypassing cervix (less leakage tmi) and nearer to the target. anyhoo we shall see. last reason, by 10 pm i want my bed for zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz purposes not to turn into this vibrant man magnet hahahahahaha. but any successes stories would be brill!!!!

Hi Jade,
Please don't do anything that can hurt you. Inserting a catheter in and 'bypassing' (I'm assuming you mean reaching right into your womb) the cervix is a complex thing and it can be dangerous. The catheter may make you bleed if you are not careful, and more seriously you could cause an internal infection. When people make love, the man's penis does not get to the womb.
Fertility clinics use specific equipment to avoid injury and also they sterilise all the equipment properly. You do not have acces to this.
I know times sex is not romantic, but it's the safest thing you can do.
Take care

hi maria,

its ok, dont worry. have only got a syringe not a catheter, syringe is probably same length as you use for the thrush pessary plungers. i wouldnt do anything to harm my 'incubator' :-D. too precious to me. i just want to ease the pressure on me to perform, so going to mess about for a bit.

hope your ok

You can still get an infection with the syringe and you can still hurt yourself. The only safe way to do it is either naturally or in a clinic, with a qualified person carrying out the procedure.

Im sure you know how to go about it without hurting yourself Jade, its no different to inserting a tampon or like you say a thrush plunger... both of which arent sterile either. Good luck, i'd be interested to see how you get on.
With less pressure on both you and your partner, it may just work, fingers crossed x

your cervical fluid holds on to the sperm, locks it in place and carries it to where needed so 'leakage' really isn't an issue when it comes to conception.
