Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone is in my same or a similar situation. I'm ttc but for reasons my husband has difficulty dtd. We're diy-ing it at home with an oral medication syringe (not actually a turkey baster obviously). I've been reading endlessly online, but I'm curious if anyone has actually successfully conceived with an at home insemination.

Thanks,
OS

Thanks. We've been trying for a few months and since I don't know anyone irl who's done it this way, I don't have anyone to talk to and I've been feeling like maybe it's all futile. This month is the first time we've added softcups into the mix and I feel like it made a difference. I'm 1dpo now so now it's just waiting to be able to take the test.

OreganoSpice, didn't wnat to read and run. Got no personal experience but I cannot think of a reason why it should not work.. esp with soft cups. I once followed the journey of a lesbian couple who used the method. They also tried to raise their hips and reach the other big O to boost their chance. Contractions after an O can help sperms to reach their destination. Maybe that could help you.

Good luck with your journey.
