I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to make this work. I have to fly out of state to my IP's and I stay for about 2 weeks with my son. We have her husband do his thing into a sterial cup and then I use a sterial syring to put it into myself. Obviously we are doing ourselfs, as with doctors it becomes very expensive fast. I just returned from my second trip. The last two months I have started my period on the first. I have had a little bit of cramping but no period yet. I tested early and it gave me a negitive. I was wondering if anyone had any tricks to help make it work. The second time I did orgasim while putting the sperm in as that is suppose to help.

Also I would love to get to talk to any other mothers who have done this.

  • No advice but I wish you luck, there is only a 20% chance of pregnancy under perfect timing so it could take some time, just be patient and dont stress about it. also you should lay down for about 20min after injection as this helps the swimmers make it up without having to fight gravity in the process.
