  • You should be going to an OBGYN or fertilization specialist. A turkey baster? REALLY! They DO sell ovulation prediction tests as well, EVERY Pharmacy store has them including wall-mart and Target and there's TONS of info on line on how to predict when you ovulate not to mention the MILLION and a half times the "how do I know when I'm ovulating" questions that have been asked AND answered here already.

  • Won't work if your timing is wrong!

    Go get a copy of "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler. read it through.

    AND see a specialist to get both of you tested. If he's nor producing sperm, nothing will work. If you're not producing viable eggs, nothing will work. So eliminate all those possibilities.

  • Condoms have lubrication and chemicals in them that kill sperm. This is NOT going to work.

    Chart your ovulation. Day 1 is the first day of your period.
    If your cycle is 28 days- have sex days 12-16
    if it's 30 days-- have sex days 13-17
    26 days-- days 11-15
    and so on

    The force of the sperm coming out helps them swim up there. Insertion is very unreliable.
