  • i havent had any since i had a miscarriage two years ago my doctor know about it. he says its normal i did the insmenination by checking my ovulation which 5-4-11 i was on high fertility so i had a friend who gave me his sperm. so that is why i cant go by the regular rule of testing after a missed period.

  • i did it with a turkey baster but you can also buy a needles syringe, but it's pretty much the same.

  • Wow, and just when I thought I had heard it all...but anyway..your Ovulation is on a cycle just like your period used to be...so typically 2 weeks after....depending on whether or not your period used to be on a 28 day cycle or 30..
