Topic: At home IUI
Hello I couldn't find an at home IUI thread, so I'm posting mine here. My wife and I changed things up this month and did an at home IUI. We used IUI this time, plus a speculum to check my cervix. I found a great article from IVP.com that gave step by step instructions, and we followed them to a T. I made sure to draw up some Preseed before the sperm, then some more preseed afterwards. We removed the air bubbles before inseminating. My wife used a small amount of preseed before, then inserted and slowly depressed the syringe, but I still felt some cramps during and afterwards. After about thirty minutes with my legs up, I inserted an instead cup.
I've only ever attempted ICIs, so this was a big change from before. I've been feeling cramps on and off for four days, and am extremely gassy. I am confident that I timed it well because this time I monitored my cervix, and on the day of the IUI my cervix was high soft and open, plus there was tons and tons of ewcm (some blood tinged). Today I'm 4dpo (as verfied by FF) and am awaiting the possible symptoms.
