Topic: Planning & TTC
My wife and I purchased 9 vials from our chosen donor... he has less than 12 remaining now and I want to have at least 2 kids that are related.
Is it excessive to purchase more? How many more? We are TTC for the first time two weeks from now and I’m feeling stressed that it will take multiple tries. We had to use a new 0% interest credit card to afford this many... do we tack on more in case?
I’m 29, 122 lbs, 5’3” - no known fertility issues. I have a 24-25 day cycle with a 9-10 day luteal phase.
For the past few weeks I’ve been taking Ritual prenatals, flaxseed oil, calcium, vit d (I’m deficient)... and last week I started coenzyme10, pomegranate extract, red raspberry leaf extract, pink stork probiotics, and evening primrose oil. I started using progesterone cream the other day to increase my luteal phase.
I came off of 3 prescription meds the beginning of November and am down to 30mg of duloxetine a day.
We plan to do home insemination - two per cycle at positive OPK (also monitoring changes in CM and cervix texture and position with a speculum) and 12 hours later - home IUI (we have everything sterile and IUI vials). OR maybe ICI.
Support, suggestions, anything, please! I feel crazy trying to make everything perfect so that we have enough vials for siblings.
