Hi, my husband would love to start a family, however he has erectile dysfunction and very seldom is he able to produce when we have sex. This has been an issue for the past 2 years and I feel the next step is to try DIY artificial insemination. We are both in our 30's so time is not on our side.
I'm just looking out for any similar stories and if this has been successful for you.
Hi noleen sorry to hear you are having problems. There was a post on here a month or so back with an op who was on clomid and her dh/dp had ed and they used a flexi cup and some preeseed and she got a bfp. Ive had a look and cant find it but maybe another mner can remember. Best of luck!
Hi, we became pregnant on the third month of DIY artificial insemination. We used a run-of-the-mill chemist syringe and we allowed the semen to liquefy for ten minutes before I inserted it. Didn't bother with orgasm or raised hips (simply didn't believe it would work as our previous child was conceived via donor egg IVF). It is an absolute miracle (although on my ttc thread there were four of us had success with this method).
I used Clear blue digital opk's to predict ovulation and also charted my temperature). Much luck and do not give up
I have a 17 yr old via this method ovulation predictor strips didn't work as surrogates cycle so weird but she spotted a temperature anomaly 2 day before period due and ... dd is here sperm was around 20 Mins old as I had to transport to her (in pot in armpit ) and there was much head standing post insertion!
So happy to see these success stories. DH and I are trying this method for the first time this cycle. The pressure of TTC seems to be getting to him, any other time of the month everything goes off without a hitch, but at the crucial time we start to have trouble, so decided to try this. Am not expecting miracles first time round, but it is encouraging to read the success stories
These replies have definitely given me some extra hope. I started using the clearblue digital ovulation and got a flashing smiley face this morning so we will be trying this method this evening 😀 We are going to try this every other day until Tuesday so fingers crossed 😀
Snowey1982 good luck as well 😀 and thank you so much ladies for giving me hope

Would there have still been sperms in there or would they have died
