Trying for Pregnancy
we are going to begin trying to get pregnant at home using the 'turkey baster' method. for anyone who has done this...lots of questions. some of the main questions right now:
1. Can you recommend a turkey baster or syringe? What works better? How far do you have to insert the syringe in order to reach the cervix (which I believe you are trying to coat with the sperm)?
2. How quickly do you have to do this? Does the sperm die soon after being exposed to the air? Or can we take our time to ensure we're not screwing up?
3. Did you add saline to the semen? Is it difficult to 'suck' the semen into the syringe without adding saline?
Lots of other questions but those are some big ones for right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are both in our 20s and are hoping to avoid the costs of assisted fertilization if possible. If anyone would want to detail how they went through this process, that would be wonderful. If you would rather PM me, that's ok as well.
