Quoting Brittanylikesyou:" As for the sperm dying seconds after it hits air... that doesnt make any sense to me...seeing as a vagina ... [snip!] ... gets up in there.. I think the soft cup idea could *maybe* work...put it in and then lift your pelvis? lol. worth a shot?"


Sperm dies when it dries. If kept in a moist, warm environment (such as our vagina) it can live 3-5 days.

maybe not stand on your head but lay on the ground and use your feeton the wall so your pelvis is off the ground

My wife and I conceived our son via the "turkey baster" method . We also were trying for almost 2 years and conceived and we also used the egg white method and it worked first try. We haven't had any success for baby #2 yet (4th month ttc) but I encourage you to look up the eggwhite method if you don't produce EWCM , make sure your aiming the syringe at your cervix, cervical suction ( tmi: orgasm via vibrator etc) and tracking your cycles accurately. We used the instead cups after to hold all of the spermie in for a while just in case.



Best of luck and PM e if you have ANY questions love =]

Ladies, knowing what she's possibly going through trying to conceive I don't think it's too nice to mark smart remark regarding the way she's going about this. You all may have husbands that can easily ( not all of you ) get you pregnant but with us lesbian families it's not easy at all. My OB is a lesbian, she tried to conceive with her wife for a while and had no luck and THEN resorted to IVF (because her income allowed). IVF is NOT cheap. You might say "neither is a child", but look at me i'm not wealthy, couldn't afford IVF and can more than provide for my baby boy tht was conceived via " turkey baster method". All im saying is to have a little bit of consideration for the OP. =]



REGARDLESS of how it's being done, we're all here trying to conceive.

what she said lol. I live by ovulation tests! look online for a ovulation calculator and it will tell you your most fertile days and start testing around then.

you usually ovulate 14 days before your next period starts thats on a regular luteal phase but if you use OPKs you can find out for definate. also if you dont want to use egg whites you can by pre seed which is like EWCM. pre seed, opks and using a vitamin called conceive well gold all helped me conceive my son, but that was with regular sex with my man, took 6 months. just keep trying with the turkey baster around your fertile time.

The sperm donor I have is good friend of mine and I tried calculating my fertile days before with the my.days app and I missed my period but after doing a pregnancy test my cycle came on :-( but that was the first time im doing it again but I just really think the soft cups would wrk seeing that iys right under
my cervix. But I just dnt see how would the get out of the cup to my cervix. Another question..... can you by preseed from a walmart and how much would it cost and do I put the pre seed in the cup with the sperm
