Sample left in syringe?

My wife and I are trying to decide if we want to try ICI or IUI. My concern is how much sample is left in the syringe, especially with IUI. And we can ensure that we are able to use the entire sample!

Thank you!!!

    ICI is about 1 ml, IUI is about .5 ml. Using it all shouldn't be a problem.

    There was none left in the hub of the syringe? The tip? Or if you used a catheter, inside the catheter?

    I used a syringe for all three of my icis at home. It turned out fine.
