My vials are only available in IUI form so despite the fact I have only had luck one time doing an IUI by myself I thought I would try again today. You read and hear about having a big O after you AI with your ICI vials but I had read if you O BEFORE you try your IUI that your cervix will be more open and make it easier to get the cath in...I will certify that YES that works nicely. Even when I had my HSG the dr. had a hard time getting the cath through but today...it worked great...so you might concider trying it if you are doing a IUI at home...Sorry about TMI...

    That's interesting! I just have no clue when I O. Thinking 24 hours past. I only want to do 1 vial. After many tries with 2 when I was TTC & all neg I moved on to just one. It took but its such a shorter time frame that survive. Timing is so much more nerve wracking with just one try. Almost makes me want to try two vials :-(

    Just to confirm... O means orgasm vs. Ovulation. Is that right? Could easily be confused.

    Yes...I was trying to be nice...O does mean orgasm...not an easy thing early in the morning but where there's a will there is a way...by the way I read about this from a book a fertility clinic wrote...if their drs. have problems getting caths in they step out and leave their patients/partners to it and come back in after an orgasm! I know for sure the swimmers made it in as I cramped a bit later...
