artificial insemination

Day 1

Hi I am Kahliah and I am going to be starting the process to make a baby. I am will be 29 soon and I did want I wanted with my career but I forgot to have a baby?! LOL I am at the point in my life where I would like to have a child. I am about 80% ready. I am no longer looking for the right man of my dreams, now I am looking for the right sperm! Smile

I am learning as much as I can about Artificial insemination before I take the leap. I have read more books then I wanted to on being a single mother. My mom was a single mother for most of my life and she did a good job.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am 25 years old and trying for a second child. It took my husband and I almost 6 years for our first child. We had testing done and I was fine but he had a low sperm count. The doctor said that it was very unlikely that we would conceive without in-vitro or artificial insemination. However, 8 months after the testing, we were successful in getting pregnant on our own.

I was just wondering if it was likely that it would take us a such a long time this time.

Thanks.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
My question is relating to my preparations for artificial insemination.

I'm 38 and dr suggested my egg reserve was low and I'd need to conceive in possibly 4-6 months. I've taken meds and injectables under the direction of my fertility doctor.

As of today, we have three eggs, two perfect ones and one small one. The next step is to inject Ovidrel (I think this releases the egg?) and to come in for insemination. We will be using cryogenically preserved sperm for the insemination.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I've been through your detailed, informative and interesting list of your preconception and ovulation tips and given my situation I'm confused. I'm deeply in love with a man who lives in Kenya and I'm in South Africa. We have discussed the idea of having a baby but the distance poses a big problem for us and he is forever busy traveling but we've tried the natural way.
