Nothing too TMI for me, lol

Here's a link to instructions that did the job for me:http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/homeinsem.html
I did want to mention that I have always used the Instead Cup method because it's just plain easier, neater, and less dangerous, but I have a fair amount of practice with menstrual cups and used a diaphragm for bc back in the days when I was a person, so you might want to practice ahead of time with an empty cup to get the technique down to make sure you don't risk spilling "the goods".
I'm not sure how much you know (or care) about my personal drama, but I live in a small town on a small income so I had my donor ship overnight with a Bio-Tranz
, although I have heard very mixed stories as far as how successful that can be.
If you are using dh or SO instead of a known donor who you want to inconvenience as little as possible, a less expensive way to go would be the Bio-Flite
, and although I have no first hand experience, I have heard that if you order over the phone, the company will sell you the test yolk buffer spearately, although Rose, who answers the phones, can get kind of grumpy sometimes and you have to make absolutely sure that you specify that you want HUMAN test yolk buffer.
Apologies to all who really didn't want to know such graphic details;.
Tara, apologies for my previous post; I always enjoy reading you and can't remember ever being on opposing sides of an argument with you so i guess there's at least ONE Virgo in the world I get along with. The other Zodiac sign I wanted to avoid was Taurus and I found out during THAT month that I didn't TTC that another close internet friend was a Taurus.
Laurie, now that I think about it, it was an exceptionally cold night when I had that temp dip and I don't heat my house above 55 degrees, so that might have had something to do with it.
