The place we usually purchase our IUI cath and syringe no longer offers the option to buy online. Can anyone, who does at home IUI's, share where you purchase your supplies? Thanks!!!

We bought ours from the office of the midwives that we plan on using. They didn't sell many to patients so they basically just sold them to us at cost. They made up a little packet of everything we needed, not just the IUI catheters. It's been a while so I forget how much they were though!

This is where we got ours. I'm not sure if you can buy in small quantities for some of the items though. Perhaps you could find a couple of families who wanted to go in a box of catheters? That's what we did.

Also, I don't know what you're using, but my ex was a vet, and laughed her head off when she saw the fancy tomcat catheters I had been ordering online (for $$$). Turns out, there are the exact same tomcat catheters vets use to, well, unblock tomcats. So, if you know someone who works at a vets office, you could try to snag/buy some that way. I think the time I got pregnant was actually with one from her office.

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. That's the exact same place where I've been buying them, but they're out and probably won't have any for a few months. I placed an order, and when I didn't receive it two weeks later, I called the clinic, and that's what they told me.

Interesting about the vet thing. . I'll have to make a few calls about that one.

Oh, how frustrating! Friends of ours used a different type of catheter from their site (can't remember which one, one of the firmer ones), and really liked it. I think they're more expensive, but they were really happy with it.

I totally feel your pain on this. If I had any extras lying around still, I'd totally send them your way!

(Oh, speaking of which, maybe try posting on the birth professionals forum? Maybe there's a midwife or two there with some extras...)
