My wife and I were/are planning on trying to get pregnant this month. When we tried to place our order for frozen ICI sperm last night, we were told that there is only one vial left. However, there is plenty of IUI left...
So, can we use IUI sperm for an at-home intracervical insemination? We're feeling a lot little overwhelmed by all of the information out there. Any help/guidance that you can provide would be very much appreciated!
As I understand it (and I did IUI in a fertility clinic, so it's not something I really looked into and I could easily be wrong about this), you can use IUI washed sperm when doing an ICI, but it's slightly less likely to work, and the IUI sperm will cost more.
Good luck TTC!

I don't know how late this post is, but I just wanted to say that we did a home IUI with Shae, and it was really easy, I would get the IUI sperm and do an IUI instead of a ICI. If you need any tips or advice, apparently DW is an expert b/c it worked the first month!
