We were so lucky - used fresh sperm from known donor on day 12 and 13 with 5ml syringe and worked 1st try, (we used a specimen pot and ins within about 5mins then i led with my hips up for an hour). Our son is now 3 and we have been trying with a different donor for 3 months. This is our 1st month with clomid and still in the 2 week wait.

What happens if the semen touches the hand and or the skin?

Lol yep wash it off. But I will say, for us, we didn't have any problems with that. Whoever is getting inseminated does have to come to terms with the fact that it takes sperm to do so. I still thought the sperm was gross but I was thankful for it. It wasn't really the focus.

:rotflmao do you mean while it's still frozen? They say the extreme cold can burn you, but we had no problems. We tried to only touch with a cloth until it had thawed a few minutes.

You probably could still use it if you wanted to. As long as your skin wasn't terribly dirty- although that's a judgement call.
