3 things;<br><br>
1. Good luck. I know how stressful it can be.<br><br>
2. I do not know where you are finding your donors and all the details but please make sure they have very recent STD tests. I only mention this because you say it is a donor from January. Do not let the allure of the positive OPK make you loose your good judgement.<br><br>
3. Why would you need IVF? If you are confident in your ability to get pregnant from home inseminations, there is no reason you would need IVF, just IUIs with purchased super sperm...

IUI is pretty much the turkey baster method. Where fresh or thawed sperm is put inside, near the woman's cervix. No real medical intervention, in fact it can be done at home, yourself.<br><br>
Personally, I prefer using live donors. I like that I will have actually met and interracted with my future child's father.

I always thought IUI was interuterine so they put the sperm directly into your uterus using a thin catheter, so that would be dangerous to do at home.<br><br>
Home insems get the "goods" at the cervix level.<br><br>
am I wrong?<br><br>
I did home insems with my first surrogacy, used a needless syringe, and a menstral cup.

Hmmm... I think IUI is a term used for both procedures. But, yeah, it is used for intrauterine... I think I need to Google this. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Yeah I did too just to be sure, IUI uses catheters inside the uterus, that would be dangerous at home lol<br><br>
Insemination just goes to the cervix.

Wooops! Yes, technically IUI is when sperm is placed directly into the uterus. Sorry about that.<br><br>
AI, (artificial insemination) is the one that is interchangeable. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I did try a self IUI once, it hurt like #@&#*!!!! (Hey, desperate times, and all)
