I got my dd through a home ICI after several failed IUIs with Clomid and expensive injectible meds. I am a strong believer!!

Thanks for all of your replies. We are definitely going to give it a shot. It's better than sitting the cycle out, right?
 
We are going to buy the kit from Northwest Cryobank and we will be using frozen sperm. I will probably use Robitussin a couple of days before for my CM and we will do at least three inseminations.

Are there any other tips or tricks that I'm missing?

Just make sure you use the "expectorant" Robitussin (not the cough suppressant). It's the Guafenisen (sp.?) that helps cm. They make a pure Guafenisen syrup - that's what you want.
 
GOOD LUCK to you!

We bought the kit also but didn't end up using the syringes. Decided the cups were the better way to go. You can save a bit of money just buying the Instead cups at Walmart. Good Luck! Oh and try to have an O after the insemination!

We did home ICI, but I was rubbish at getting my timing right.
 
Also, we was using a known donor, and some months he wasnt available on the days I needed him, so my timing was WAY off.
However, one month my timing was spot on, and I got pregnant. I did sadly m/c, but it goes to show, it can and DOES work!
Best of luck,
