Like any Do-It-Yourself (DIY) activity, DIY insemination comes with instructions. With the Life Choice Syringe, we’ve streamlined both the product itself and the process of self insemination – we’re dedicated to making conception stress-free for you, so that you can experience the happiness of bringing a child into the world.
But yes, there are a few instructions to follow, aimed at maximizing your chances of conceiving through self insemination. We’ve tried to make them simple, informative, and, dare we add, enjoyable? So relax, enjoy, and let us know of any suggestions you may have to help us improve this guide to DIY insemination.
Step 1: Keep it Clean. In the hygienic sense, we mean! With self insemination, you’re dealing with sensitive fluids and areas of the body – staying clean increases the chances of DIY insemination success. This means washing your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before using the syringe. Oh, and our syringes are Single Use Only – so toss it when you’re done!
Step 2: Special Delivery! Self insemination relies on your fertility. In this case, as we know, every drop counts – position the syringe with the funnel end close to the penis. After ejaculation, let the fluid collect inside of the syringe body.
Step 3: Take a deep breath. Anxious? Relax – DIY insemination isn’t rocket science! We’re serious – self insemination’s easy with the Life Choice Syringe. You’re past the hardest part.
Step 4: Preparation. Insert the plunger into the body of the syringe by about a half inch – the red plug should be pointing down while you do this. Now, tip the syringe upside down, with the red plug pointing up. Next, remove the plug. (These steps put the ‘self’ in self insemination, we know.) Squeeze any remaining air out of the plunger. At this point, be careful not to push out any semen – the point is to retain as much as you can.
Step 5: Lock and Load! You should now lubricate the syringe tip with a lubricant designed for self insemination, like Pre-Seed, should you so desire.
Step 6: Special Delivery, Pt. 2. Gently slide the syringe into the vagina until reaching the baseplate – if the syringe reaches the baseplate before full insertion, don’t force it (your partner will appreciate it). Slowly squeeze the plunger to release the semen. You’ve just given your partner the best shot at natural conception that DIY insemination can offer!
Step 7: Wait just a minute… Seriously! Leave the syringe in place for 60 seconds, to avoid pulling semen out along with it.
Step 8: Breathe. You’re done – it’s out of your hands! Relax.
