Hi everyone,

I am new to this board and website.

I was wondering if there are any gay couples around who have gone through artificial insemination and would share their experiences.

My girlfriend and I are planning to have children within the next 2 or 3 years or so and would like to start educating ourselves, what to expect etc. etc. etc.

Thank you!
Tina

Hello all,

I am a 35 year old lesbian who is currently undergoing the process of artificial insemination. Like most of you, I had a difficult time finding positive and helpful information on the web. As a result, I decided to build my own site to share my experience with other lesbian women. If you are interested in getting AI information and reading my first hand account as I go through the process then log on to http://www.artificial-insemination-for-lesbians.com.

I know this posting was done a long time ago and you probably have a beautiful toddler by now, but I would still love to hear your story. I am 36 years old and my partner and I have been trying for 2 years. We did 6 IUIs through a doctor and 1 IVF. He can't find anything wrong with me, so I want to just try it at home! I think it would be much less stressful and my partner could participate more. Please pass on any helpful advice. Thanks. We are beyond frustrated!

Me and my partner are tryin to find out as much information about artificial insemination as we can. Before actually doing it. I know I want kids but in a few years.
If anyone can please tell me what they can and/or websites, it would be so helpful.

Thank you.
