Can you please tell me what type of syringe is needed to do this. How did you get the semen in the syringe? Did you take any special vitamins before you started this process? How long did you track your ovulation?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Artificial insemination or self insemination process requires adequate preparation and guidance from your gynecologist/obstetrician. These kits for home insemination or self insemination are available with your gynecologist/obstetrician or with the infertility clinic. After careful evaluation and work-up done for you and your partner/donor, the chances of success are predicted and guidelines are suggested along with ovulation tracking (with monitoring cervical mucus changes and the BBT or basal body temperature charting to predict your ovulation and time your insemination for having fruitful results). Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
