Anyone here doing at home artificial insemination?

My husband and I have been trying to conceive using at-home artificial insemination for 9 months now. A very good friend donates his sperm at every ovulation (he's a trooper). For the first 7 tries we used the syringe method. We got bored with that not working and so have tried the past two times using a Diva Cup. 

Still no luck but am waiting to test after the most recent try. Fingers crossed.

Is anyone else trying to conceive using artificial insemination at home? Has anyone had success? I would love to talk to someone who is/has been in the same frustrating boat.

All the best,

    No never have but what do you think of this?

     already have a couple kids, but they were accidents. Now that I am married, we want to have a legit kid. So how often should I have sex. My husband wants to do it every day, but I said probably like 2-3 times a day, because that is what I did with both of my ex's that I have kids with. What do you do?

    "you want to have a legit kid". Wtf?  I am am a child of divorce and this *** pisses me off. A child is a child. I hope that your "non legit" kids don't know that you feel this way about them, IT HURTS.

    Hey, with the right mood lighting, a few scented candles, maybe a little Journey on in the background (Faithfully is a good one), I could probably get it on with a turkey baster. 

    God knows in college I had worse.

    I've heard every other day is best during the time of the month that you are most fertile.
