Chan, semen allergy popped straight into my mind when i read your post. not common but out there. Which would be a bummer for that particular donor. If you havent had a reaction with previous partner(s) with unprotected s3x. A visit to the GP/FS would be my recommendation to assess and hopefully help with your reaction, both physically and stress. Or I just thought, the equipment u used to do the AI may have something in it (like latex) that you are sensitive to. The problem if it is an allergy, each time you are exposed the body can ramp up its reactions.
Micca, thanks for the PM with my new shopping list - OMG, I will have to sit down with the vitamins etc at home to check off and work out the others to buy. Thanks, I read on a thread somewhere about eating kiwi fruit too, lucky i like that. I have had problems with the elevit, I think it's the iron content as previously FeFol made my guts very uncomfortable. can only take half an elevit but a normal multi vit with the rest of the dose of folic acid is ok. I was thinking accupuncture as well. eek! I only like the blunt end of the needle. I perloined some emla cream for the injections.
BlueAngel, it seems from your issues that is another reason I am glad I chose a donor with open disclosure, I imagine that should negate that problem??? What a pain for you though! Sorry that AF arrived.
Kismet, I loved the 'BFFN' instead of a 'BFN', sounds much more appropriate in this situation!
To all of you with various lurgys. I hope you recover quickly.
AFM, got the email to book in for paper signing next week which will probably do on Tuesday to fit in with my shifts, then waiting for AF.
