good idea or bad Idea
Hi All

Pls can you guys advise me with something I feel really strongly about, but I am nervous to go ahead with it. First a little background, I have been hurt terribly by men in my life (cheating and so on) I also have PCOS which is a real bummer as I cant have children easily without fertility treatment or something more drastic.

NOW, this is what I am wanting to do, I want to go to a fertility clinic, or sperm bank and have artificial insemination done, without a boyfriend or husband, i know i would be a great mom and can afford it but just wonder if these things get done or note. If so does anyone know who I must phone or contact or any info on where to get hold of a place like this

Think through this carefully, nellie. Choosing to become a single mother may not be the best thing for you or the child. See a counsellor and examine your options carefully. Work also on the aftermath of your previous episodes of being terribly hurt by men, so as to set yourself free from those consequences in your attitudes and expectations. Then take your time to decide about whether you want a child, and whether this is the best way to go about it.
