I was wondering if there were any single women on here TTC with donor sperm as it is something I am interested in.I haven't come across any women choosing to do this and actually more crtisism than anything.

You may be better off working with a fertility clinic and doing IUI. The clinic I worked with would store donor sperm free up to a year as long as you were actively in treatment, so you could order extra to cover a few cycles. Also if the sperm is not up the guaranteed standards the bank claims you can often get a refund (my docs told me they are now trying to get so many vials out of every "donation" that they really cut it close, and on average 50% of samples from all baanks do not meet published minimum guarantees)

I've always known I wanted children & decided in my early/mid twenties, that if I were still single at 30, I'd do it solo.

I have a odd request for you. Would you mind posting your donor sperm counts after your insemination tomorrow? I used Cryolab in MN 4 times, and none of the donors I used met the banks standards for minimum motile sperm. I saw a doctor yesterday at a new clinic, and he was shocked at my experience, he had never heard anything bad about Cryolab. I am assuming it was just my really bad luck. Thanks! And good luck!!
