HELP sooo CONFUSED!

Has anyone transferred and egg fertilized by DS and one fertilized by DH. We did a split cycle last time and have some frozen made with DS. We are doing a fresh cycle next month but history has shown the ones made from DH don't turn out so well. So I met with RE today and asked if he could transfer both to increase are chance and he said no because of ASRM guidelines. Has any heard of this? Is this true? i

I do know of some ladies who have done IUI with a combo of DS and DH's sperm.

My RE said that doctors were doing exactly that , and there were some paternity suits because of it. Consequently he said ASRM is holding a position against it. I'm contacting ASRM directly to be sure but I really don't see what the issue is when your already okay with using a Donor.

Thanks for your reply

I will be doing a FET of mine and fresh donor soon - just got the green light from RE. So maybe it is up to RE to follow guidelines or not . . . . I'm just happy I don't have to waste time and emotions doing a 2ww w/my embies which even though the lab says 30% chance I feel like it would be 3%. I want to up the odds!
