I am new to this community. I ended up here by googling "donor sperm". There is not much info or help out there and I am so pleased to have found this community. My husband and I are discussing doing dIUI by this fall hopefully.

Any tips, advice? We were originally going to attempt IVF but several factors including cost, possible male genetic factors and others have made us sway toward donor sperm. I plan on having an HSG this summer, I have had all my bloodwork and everything looks okay. Keep your fingers crossed for clear tubes, otherwise IVF will be our only hope!

I don't know much about donor sperm (we're DE) but wanted to wish you luck!

Thanks for the welcome! We are not sure what protocols we will be using...we have just recently switched our mindframe from IVF to dIUI. We still need to have the donor talk with our RE, which will hopefully happen this month.

I will update when I know something. Thanks again!

Welcome! I am almost 7 weeks pregnant through the gift of Donor sperm. We were super lucky and got our positive on the first IUI that we did! Whatever questions you have - please feel free to ask. I would love to be able to help someone through this process, because I know how lonely and difficult it can be.

We are so pleased that we chose to use donor sperm instead of going through years and years of difficult and unlikely procedures. Even though the baby isn't my husband's "genetic" child - it already feels 100% his. It was absolutely the right decision for us.

Fingers crossed for clear tubes for you!
