Hi guys, so sorry that there has been so much bad news in here today.
Clem - That sucks. I hope that FS has a plan for some tests for you, so you can get some answers as to why this keeps happening.
emmy - Sorry your cycle was cancelled, how sad and frustrating. You said you're not sure what to do next; what are your options?
tigger - Sorry you couldn't get the testing done. FWIW congrats on being PUPO, but I know that it doesn't really help when you're expecting disappointment. I've been there.
GirlX - Can't hurt seing the counsellor. Talking things out can make things clearer and usually easier to deal with.
Sel - FS hasn't mentioned anything about PICSI or any other extra tests/procedures. For our last cycle we used 1 straw of Jul 2006 sample, so for this next cycle we're trying 2 straws of Aug 2006 sample. We don't know if it will make any difference, but at least using two straws should give the embryologist more to choose from. In theory. I just feel like we're wasting our time with all this, TBH I wish we could just go straight to donor. But I can't tell DH that because it would hurt him badly.
I have heard people talking about having to wait up to 6 months for anonymous donor sperm, is that correct?? Because I've also known of other people who have just gone straight into it with donor. I don't really understand how it works. I know if you use a known donor they have to go through tests etc. before you can use it, but with anonymous I would have thought that that was already all taken care of. So is donor sperm in such high demand that there's a shortage and that's why people have to wait? I would just hate to go through all this to find out we do need donor after all, but then be told we can't do anything for six months.
