    Default Alone at 39 and wanting another child. Where to start when seeking sperm donor?

    Hi
    Firstly I am just asking for advice at this stage and do not want any 'opinions' on what is right or wrong!
    I am not sure I am posting this in the correct forum so my apologies if I have.
    I am 39, single with a 9 year old girl who I conceived naturally. My dilemma is that I desperately want another child and am now very worried and upset that it might not happen because of my age etc. I had a termination last year (long story so please withhold judgement) which was extremely heartbreaking and I deeply regret, but this has only made me realise how much I yearn for another child. However I will not 'use' a guy just to get pregnant, that is not who I am. Does anyone know what options I have eg artificial insemination using sperm donor etc. Would I qualify for this and does anyone know the costs as I have been told conflicting stories from under $500 to over $10,000?? Has anyone done this?? I am aware that lesban couples use this procedure. Also sonce I already have a child does that mean I may not be eligible??
    Every day I walk around with this empty hole in my heart that only seems to get worse. I just want to be a mum again and give my daughter a sibling.
    Can anyone offer me any advice in this??

    Thanks

    Hi stormgirl. I am TTC with donor sperm at the moment. It is a very confusing process. From what l have read, it depends on where you live and what clinic you go to in regards to accessing ivf and donor sperm. I'm in Melbourne and my clinic has an age cut off of 45. Being single is enough of a reason to qualify for donor sperm. I have just started my first IUI cycle (where they just put the sperm in (plus a whole lot of drugs)) and it has worked out to be almost $3000 in admin fees including the sperm selection and then $1900 for the actual cycle (drugs and ultrasounds are included in that). Hope that helps!

    Yes for IUI in Brisbane I am looking at just over $1000 (after medicare rebates) for each cycle. So costly, esp if it doesn't work and I have VERY limited savings. So disheartening

    There are websites where you can find free sperm donors, you don't have to go through a clinic if you don't want to. I'm not sure of the names but if you Google it I'm sure you'll find it.
