Hi there. After 9mths of trying we are devastated to find out that hubby has no sperm :-( We are going through the ropes of getting tests done to see if there is any sperm that can be extracted surgically, which we can use with IVF. The next step if this fails is asking FIL whether he would be willing to donate. Failing that - we are looking at using donor sperm.
Using donor sperm through a clinic is expensive and the waiting list is timely. I have found DIY-baby.com - free private sperm donors. What are the legal implications of using a private donor? Do you just all sign an agreement stating that the donor has no legal rights or responsibilities for the child? And what happens with my hubby? He will be our baby's daddy - does he get his name on the birth certificate? Does he take on all of the legal responsibilities? Or does he then need to adopt the child? SO MUCH TO THINK ABOUT!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
