    Default DONOR SPERM Questions?!?! HELP!

    Yea the ultrasound tech did ask me if I'd have PCOS in the past, I said no so she was like oh yes possibly poly cystic ovaries the pattern (like you)....

    I hope we still can do the stim cycle... I really want to do that... And I want multiples haha so that wouldn't be bad! But def don't want to be over stimulated!

    Yea we will get an updated list next week, which is when we will make our final decisions.

    Woohoo! Wonder if our donor choices were similar!

    Yeah Anne said no stim unless we do a few cycles and even then very low dose. Even the trigger shot gives you a higher chance!

    When I had my scan I had 2 dominant follies and lots of small ones and I don't know if one of those big ones took over or whether I had two mature ones pop when I did the trigger.

    How old are you, may I ask, and do you have very regular cycles?

    But if you both want to carry, you can only use the same donor if they haven't met the 5 women rule in NSW.

    Default DONOR SPERM Questions?!?! HELP!

    I'm 22! I don't have regular cycles.... But they are usually only out by like 1-2 weeks lately. So I'm hoping everything just works for once and it all goes well!

    Yea I would love love love twins! Even triplets. But twins would be great!

    I've been doing those ovulating tests at home but nothing has happened and its cycle day 15...

    Another young one! I'm 23

    Sorry to say it but I doubt you'll be allowed to stim in that case. Maybe if you ask nicely

    Dr. Anne said she preferred not to stim when you're young, with lots of eggs and time on your side. But you might get told something totally different!

    You'll probably just have lots of scans, bloods and have to do urine tests (they'll give you some). I recommend buying some First Response ones too as they're pretty good and I was so paranoid I tested every time I peed (I got a positive on a Saturday so had to call the emergency line and had a Sunday insemination).

    My period was pretty much on time last time, but it is 27 days without fail so I would have worried if it was late!

    Also are you planning on buying the enhanced profiles on the xytex site? Definitely recommend it!

    Nope no waiting. They use imported sperm from an American cryobank as well as a few local donors.

    Oh I'm glad your young to! I feel a tad judged sometimes mentioning that in young n others are late 20's or 30's.

    I will obviously go with whatever she feels! I just want it to work! Lol

    Yes we have brought the enhanced profiles on the xytex site. It helped out so much! Our main things we are looking for is blue eyes, brown hair, and Caucasian. Then we break those ones done from there.

    What's your take on there CMV stats? Are you guys choosing only neg or don't mind? We just don't really understand it lol

    Waitingfordaisy: at FF they don't believe I'm waiting and have a number of donors ready, however they are AUS & US donors. Mostly US donors.
