Thanks tortoise. Yeah dp has already had all testing and we bought sperm a few years ago. The sperm bank we bought from only sold minimum 5 viles at a time so dp and I each bought 5 so we could guarantee to use the same donor (we are counted as 2 families in the eyes of the donor registry) it cost $6800 for all 10 and shipping then $400 a year to store it (we pay 1 lot of storage as our clinic stores it together as 1 family )
We think our dr will approve another iui because this last cycle made a connection just didn't stick so ivf wouldn't help that. But due to limited sperm, we would move to IVF for cycle #4 if it came to that.
Wow $30k seems heaps! But a great investment for the future
But I guess we are up to $20 something thousand... Blah having babies isn't cheap!
