    Thanks girls, I'm praying for that miracle that seems to happen to everyone else but never me!
    @midnite01, if your husband is happy with the idea it sounds good.
    I'm now wondering if we should have done something similar. My hubby has got motility and some morphology (I think) issues but all FS have said that my eggs are the problem and donor eggs would fix it. But given only 2 out of 8 eggs fertilised I'm thinking sperm is a bigger issue than they thought, and kind of cranky at the Drs for not bringing it into the equation.
    I did ask Dr LR if he thought we should do PICSI instead of ICSI and he said based on results ICSI would be fine.
    Does anyone know if PICSI might have helped with fertilization rates? I'm not entirely sure what it does, but we were willing to pay extra if needed.

    I'm pretty sure @Blinky76 did

    Hi Midnite ,
    Sorry I don't get here much at the moment. (Full time work & twins makes for a hectic life)

    Yes we did a 50:50 split of DH and donor sperm with our donors eggs.
    Our FS here in Australia recommended it as DH has very poor morphology and a poor FISH result with every sample. We consistently got embryos with high fragmentation that didn't ever get to blast stage and of the 45+ embryos we got over our various cycles we only ever got 4 to transfer. All resulted in BFN

    For us the split idea was our last ditch effort, and seemed to make sense, like a bet each way. As our FS suggests it would eliminate any doubt of DHs issues and give us the opportunity of effectively having a 'double' cycle . Our donor gifted us with 20 eggs which we split 50:50.
    DH was put on a special regime that our FS uses to improve sperm quality and I was on an intensive immune protocol.
    Of the 10 eggs inseminated with DH, 7 fertilised and made it to day 5 blasts. Of the 10 eggs imseminated with DS all 10 fertilised and went to day 5.
    On the day of transfer before looking at any of them we spoke with DR LR and explained we were only interested in transferring the strongest 2 embryos. As it turned out without hesitation the doctor suggested 2 from DH's batch. These two are our 9 1/2 month old twins.
    Of the remaining embryos none of DH's made it to freeze and 5 of the double donor embryos are now currently on ice for us.

    It was only after the fact that I found out DH didn't follow our FS recommended supplements properly at all. I can only assume that by choosing to use a double donor the pressure (stress) on DH had been eliminated thus improving his sample...
    (That and these babies were meant to be ours)

    If you have any questions feel free to PM if you like.
