If it were already frozen on the agreement that it was to be used or we were trying (highly unlikely at this stage we both say were done making babies lol ) then id have no hesitations.
I couldn't and wouldn't take from him on life support etc or after hes dead. Nope couldn't do it. But that's me

I would. Dh is in the army and I'm paranoid about him dying or being totally incapacitated before we finish our family. I would have no issues him using a surrogate and my harvested eggs to complete our family.

If DF was in an accident, this would be the last thing on my mind. It's obviously a very personal choice, but if DF passed away and I wanted to give our DS a sibling, I would rather have that sibling with someone else than with his sperm.
On the other hand, I also wouldn't feel comfortable if DF wanted to use my eggs if I had passed away.

If it had been discussed and agreed on prior, then yes, I would. I have been a single parent, I know I'm capable of it. There is no guarantee that we won't end up single parents anyway, ever. Anything can change, relationships break down, people move away- nothing is ever 100% certain iykwim. A person could do this and repartner later so the child still has a chance of 2 parents, more siblings etc. But it's a question with no one size fits all answer.

When DH and I started IVF, he had a testicular sperm aspiration which resulted in the freezing of a number of straws of sperm (each straw is enough for one round of IVF). We discussed whether he would be happy for me to continue to use the sperm in the event that he died, and he was ok with that... But, when we spoke to the clinic, they said that he could leave it to me in his will, and I would then legally own it, but that I would not be able to legally use it...
