I know there are a few of us using donor sperm for our IUIs. Please check in and we can chat about the experience of using a donor and support each other through the process.

I'm Becky and my husband has azoospermia (no sperm in ejacuate). We have been TTC for exactly a year, since we got married. We found out last winter that he had no sperm in his SA and spent the spring doing hormonal and genetic tests. In May, we were offered a biopsy to look for sperm, but the odds were too low for the cost.

So, I am on the birth control pill for a cycle due to high LH and will start clomid 50mg for 5 days and do a trigger shot. It looks like it could happen around August 1.

We are still trying to pick a donor. We're pretty close, but still have some questions we need answered to feel 100%.

Even if you aren't quite to the IUI stage, feel free to chime in!

You should be testing soon! How exciting! Are you getting a beta this week or doing home tests? Any symptoms?

I'm going to join you! Great idea on the thread. We are using a donor due to DH's vasectomy reversal healing back up. I did the clomid/trigger route since I have no fertility problems that we know of. Currently I am 9 dpiui and 11dpt. Beta on Thursday.

I look forward to chatting with others who are going through the same process.

I hope you get both get positive tests this week.

DH took a long time to get used to the idea and how I think he is even more comfortable with it than I am at times! How are your husbands with it with it being done?

My dh has klinefelters syndrome so no sperm at all and donor was our only option. I am 11dpdiui today after our first diui. I tested every day from 3dpdiui to see when the trigger shot had left my system (it took about 10 days from the trigger being done) I got my bfp this morning on a Internet cheapie and a clearblue digital. For us it's given a a real chance of a miracle.

Thanks you CM! Soon it will be your turn to start. My DH handled everything very well. I was shocked but we both knew that it was pretty much the only way.

Congrats Startdust!! That is so exciting.

Canadian, what a great idea for a thread. I have been on the azoo thread for months and months but now I'm going through IUI (woopydaydoodaa) I feel bad about posting on there as it must be tough for the newbies only getting diagnosed and then on the ordinary IUI threads I felt lindi didn't fit in also. So YAY for this

My story, in brief: TTC for over 3 years hubby had scar tissue from an operation when he was young which we found out (after months of tests) it was irreversible. As you will all understand it has been a very tough LONG road. So skip to present: we just had DIUI last week and I am still in shock that we have had IUI.

So did you guys trigger? Any symptoms? How are ur hubby's? Mine has been amazing, he makes me so proud, he is so excited and positive but realistic it might take some time.
I have no symptoms, a few twinges but I could have imagined them
