IVF with donor sperm

Postby fiona w » Mon Aug 07, 2006 7:18 pm

Hi everyone
New here and really heartened to find a space to share and talk.
Feeling a bit nervous though - I'm a gay woman and me and my partner are having IVF with donor sperm. I've had 2 failed IVF already (and my partner had 2 ectopics and previous IVF with previous male partner)

Finding it really hard at the moment - just found out today that there are no suitable donors in the UK for us and I've booked in for next IVF in Sept.....
Does anyone know of any places to contact for donors? Or just some positive energy to help us through the next few months!

thanks - and good luck to us all
xx Fiona

Hi smita,
thanks for that. I'm due to start next IVF (long haul with pill to start) in 4 weeks, so I'll see if I can link in with any groups heading for same timescale too.

Hey Jemma
thanks for that.. I'll look them up as well,
I found another good site yesterday on:
https://xytex.securesites.com/index.shtml

which has a few options, so now looking at all the legal bits..... I had no idea!

Fiona, there is a huge shortage of Donor sperm in the UK, it's bad, we thought earlier in yr we wouldnt get any, but we have.....We had to get our donor from London, noticed ur in London too, try the London Bridge St clinic
x x x

Keep on at your clinic too, and they will get something I am sure x x

Good Luck xx

Nickimark
Huge fingers crossed for your test in three days!
xxxxx
Thanks for the tip, I'll def call them this week, as as feeling like running out of time, and really didn't want to postpone this time.
Added complication - DP is African and told by clinic there is no black donor anywhere.... I'm trying all options before considering a caucasian donor. Its not what we wanted, but we've talked through if we adopted - we wouldn't specify ethnicity as having to be mixed White / Black.. so beginning to be more willing to consider alternatives @ IVF stage.
God this is hard this time, and we haven't even got to treatment yet.

anyway, we're talking lots and trying to keep +ve , going for walk now to clear away the cobwebs!
take care and good luck 2U2
