Hi ladies! I'm Eva, I'm 25 yrs old, I currently live in Chicago but will be moving to Minnesota in May, and this is officially our 7th month TTC. We have severe MF issues so we've done 2 IVF cycles (first was a BFN, second was a chemical). We've now switched gears and we've gone to IUI with donor sperm. I post a lot in the "TTC with medical assistance" boards, but I thought I'd join you gals here as well. I get my beta results from our IUI this Thursday, but I'm not feeling very positive about this cycle... I'm having no symptoms at all (with my chemical I had huge sore boobs), and I'm resisting POAS. We'll see if AF shows up on her own before Thurs, but at least I'll know by then. If its another bfn I'll do another IUI cycle with donor sperm again. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and I look forward to getting to know you all!

~Eva

Hey girl--I think we've crossed paths before on TTC your 1st. I just wanted to say good luck, and let us know how everything goes!!!

DH and I had talked in the past about the possibility of using donor sperm someday, so it's nice to hear of someone else doing it here on the board!

GOOD LUCK!!!

Sarah - it was a tough decision to use donor sperm, but I think I'm glad we chose to go that way. We still have some frozen embryos from our IVF cycle (with DH's sperm), but I'm just not feeling great about that. My reasoning was that if he only has 96% abnormal sperm by looking through a microscope, why do they think the other 4% are actually normal? Maybe they're also abnormal, but just not visibly so. I just feel anxious using such abnormal sperm and risking that it doesn't work, wasting tons of time and money. Plus, IVF was just physically and emotionally draining, and IUI with DH's sperm wasn't even an option, so that helped us decide to use donor sperm. If you do decide to go that way and have any questions, feel free to ask!

Eva

Well, I POAS this morning and it was white as snow... very clear BFN. Darn. Now just waiting for AF so I can start yet once again. Does anyone else ever just feel like they're hitting their head against a wall over and over again?
