Getting donor sperm from sperm bank or online sperm donor

Hi everyone - new here. Just wanting to know if anyone has used donor sperm to become pregnant. My husband has been told he has 'sticky sperm' and we have now had 3 rounds of unsuccessful ivf. We have painfully decided that we are going to try and use a sperm donor but there is a huge waiting listing for donor sperm so we have registered for a sperm donor. Has anyone else used donor sperm and how did it go?

Welcome to FZ!

I don't know anything about registering for a sperm donor but was just wondering if you've thought about going abroad for donor treatment at all? I appreciate it's a lot to think about (I had donor egg treatment in Spain so have been there) but just thought I'd mention it as an idea. You won't wait for treatment if you're prepared to travel and there are some excellent clinics in Europe.

Also, have you checked out the donor conception network at all? Making the decision to use a donor is not an easy one and it took a lot of soul searching and discussion before I was prepared to give it a go. I'm very glad I did though as I have the most wonderful daughter now! :)

:goodluck: to you!
