I am new and this is my first post. I am looking for some advise around using a sperm donor for IUI.
My husband has been diagnosed as infertile and we have decided to use a sperm donor. We meet criteria for NHS treatment and our consultant has recommended 3 rounds of IUI and then IVF if this is not successful.
There are currently no donors available so we have decided to purchase donor sperm privately from a HFEA approved clinic.
I was wondering if anyone had done this and could maybe explain about the process. We have received a top of the list appointment for the end of this month despite the consultant telling us that there is a 3 month wait to start treatment. We are unsure when we should order the donor sperm and if we can use a donor from another country.
I am just so confused about what will happen next and our consultant is useless and just always says we will discuss it at your next appointment.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
