Quoting Mrs.O♥:" I'm not sure if anyone will know this, but I wanted to ask here before I created a post about it. Since ... [snip!] ... DH's biopsy, 1k .... which might set up back a little :( not sure yet! The world keeps knocking me down but I won't stay down!"


My RE says we have to do 4 cycles of IUI unmedicated before they will explore doing IUI w/ meds.




Where are you getting your sperm?! $1200?! Try OHSU - oregon health and science university (http://www.fertilityoregon.com/lab/spermbank.htm) or California Cryo (http://www.cryobank.com/). Both ship. Probably way less. We're going through OHSU and ICI (unwashed) is $300.



Sorry to hear about the unexpected bill. I hate getting those "love letters" :(

We have looked at California, it says one vial is 615.

I'm so excited! I can't believe that by next Christmas both of us could possibly have a LO! :)

Less than $1200. Their prices are going up after the first of the year, too :(

We are going to buy more than one vial though. What's the difference between unwashed and washed?

Check out OHSU's list :)



I'm on their egg donor registry. I think after we have a LO I'm going to update pictures. I'd really like to help someone else out.

I'm probably not going to say it right.... but from what I understand washing is the process of removing all the fluid from the sperm itself. I'm getting unwashed because the process of IUI with Kaiser includes washing. So I'm already paying for it.



Why are you buying multiple vials if you don't mind me asking?

Oh I get it. That makes sense!



If we want a second, I want them from the same donor. And my fear is if we wait, the donor won't have any left. So I want to be prepared.

Ah! Gotchya! I might want to look into that then. I'd really like to have more from the same donor as well :)

Yeah I figured I'd want them to be the same biologically.



Ill have to talk to my RE next Friday regarding IUI or ICI because the ICI is half the price and would cut our expenses in half.



ETA- ICI I believe is unwashed.

Have any of you looked into the the gender selection diets?
DH and I really want a girl. According to these studies no caffeine! I wonder if there's any validity to these studies. I get the whole pH balance aspect but yuck...
