Default I'm Bacccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkk!!!

I'm back, in more ways than one!!
After my BFN through ICSI with Mark's sperm, we went for a follow-up appt 2 weeks ago. We was told there that Mark's count is even lower and worse than we knew before, and our best chance was going back to donor (background info - I got pregnant using a known donor in July 2003, but m/c at 11 weeks) We had two options

1) D-IUI,
2) Have another IVF cycle, and split the eggs in half (not literally!) One half will be injected with Mark's sperm (ICSI) and the other half will be mixed with an anonomous donor sperm (IVF) They will be kept apart, and after 3 days, we will make the decision on who's embryos to put back.

We've decided to go with the IVF option, because it has great success of working. I think if this one dosent work, we'll talk through it all again.

Sorry I havent been on for so long, but for some reason I couldnt sign in, and my emails werent answered - thank you so much to Monique who helped me, and the other CL as well.

A friend from my IVF clinic did a half and half cycle. Her husband also has a low sperm count. When it came time for transfer they put back embryos with donor and DH's sperm. Who's to say which one stuck? All I know is that I got an invitation to her baby shower in yesterday's mail. They couldn't be happier.

I wish you the same luck.
