I was just wondering if anyone has had to freeze samples from your DH to use for IVF. I know our situations are all unique but in my case my husband is handicapped from a spinal cord injury which is an injury that commonly affects sperm quality. (Poor mobility too) Anyway, we had to laugh when we 1st went to the RE and they handed us the brown paper bag with the little plastic cup in it...he has to take Viagra just to be with me and even then he doesn't "finish" 100% of the time. Anyway, long story short...(I know, TO LATE!) he had to go through an electroejactulation procedure for us to even get any sperm to use. Because we had to do such evasive measures, our RE got our insurance to OK our skipping artificial insemination and go straight to IVF. They've got 5 vials which we have freezed to use from but I have to wonder if we should be trying to use something fresher from him. Our last 2 IVF tries were from what we froze and they failed. Now we're getting ready to do a FET at the end of February but if that doesn't work and we have to keep going, I'm kind of wondering if we should get fresher sperm. Has anyone else had to freeze their DH sperm to use before?
