    Well if you are just buying for one cycle at a time I would settle on two. Do you use OPK's, and if so do you have any idea when you ovulate in relation to your positive? Generally speaking, using two vials, I would time them about 12 and 24hrs past +OPK...unless you either O really close to OPK or really late.

    I will also say if you are very set on a specific donor then I would buy several more vials because the chances of a BFP on your first cycle at home are pretty small. I would buy enough for a good three cycles.

    Right now is a special with NW if you buy 3 vials you get one free and free 2 months of storage. So we ordered 4, two vials per cycle. How soon after your +OPK do you ovulate? Are you using BBT?

    I know the sperm count is lower in ivf vials. But I don't know if they are washed or not. Washed meaning they can go into the uterus, unwashed cannot.

    I picked someone who had prior PGs reported, but the next guy on my list didn't have any. Someone has to be the first. And boy let me tell ya, as soon as someone reports a PG, the donor sells like no other! LOL!

    And you are welcome.

    Welcome and good luck! Will you be doing the AI at home? Just so you know, you can track your cycles for several months and pinpoint O day. Once that dewar arrives, everything changes! I know mine was delayed a few times when the dewar showed up.

    I have been reading alot of posts that say this is only the 2nd time NW has offered a deal like this. But it may become a biannual thing. But that puts the next one in Nov or so. I would order asap. If you can anyways. Plus, the year free storage is awesome. That is $40 a month.

    Good luck with the trip! A few tips, don't tell them it is a cryo tank, take it with you and put it where it won't tip. It has an arrow that says 'this side up'. There are pics of the box it is shipped in in a 'sticky' post at the top of this forum. I hope it all works out!
