Home Insemination Question

Hello All, My partner and I just picked up our Vial of sperm from the Cryobank, we were only able to buy 1 vial this month, so we were wondering if anyone has ever split up one Vial before? Or if that's even possible?! To fill syringe half of sperm and Insem twice for this cycle? Forgive me for the weird question, but you'll never know unless you ask
you just need one well timed vial so Good Luck!!
TTC since March 2015: 5 ICIs & 5 IUIs -all BFN
July 2016- IVF w/BC/Lupron/Gonal-f/Ovidrel - converted to IUI- BFN
Sept 2016-IVF w/BC/Lupron/Gonal-f/Ovidrel- Two 3d ET- BFP @ 9dp3dt, Beta#1: 209 @ 12dp3dt, #2: 782 @ 15dp3dt - EDD 6/3/17 - It's a Boy!

It can actually be refrozen. I did it at my RE. But some sperm do die off. I didn't care bc I only needed one sperm for IVF.
IUI~BFP (BORN STILL) AT 16w5d 4/3/14
Chemicals~IUI 7/24/14;8/21;BFNs~9/25;10/19;IVF#1-2/21/15~No embies made to blast.
IVF#2-BFP~4/16 trans. 2 embies
Did they thaw and refreeze? Or did they shave some off the frozen vial, while it stayed frozen? My RE wants to shave rather than thaw and refreeze and I hadn't heard of any other option.
