Topic: IUI vial shelf life
I am now in the dreaded TWW. I did two inseminations yesterday, IUI, one 12 hrs after opk and the other 28 hrs after opk (ya know because life).
My question to you all is how long do these vials last in storage, frozen? My vials are from 2012 as I took them off someone's hands that didn't need them anymore. I've read that yeah, some people have been successful with vials that were in storage for 12 to 20 + years, but that's not the standard, right? All the posts on this forum about my donor resulting in BFPs were from years ago, probably because that is when he first donated.
Has anyone on this forum gotten a BFP from vials that have been on the shelf a while?
