Topic: Not donating donors?

Have any of you not been able to use the same donor for a sibling? What did you do? Did you use another donor, decide against trying, or is there a way to use the same one? I plan on trying this year and am looking into my options.

Charlese was born on June 17, 2017 at 8:33 AM. She was the most gorgeous baby I've ever seen. She came into this world weighing 7 lbs and 5ozs. She was 19 1/2 inches.

Will try for #2 around September 2019! I’m ready to complete my family!

Re: Not donating donors?

I used the last vial of my daughter's donor and I ended up miscarrying in August of 2016. I am finally going to TTC towards the end of the year and we will just be using a different donor as her donor is no longer active.

Re: Not donating donors?

Im not sure which donor is actually the genetic contributor to my little boy. But if it’s one of the donors-he’s sold out and retired.
If it’s the other donor I have a chance to buy more vials.
I figure in a few years if I really want a sibling but they aren’t full genetic siblings because of vial availability, then that’s okay.

TTC #1: August 2017 - ICI BFP- miscarried @7weeks

Re: Not donating donors?

Thanks everyone for answering. I think I will try with a different donor if the one I used is still not Donating. I want to have one more child and full siblings or not they will grow up together and never feel like anything but full siblings. I am glad to hear people have been through this and can give feedback.
