Re: tanks this week??

We are getting ours next Monday. We're TTC #1 but hope to have four kids eventually. I hope you're successful TTC #5!

Re: tanks this week??

I got my tank last Tuesday but I’m still waiting to ovulate!!!  I hope I do by Tuesday.  How long does the tank last??  I don’t remember?

Re: tanks this week??

It should be fine for a couple weeks if left unopened. Once you open it, I think you have about 2 days.

I think I may end up in the same situation as you. I haven't even seen a partial line on an OPK and my tank just got here today. My ovaries better be prepping the best egg of my life right now lol.

Hope you ovulate soon! Keep me posted on how it goes.

Re: tanks this week??

What???... a couple days??  It says on the tank to open up immediately to make sure order is correct.  I just checked it and all still looks frozen!!  I got my smile tonight though so my first Insem will be tonight and then tomorrow night we will do another.
Did you take clomid or anything?

Re: tanks this week??

@lesrmh: You are definitely supposed to open it and check everything as soon as you receive it.  It is still set to last up to 21 days but only guaranteed 7 after you receive it.  You can keep it past 7 days if you notify NW and pay the additional cost per day.  They just won't guarantee the motility, although many women have had to do this and haven't had any issues.  We actually ordered 4 vials one month, only ended up using 2 so we sent the other 2 back to storage.  They arrived still frozen at NW (we were staying in very close contact with them) and that would've been 9-10 days after we initially received the tank and opened it to inspect the vials.
Good luck with this cycle!! FX for you!

Re: tanks this week??

Oh good. All seemed well in the tank last night as we did the first insem. Next will be tonight and then we can send it back tomorrow.  So only a day late.
