The clinic I work at deals with Repromed quite a bit, but most people still use Xytex and CanamCryo (affiliated with icky Fairfax Cryo, home of the sex selection procedure, which is thankfully illegal here). We also have a few donors donating directly to the clinic, but I don't think I would be allowed to use them.
A problem am I facing is the whole "race" thing given that my daughter is not white. I get to see how many pregnancies happen from the same 3 or 4 donors and I just do not want my future children on Oprah when they are 18 with their 30 half-siblings.
I did not think about bringing it back to Montreal. Now, my brain is coming up with a bunch of fraudulent plans using paperwork from work... I think I need to come up with a better plan, or at least investigate the consequences of trying to cross the border with sperm that has not been deemed safe enough for Canadians. I will also investigate if I could get a clearance to have it shipped to me and kept where work, especially since I would like to order a lot and have handy for the future.
As for using a known donor, I am not sure about that. Legally, the only way to do it and be ansolutely safe would involve a 6 month quarantine period. I am so thankful every single day that I do not have to deal with my already existing child's bio-dad that the idea of willingly putting myself in a situation where some guy might want to claim any kind of legal right over my children just seems odd.
Maybe I'll go back at look at the Repromed offerings.
Oh, and I hope am not intruding here. I usually hang out in the single mothers forum but I think i'll feel more at home here discussing these things.
