Hi Ladies! Newbie here
Has anyone here used Midwest?
I'll be using Midwest sperm bank sometime next week. I was wondering what your counts were and how you timed your insemination?

Thanks so much!!

I did - we did vaginal insemination at home, so we didn't have a post-thaw count. We had no problems with Midwest though, they were very good to us! We bought 4 samples, planning to do 2 at a time at 12 and 24hrs after OPK+. We only thawed one for the first insem though, and it felt like so much fluid that we ended up doing 4 insems. I got my OPK+ at about 2pm, and we did one late that night (~10pm), and three the next day (8am, noon, 10pm). I was concerned about using IUI sperm for a vaginal insemination, and I worried that I insemmed too early (my temp didn't rise right away). However, 10 days later I got a BFP. It worked on the first try!

If it hadn't, we were going to go down to 2 samples for the next month.

Good luck!!
Thanks!!
I did my inseminations 4 and 5 days ago, not sure of what day I O'd though. I was sick and had a fever around O-day so I couldn't temp.

My 16-month-old son came to us courtesy of Midwest, so I'm a BIG fan!


We did it at the doctors, and though I don't remember the count, they always showed it to us on the microscope and said it looked really good...

We got pregnant on the fourth try, one vial a month, basically just getting the timing right...

Say, anyone using donor #198?????? The "very good-looking" Puerto Rican? If so, congratulations, cuz he makes some pretty babies!

I looked for that donor, but it looks like he's no longer there.

Nope, ours was #038, the blue eyed, brown-haired really tall guy. Don't know what his kids'll look like yet though.

I agree, especially since they all got pregnant using him on their first try like you did.
