Hi Talia

As there is such a shortage in the UK, the sperm used in our clinic is imported from abroad and we have been assured that all checks (HIV, etc) are as strict from these donors as in British donors. 

I am not sure how easy it would be to import by yourself, but it might be worthwhile checking out some clinics to find out if they import.  If you are considering DIUI soon then the new legislation might not affect you as some clinics import the sperm in bulk and should have stock which was imported long before April 2005.

I wish you and your DH all the luck in the world as it this is a very difficult decision to make.  I have just had one ICSI cycle which looks like it has failed and may be going down the DIUI route soon.
^goodluck^ Den
