Purchased 2 vials in 2012 of frozen sperm via Outreach Health in Canada. They are Canadian compliant and came from Xytex in the U.S. I used 1 vial and was successful with the first round of IVF. Both vials were sent to the fertility clinic.

 

I'm too old now to have another, so what can I do with the leftover vial that the fertility clinic is holding?

 

Thanks.
