I think I would.  If I remarried, I’d get rid of the sperm though.    Did you see when they addressed this on House?

This could be posted in Nesting/TTC section.  I personally have never considered having my husbands sperm frozen in case something were to happen. Maybe because I’m already pregnant.

I’m going to move this to the Babies board.

For myself, I never thought about freezing my husband’s sperm for future use, but I might consider it if we were in a position where his life might be threatened…  I’m not sure I’d be up to single parenting, though, so it would really depend on the specifics.

@MrsNeutrino: Hm, I would ask him what he would want to do.  If he was willing, then I’d go for it.

Sperm is viable for a certain amount of time after death. While we don’t want kids, I’m not opposed to doing this if something happened to my husband. I think losing him would make me want to have his baby, just so I always had a piece of him with me forever.

I couldn’t have a child that is his without him present. I can see why someone would, I am just not strong enough to raise a child that would most certainly have a resemblance in looks, mannerisms, etc. I am a weak person emotionally and I think it would stall the healing process if not negate it all together.

@MrsNeutrino: yeah i know that. I was just saying, I wouldn’t do it unless he died. From my understanding, its expensive to store, so you have to weigh the cost of it with the worth of doing it now and holding onto it for however long you plan. I know if he died in the line of duty, it probably wouldn’t be an option for you.

@MrsNeutrino:  I am actually crying a little. Just the thought of him being gone and having this baby that smiles like him and has his blue eyes… Couldn’t handle it. Most women are much much stronger than I am though and I think it is a beautiful thing for those in such a situation.

I would want to do it, but I know it would be hard to deal with.  I saw an episode of “Make Room For Multiples” where a woman had her husband’s sperm extracted right after he was killed in a car accident.  

I think something like 4 of the embryos took, so she had that many newborns to care for.  On one salary.  Social Security didn’t pay anything because her husband was dead before the conception.

I have a close friend whose husband is in the Army (infantry) and she said that (unfortunately) this is a fairly common thing for a lot of military couples to do, particularily those in high risk positions. She told me that the most common reason is that if the solider is injured in battle, he may survive, but he may loose the ability to have children.

I don’t think that I could have my husband child if he passed away, but I would definitly consider using the sperm if he was injured and could no longer produce new sperm.

@strawbabies: Most docs will not transfer four. Most transfer a maximum of two. My doctor only transfers three embyros in certain cases. So the fact that her doctor transfered four and that she agreed to it makes both of them at fault for her having quintuplets.

I wouldn’t do this. I would not want to raise my husband’s baby without him, nor would I want to be a single mother. I think it is a great option for those who want to do this, though.
