Yes, I am in North Carolina. How far do you guys live from the doctor's office? It should be ok for him to take care of business at home if you live within a 30 minute drive. My hubby and I are about 50 minutes from the RE's office and the SA lab, so my DH had to get over that fear pretty quickly. And he's getting lots of practice with monthly SA tests... poor guy... still makes me giggle every time though
How long have you been going to your RE? If it's a long time, maybe he/she will cut you a deal to try IUI, like 2 tries for the price of one. It doesn't hurt to ask. I know family friends who have done this with their OBGYNs when having babies and other big expenses.
