Sperm bank


My first tip is ask your doctor if they have preferred spurred pigs if you're working with a reproductive endocrinologist many of them have a list of preferred banks.

So, they'd like, you to work with. Why do they have preferred Bank?

Well, they may have researched their quality and reputation. They might be very familiar with the way that they prepare sperm how they ship the sperm and they're very familiar with the quality guarantees and the refund procedures if there are issues with quality. Therefore it can be a really good choice to just go with one of the preferred sperm banks that your doctor suggests now. If you aren't working with a reproductive endocrinologist you might want to select sperm banks based on if they will ship to you.

Some sperm banks will ship to you directly without a doctor's note such as northwest cryo bank if local regulations and laws allow it. There's a few states where it is not permitted but in other states it is permitted other sperm banks such as Fairfax cryobank will ship to your home only with a doctor's note. Your doctor such as a primary care physician may be perfectly willing to write a note.

But if you don't want to go through the hassle of getting a doctor's note or you're not sure your doctor will give you one then you could look at banks that do not require it.


  • Do you want to have a donor that is verified to have a college degree?
  • Do you want to have a donor that is six foot three?
  • Do you want to have a donor who is the same religion you are?

Who is the same religion you are who is the same race as you has the same eye color has the same hair color. If certain things are important to you then you'll have to look for a bank that offers these things.  Those things aren't important to everyone but some of those things are very important to some people and they can use those qualities to filter down their choice of banks.

Another very important thing to consider is whether you want an anonymous donor that their identity will never be revealed to your child in the future or if you want an open id donor.

How does that open ID process work if they are an open ID donor?

Do they send your child a letter when the child turns 18 with the donor's last contact information? Do they actually look up the donor's contact information and keep it up to date? Do they allow the child to reach out to them and ask for the donor information? There's a different policies and procedures about how the open id release actually works in the future and so those things can help you make a decision.

Do they send your child a letter when the child turns 18 with the donor's last contact information? Do they actually look up the donor's contact information and keep it up to date? Do they allow the child to reach out to them and ask for the donor information? There's a different policies and procedures about how the open id release actually works in the future and so those things can help you make a decision.


We just talked about how it's important to know what things about the donor you want and making sure that type of donor is available at the bank. But you also have information about the donor that you can receive such as voice interviews. Some banks do not offer voice interviews other banks offer voice interviews. So you can actually hear the donor speaking about why they are donating what they hope for people who receive their donations.

Other banks do not offer adult photos they only offer childhood photos of donors or they might not offer any photo at all they might only offer a physical description. So if you know for sure oh i have to be able to hear the voice of the sperm donor because then it will help me figure out if i'm an energetic match to that person.

For example just thinking of possible reasons then you can eliminate all of the sperm banks that don't offer audio.


This doesn't have to be a super expensive investigation but i would suggest some basic googling about the bank you can google things like whatever:

  • the sperm bank's name is plus mistakes
  • the name of the sperm bank plus lawsuits
  • the name of the sperm bank plus litigation
  • the name of the sperm bank plus family limits exceeded

You'll find a lot of articles and information and see if you're comfortable with what you find and how you feel about using a sperm bank. Now just because there's been a prominent case of a mistake in the news doesn't necessarily mean that sperm bank is one that you shouldn't use but i think it's a good idea to understand what is going on with the sperm banks because there is not much regulation at all in the united states of the sperm banks.

Their policies procedures how they make sure donors are who they even say they are it is not very well regulated at all. And when i say not very well regulated i'm kind of even being a little bit generous.

What is regulated is that the sperm itself is tested for STDs and there's quarantine periods to make sure that the recipients are not getting a dangerous donation that will make them sick. As far as regulations beyond that it's pretty much up to the banks.


Different banks again have different amounts of things that they screen donors for some will screen for over 200 genetically recessive disorders. Pretty much everyone in the population is a carrier of an autosomal recessive disorder of some kind. But luckily based on probabilities most of the time you end up finding a partner who does not carry the same issue as you do. And even if you find someone who's a carrier oftentimes the odds of one of your children having the disorder is about one in eight and sometimes that can happen. Most reproductive endocrinologists these days suggest that you yourself get a genetic screening to see what conditions that you might be a carrier for then you can look at a donor and see if they are also a carrier.

If you have not been tested then it might make sense to go for a bank that tests for really really a lot of things. You can always talk to a genetic counselor to see what they suggest about a specific donor that you're thinking about using and their genetic test results.

And also in combination with your test results when you receive donor sperm you will get a report of their testing along with probability listings of like what's the probability of this disease based on this donor and their results in the population. And those results can sometimes be a little tricky to interpret and so that's when it could be really helpful to talk to a genetic counselor.


This one is really important. Now you might be surprised to hear that in the united states there is no federal or state law about this. american society of reproductive medicine does have guidelines and their guidelines suggest no more than 10 to 25 offspring in a population of 800 000. Okay so you can do the math there there's like a lot of millions of people in the united states and so even if you went by that guideline of 25 per 800 000 population to avoid accidental consensus copulation that could still be a lot of offspring.

Most banks will actually stick to 25 family limit per the entire country of the united states but you have to check with the bank to see. Also family limits depend on self-reporting of recipients if a recipient Used a sperm donor at an home insemination got pregnant had a kid and never reported back to the bank hey i had a kid with this donor then it's possible that the family limits are being exceeded.

You might want to ask the bank do they ever follow up with anyone to find out or do they just purely depend on the reports. Remember also that sperm from the united states is often exported to other countries and family limit laws in other countries vary as well the number of offspring that may be generated by the same donor that you're using could be higher than just the limit in the united states of 25. And that's an example right some banks may go more by 25 per 800 000 population around the country. And there are some banks that have a lower limit than 25 so that's one thing of it's important to you to think about.


Costs of course the cost of donor sperm is going to be like a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of raising a child from infancy to adulthood. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't factor in your budget while you are trying to become pregnant it can take multiple tries. The cost of one portion of sperm ranges around a thousand dollars.

Some sperm banks they may be less detailed in the information that they offer but they might be cheaper. It's fair to take costs into consideration when making your decisions. Also remember that you do not have to be exclusive with one sperm bank. You can order uh from one sperm bank for one attempt and another sperm bank for another attempt. You aren't locked into always only using the first burn bank.
