Tip #2 – Think About Your Favorite People

It’s easy to get hung up on stats like height, hair color, and if they wore braces. When you think about your family and important people in your life, what comes to mind? Is it their athleticism or artistic skills? Their quirky sense of humor or love of animals? Sometimes it’s these little things that help you find a sperm donor that’s a good fit.

One day, your future child may ask why you picked this person to be your sperm donor. Thinking about your potential answer may help you find your sperm donor.

Tip #3 – Review Medical History & Genetic Screening with Your Healthcare Provider

When you have a couple favorite sperm donors, we strongly recommend discussing the donors’ family medical history and genetic screening results with your healthcare provider. The family medical history is self-reported by the donor based on his understanding of his family’s health at the time of his application to the donor program. Even though we review this information, we want to make sure you discuss this information with your provider so you can be informed about potential risks and determine if a sperm donor is right for your needs.

Tip #4 – Found Your Sperm Donor? Order Vials ASAP

Here today, gone tomorrow. Our inventory is unique. The vials we collect from our sperm donors are limited and we can’t simply get more when they sell out.

Purchasing vials is the only way to guarantee that you will have your donor sperm when you need it. We offer vial storage to keep your vials safe until you are ready for your treatment.

It’s especially important to also plan ahead for Baby #2 (and Baby #3 and Baby #4). If you’re planning to have more than one child, we want to make sure you have enough of your sperm donor’s vials for all of your treatments. Our storage programs include the ability to sell back any unused vials once your family is complete.
