What To Consider When Choosing A Sperm Donor


Your future child’s physical characteristics

Before you decide on a sperm donor, you have to consider how important it is to you that your child have the same physical characteristics as you and/or your partner. If this is important to you, you have to choose a sperm donor with the same physical appearance as you or your partner. That way, there is a good chance of having a child that looks similar to you.

Information about your sperm donor

Another thing you need to consider is how much information you want about the sperm donor. At the world’s largest sperm bank, Cryos International, there are two types of donor profiles: A Basic Profile and an Extended Profile.

The Basic Profile is for you who only wants very little information about the donor and the information you get is mostly about the donor’s physical characteristics.

The extended profiles consist of personal information on the donor’s education, family background, interests, etc. In this type of profile, you will also find the donor’s EQ profile and you can watch childhood photos of the donor, read a handwritten greeting and listen to a sound recording of the donor’s voice. If it is an important aspect for you to have a lot of information about the donor, you should choose a donor with an extended profile.

With many sperm banks you must pay a fee to get information about the donors, but with Cryos International this is free of charge. You always have free access to the donor search, where you can learn everything you need to know about the donor. And you do not need to register first.

The donor’s medical history

All Cryos’ donors undergo rigorous selection criteria and thorough medical examinations prior to acceptance to become a donor. Cryos wants to make sure that the donors are carefully screened, setting a high standard for the sperm quality that meets your personal requirement for fertility treatment. If you want to know even more about the donor’s medical history, you also have the possibility to see the medical history of the donor’s closest relatives in the extended profile. Yet again, this is free of charge.

Remember to go with your gut feeling and what’s important to you!
