5 things to consider when choosing a sperm donor

Cryos International guides you through your decision with 5 helpful tips.

1. Do you wish to have a lot of personal information about the donor?

When you choose a sperm donor you need to consider how much information you want about the donor. Many descriptions in the sperm donor profiles goes far beyond the physical characteristics and you can learn a lot about the donor’s personality e.g. personal interests, education and the donor’s family background.

At Cryos we call this: The Extended Profile. Here you can also get a sneak peek of the donor as a child.

If it is very important to you to have personal information about the donor, you should definitely choose a donor with an extended profile.

2. A lookalike or not?

Another thing you need to consider is how important it is to you that your child looks like you e.g. have the same physical characteristics as you. If you for example have brown hair and brown eyes you can choose a sperm donor with the same characteristics.

3. Do you want information about the donor’s medical history?

All Cryos’ donors undergo rigorous selection criteria and thorough medical examinations prior to acceptance to become a donor. But if you want to know even more about the donors’ medical history, you have the possibility to see the medical history of the donors’ closest relatives in the Extended profile.

4. Do you want free access to the donors’ profiles?

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

5. Do you want to reserve your favorite donor?

When you have found your favorite sperm donor you should consider making a reservation immediately. There is always a risk that the donor you are using will be sold out.

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