Donor Sperm, Donor Egg, Surrogacy & Embryo Adoption Resources








 Sperm Banks

Sperm banks vary widely as to the selection size, prices availability of washed or unwashed sperm, who they will send sperm to, profile types, identity release, etc. We are not recommending any of these companies and suggest you do your own research -- obtain a lot of catalogs, and look into your options.

 Choosing a Sperm Bank/Sperm Donor

I would highly recommend that anyone interested in sperm donors get the literature and donor listings of several banks, right from the beginning, for comparison purposes. More questions came to my mind once I saw how different the places are. I found a lot of differences between banks, on policy, amount of testing, number of donors, amount of donor information, and cost. Of course, a bank should do extensive donor testing, and quarantine specimens for at least six months, then retest the donor, before releasing the specimens.
Any reputable sperm bank will be licensed, possibly in more than one state. I have heard that New York's is a tough one to get, and some people take a NY sperm bank license as a mark of quality, BUT I am not sure about this. I was told a large bank in NY was shut down in 1995.
You should look carefully at the specimen claims. Banks vary in the amount of normal motile sperm they say will survive the thaw. Often this number is given per a volume that is larger than the specimen volume, or even as separate numbers (e.g., X% post-thaw motile, Y% normal-shaped, Z concentration of sperm), so a little math may be required to compare banks. Note that some banks talk about averages, others about minimums. And watch out for whether they are giving fresh or post-thaw numbers. Post-thaw will always be worse. Some sperm simply do not survive the freezing and thawing. Many banks claim either an average or a minimum of 20 million motile sperm/ml post thaw. This is because the American Society of Reproductive Medicine says a normal fertile male will produce at least that. Also, does the bank guarantee the specimen quality? In my case, the guarantee isn't as meaningful since no one in my small town has the capability of doing sperm analysis to that level in a few minutes' time. So I can't be sure that I'm really getting a certain number of normal, motile sperm. But we do look at a drop under a microscope to make sure there are lots of hardy swimmers!
From everything I've read, IUI seems to have a much higher success rate than ICI, particularly when frozen sperm is used. If you're planning on IUI but your clinic or area has no means of washing sperm (my situation), you would need to order washed, IUI-ready specimens. This not only knocks out certain donors (whose sperm doesn't wash well, or they donated before the bank did washing, or whatever), it also knocks out entire banks which offer no washed specimens. On the other hand, some banks do not guarantee specimen quality if washing or any other procedure is done post thaw, so the availability of washing facilities at your clinic may not be a factor.
I think most banks follow the American Society of Reproductive Medicine's recommendation of no more than 10 offspring per donor. But at least one does it geographically, i.e., they limit the use of each donor to a certain proportion of the population in any area of the country. My impression is that most donors get tired of being donors long before they reach their maximum quota.
Once you get to the point of looking at actual donor profiles, you will probably develop a strong preference for a couple of banks because they include the information you are most interested in. Then you can get a feel for the donor. I not only analyzed donor characteristics, I let my emotions tell me whether I would like the guy if I knew him (kind of hard to explain, and certainly easier to do if there's a donor essay). Not all banks have donor essays or even short written responses to questions. A few do ask the donor to say why he is donating. Of the profiles I saw, almost all had monetary gain as the main, if not a contributing, factor. But several did say they wanted to help others. Some forms include a space for a message to the recipient, which can be very telling. (I swear, one donor's message was, "Invest in real estate--it's the best hedge against inflation.") :)
Keep in mind that some banks share relatively little information on the donor, while others tell you all kinds of things, such as whether the guy's earlobes are attached or unattached. Some have both short and long profiles; costs vary. At least one bank (Cal Cryo) will rate several donors' looks (and describe them) for you for a fee. If you want to have your partner "matched," a few banks provide that service. But if you are set on a "yes" (identity release) donor, or on getting his picture, your options are severely limited.
Since I was working with a doctor in private practice whose office closes for lunch and is not always open late in the afternoon, I always worried the delivery service would bring the tank when they were closed. That's why I prefer getting the tank myself. If you work with a larger practice or a clinic, you might not have this worry. Most banks (including Xytex) will only ship to the doctor or clinic. But Cal Cryo is one of the ones who'll ship to you. Dealing with them was easy, because I'd have Fed Ex drop the tank off at a PostNet, and get it on the way home from work. (Mailboxes, Etc. won't accept the tanks.) But even if they'll ship to you, most banks make you have your doctor sign a form that s/he approves of your ordering sperm, and that s/he will be responsible for the tank.
