4 things to consider when choosing a sperm donor
Cryos International reveals the key questions to ask yourself.
Is it important that your child looks like you?
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. For many this is a very important factor when choosing a sperm donor.
How much information do you want about your donor?
Another thing you need to consider is how much information you want about the sperm donor. On many donor profiles the description goes far beyond the physical characteristics and you can learn much more about the donor's personality. At Cryos we call this: The Extended Profile.
The extended profiles consist of personal information on the donor's education, family background, interests, etc. You can also read the staff’s impression of the donor, the donors’ EQ profile, watch childhood photos of the donor, read a handwritten greeting and hear a sound recording of the donor's voice. If it is important to you to have more information about the donor, you should choose a donor with an extended profile.
How important is 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.
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.
Remember to go with your gut feeling and what's important to you!
