You have the option of using a known or anonymous donor. If using an anonymous donor, we help coordinate with a trusted sperm bank where registered sperm donors have been per-screened for infections and inheritable genetic diseases. In most cases, it is not difficult for parents to find a donor who looks similar to them.
Those who wish to use a known sperm donor should know that he will be required to undergo a routine psychological consultation as per guidelines recommended by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. This isn’t as much to identify any underlying psychological issues as it is to prepare the donor for long term considerations.
