Sperm Donor & Cryobank 101

Sperm Donor & Cryobank 101

After researching all of the top rated cyobanks aka sperm banks, I ultimately decided on using Fairfax Cryobank.

FC, of all cryobanks, does the most comprehensive testing of all of them. FC is the ONLY cryobank which tests for HPV and Herpes via DNA. It is important that a woman TTC (trying to conceive) not walk away from the experience with more than what she came in with and only walk away with a baby or two… or three :-).

No one wants a sexually transmitted disease !

FC has extremely strict donor guidelines and they also limit the number of births that can come from one donor.

The last thing I want is to end up on the new reality show, “Generation Cryo!”

ps: good thing I have a sense of humor, as all of this is a tad bit overwhelming !

I have made a list of the most important factors that I would want in the father of my child. I will begin my seach using that criteria.

I have opted to use a “Donor ID” as opposed to an Anonymous Donor. At the age of 18, I am allowing my child/ren the option of seeking out their “father” and developing a relationship with him, should they so choose.

My mom, sisters, godmother and my closest friends and I are going to have a “DONOR SELECTION PARTY” ! Open up a few bottles of wine, lay out a spread of cheese, appetizers and a Bible (just kidding) and narrow down my “baby daddy #49877ab2”
