Do I need to live near a donation clinic?

Not necessarily. We suggest our donors live, work, or attend school within 2 hours of a donation clinic because all donations are collected on-site. 

How long will it take to be onboarded into the program?

From start to finish, the onboarding process usually takes 4-6 weeks to complete. During the first appointment, applicants should expect to spend about an hour filling out the medical history questionnaire, providing a test sample, and participating in an interview. Depending on your sample quality, we may schedule additional appointments to collect samples for sperm analysis. The final appointments include a mental health evaluation, physical, blood draw, and genetics test.

How often can I donate?

We ask our donors to commit to 6 months, visiting the office at least twice a weekMost of our donors choose to donate past the minimum commitment, maximizing their reimbursement. The maximum time investment will vary for each donor.

How do I leave a semen sample?

You will produce your sample in private room equipped with a selection of adult videos for stimulation. Donors are welcome to bring their own laptops or tablets. Yes, we have wifi! 

What do you look for during the sperm analysis?

We test for sperm quality, only accepting semen with above-average sperm count and motility. If you’re not accepted into our program, it does not necessarily mean your sperm count is too low to conceive children. Motility rates can fluctuate based on a number of factors, such as extreme temperatures or sexual activity.  

Is the program confidential?

Your privacy is our top priority. Online applications are submitted through our secure website directly to our facility. Donors are identified with a donor number to protect their identity. We will not share your identity until reported offspring conceived with your sperm are legal adults. At that time, we can release your information when donor offspring requests it. Learn more about our privacy policy.

How does genetic testing affect my anonymity?

During the screening process, we test donor applicants for 280+ genetic carrier conditionsYou may request a copy of the test results for your records. Our genetic testing does not affect your donor anonymity. 

If you or any of your relatives sign up for a commercial genetic test kit like Ancestry or 23andMe and opt into seeing connections made via their database, you may be identified by others who test themselves or their children.  

What are my legal rights as a sperm donor?

Donors sign a legally binding contract waiving all parental rights and responsibilities to children conceived from their sperm. By signing this agreement, donors forfeit all responsibility and liability for offspring conceived from their donationsIn this contract, you agree that reported offspring conceived with your sperm can receive your information upon request when they are 18 years old.
