Donor Medical Profiles and Donor Medical Status (Part II)
Blog written by Laboratory Staff JM
Fairfax Cryobank also offers an online feature, Check Donor Medical Status, which can be used by anyone who purchased semen from us as well as doctor’s offices where the vials were shipped. It tells if a donor has been placed in a special classification because the Cryobank has learned of a medical situation in an offspring, a donor’s family or the donor himself that indicates using the sperm could lead to an increased risk for transmission of a hereditary condition. Clients are advised to check the donor’s medical status before using sperm or embryos that have been stored. Clients sometimes store sperm or embryos created with donor sperm because they hope to have biological siblings for an existing child. Clients also can check on their donor’s health as their donor conceived children grow. Eventually, donor conceived children can review their donor’s medical status before having their own children.
Fairfax Cryobank is committed to providing the highest quality donors, and we take great pride in being your trusted choice for donor sperm.
