It is worth the Cost
Donor sperm pricing varies by sperm bank, but generally speaking donor sperm is not cheap; it shouldn’t be. Donor sperm that will be used for an insemination or for IVF should be produced from the best donors, have the most testing, and be a quality specimen.
When you break down all that goes into producing one little vial of donor sperm you see why it is indeed worth the cost.
First, Sperm Banks have to screens hundreds of men just to find one man who meets all of the health history qualifications. Once we find him we have to screen his sperm samples to identify men with above average sperm that will survive the freeze thaw process. If we have a prospective donor that meets all of those requirements he is then tested for infectious and genetic diseases. Consider that Fairfax Cryobank does more testing than is required by the FDA so as to go above and beyond in ensuring the health and safety of the donors and the patients and you will see that Sperm Banks have already put a lot into the process.
While a donor is in the donor program he is producing donor sperm, and having periodic screening and testing completed to ensure his continued eligibility and healthy living. The staff is working closely with the donor to monitor his health and lifestyle to ensure healthy donor sperm.
Fairfax Cryobanks ensures that the donor sperm is of the highest quality from healthy men so you can feel safe in creating your family.
