Male Infertility Family Testimonials
“Two years ago, my husband and I discovered that we were having infertility problems. After many months of testing and some quite invasive procedures, we were devastated to learn that his body just would not produce any sperm. As you can imagine, we went through the whole gamut of emotions. Fortunately, I was given a clean bill of health and using a donor was suggested by our reproductive endocrinologist. It took us many months to decide to go with a donor. The road to the decision was often an awkward and uncomfortable one. Our story was complicated by the fact that of all the Cryobanks in the nation (actually world), very few had any African American donors. To make matters even more difficult, we wanted a donor who would closely match some of my husband’s key features. That meant we needed to find an African American donor who was tall (over 6’3″) and had at least a Master’s level education. Fairfax Cryobank was the only facility with a donor who matched our requirements. Your website made searching and ordering products very easy. The staff’s professionalism with every order and shipment was outstanding! We never felt uncomfortable during any part of the process. We are happy to report that we are currently 5 weeks pregnant! Thank you, Fairfax, for your dedication to helping us start our family!”-LM
“I gave birth to boy/girl twins in January 2005 at 37 1/2 weeks. They were both perfect. I thank God daily that my husband was so giving, he is truly my hero. My children are his in every way that matters and it is only a rare moment when he remembers that they do not share his DNA. My children are now almost two and a half years old.”-CHSS
“My husband is 34 and I am 30. He has a low sperm count and immobile sperm. We tried to conceive for four long years, I never thought that we would ever be parents. When my doctor mentioned Fairfax, I was really cautious and excited. After discussing it with my husband, we began doing research. Of course it was very scary in the beginning; but, I never felt like an oddity or a number by Fairfax. No matter what questions I asked, someone always gave me a clear answer without judgment. My husband and I are so blessed because we got pregnant after our first IUI!! This never would have been possible without Fairfax. We want to thank Fairfax, as well as the donors. I am sure it must have been a difficult decision to donate and also a difficult process too. Dreams are coming true every day because of all of you and I just wanted to say thank you.”-AS
“Thanks to all of you, my dreams came true! I can not say how wonderful it is to be a mother and it would not have happened if it were not for Fairfax Cryobank (and our Donor). I have a beautiful two-year-old daughter who is the world to me and my husband. My husband had a vasectomy with his previous marriage and we were told that even if it was reversed, there still was not a great chance of getting pregnant. We decided that artificial insemination would be our best bet. We were on the computer and were searching different sites. This site was the most informative and gave us so much information. We narrowed our search down to five donors. Out of those five donors, we looked at the childhood photos. Our Donor was the last picture we opened and our hearts both melted. We decided that this was to be Kylie’s biological father. We purchased the semen immediately and had it shipped to Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. I was inseminated a few weeks later! To everyone’s amazement, I was pregnant on the first try!!! We were so excited; I started on the nursery immediately. Thank you so much again, and I hope everyone out there knows how wonderful this site is.”-SMW
“Kendall is our life! Our donor will never know how much we appreciate what he did for our family. Kendall is the most beautiful baby boy; I did not realize how beautiful he was going to be. God bless our donor. We say a little prayer every night for our donor and our doctor. They are two very important people to our family! Thank you so much to our donor for giving me happiness.”-RSG
“My husband and I have been married for almost fifteen years. We were unable to conceive a child on our own due to the fact that my husband had Leukemia as a child. We had attempted a pregnancy six years ago using donor sperm without success. This time, we were inseminated once and achieved a pregnancy. It was the best day of our lives. On July 2007, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. She is perfect, the light of our lives, we wonder how we ever lived without her. If it was not for sperm donors, we would not have our daughter today. We understand that she is a very special gift and we will treasure that gift forever.”-MD
