3 Easy Steps to Find your Ideal Sperm Donor

1) Find a donor sperm match

The first step is selecting one or more appropriate donors.

To do this, head to our interactive donor search platform. From there, you can filter donor results by selecting the criteria that matter to you the most. We update our donor selection daily, so if you can’t find a match right away, continue to come back and meet our new donors.

Connecting you with a high-quality donor is our top priority. You can view several critical details and supporting materials on each donor profile for free. This includes the following:

  • Audio clips
  • Medical profiles
  • Summary profiles
  • Staff impressions
  • Essays

Final notes on how to find a sperm donor

Please note the following.

First, if you select an ID donor, you will need to complete and return a signed ID Patient Agreement. These forms are donor-specific. Please email, mail, or fax the signed form at least one business day before you place your order.

And second, due to the high demand for certain donors, be sure to choose several donors before placing your order. We suggest selecting three or more. You can also decide on a donor far in advance, purchase specimens now, and store them until your procedure date. Read more about our Vial Buy & Store and Vial Buy Back programs.
