Choosing a Sperm Bank...What to Know

And I know, this can seem completely overwhelming- hang in there! Maybe it's because they are a non-profit, they do seem to try a bit harder to keep accurate records and to act in a more responsible and ethical manner. They are not perfect, but do seem to try harder to contact donors when a child turns 18, not just send a generic letter in the mail, as some banks, like California Cryobank have done. Or not responding, or claiming that donors are not really "open" at all, as some banks do. We think that 18 is an arbitrary number, only in place to protect the sperm bank's liabilities. Children under 18 do need their parent's permission.
Sperm Donation in Northwest Indiana
US Sperm banks have promised anonymity to donors — but can they keep that promise? The legal letter was sent from NW Cryobank, the sperm bank she used to conceive her daughter. How could the bank do this? Danielle states that she has communicated with and read stories from donor-conceived individuals that emphasize how important connections to biological relatives, health history information, and knowledge of ethnicity and family heritage are in the development of a healthy identity.
Sperm donation in the USA is mainly controlled by large sperm banks. Some of the sperm banks are listed below but there are many more local agencies, which we anticipate to list over time. Since sperm is easily frozen, the sperm banks can generally serve the Northwest Indiana area in addition to the rest of the USA. They may have locations to donate that are different from Northwest Indiana.
