Sperm Donor

Choosing a Sperm Donor is the Next Step in Your Fertility Journey

The decision to use a sperm donor is the wisest course of action for many individuals and couples with a male factor infertility diagnosis. Once you’ve selected a donor that matches your ideal profile, you’re guaranteed to receive sperm from a male that has been vetted for physical, mental and emotional health – and whose family medical history is clear of major genetic abnormalities or congenital diseases.

In other words, you’re well on your way to getting pregnant and starting to grow the family you’ve been dreaming of. Fertility Center of Dallas is happy you’ve chosen us and we assure you you’re in good hands. We’ll work with you from start to finish to make the donor selection and fertility treatment as streamlined and stress-free as possible.

Benefits of Choosing a Sperm Donor

By choosing a sperm donor, you benefit from:

  • Higher chances of fertility success due to healthy, viable sperm
  • The ability to select donors based on physical attributes that match yours and/or your partner’s, as well as talents, hobbies, education background, ethnicity, religious or spiritual background, etc.
  • Security of knowing donors are free from the most common genetic and/or chromosomal abnormalities

Find the Ideal Match

Finding your perfect sperm donor match has never been easier. The team here at the Fertility Center or Dallas only works with the most impressive sperm banks in the nation. Two of our favorites are:

Now it’s time to sit down, relax and visit each site. Between the two you’ll have tens of thousands of donor profiles to choose from. We recommend using the search filters to narrow the options; too many choices is not necessarily a good thing…

In addition to the basic face match options, which include race, hair color and eye color, sperm banks allow you to filter for additional attributes, including:

  • Height
  • Ancestry
  • Both childhood and adult photos (childhood photos are a great resource because you can match them to your partners and find a donor with a similar baby/child phenotype)
  • Skin tone
  • Age range
  • Blood types and RH factor

You may also have the option of filtering lifestyle attributes, such as:

  • Astrological sign
  • Favorite academic subject(s)
  • Favorite pets
  • Personal goals
  • Talents and hobbies

While some of these may seem above and beyond the norm, genetics are a powerful force. We recommend selecting a donor who matches as closely as possible to your partner as this is indicative of some of the genetic attributes or linked interests/traits that would have been passed down by his sperm.

If you’re a single mother using a sperm donor to get pregnant, the world is your oyster and you have the ability to choose a sperm donor that meets your criteria for the ideal father.
