European Sperm Bank

Introduction to European Sperm Banks

If you are going to use the services of a sperm bank you will want to carry out plenty of research and make sure that you know exactly what is going to happen and as much as possible about the donor. All banks should carefully screen their donors and be able to give some information about the history and description of them to their customers. Based in Denmark, the European Sperm Bank works in a slightly different way to many. They still carry out stringent checks and estimate that only between 5 and 10% of the applicants actually go onto become donors.

How to Get In Touch

With most sperm banks you make an appointment and go to visit the clinic. In this case it is possible to do all of this online. For 100 Euros (£86) there is a 3 month period where you can get all the information you want about prospective donors. This will be the basic information about them such as nationality, physical appearance and job. They will also provide you with a photograph of him as a child and you can hear an interview with him to find out about his views and interests. The sample will be screened to make sure that there are no signs of illness and you will also get details of their family medical history. The European Sperm Bank makes sure that you have all the information you need before you choose a donor

What Will It Cost?

After you have paid your 100 Euros you can then work out how much the entire process will cost you. There will be a fee for the sperm you wish to buy and a shipping fee. If you think you may need time to arrange the process or wish to use the same donor to have more children in later years, they will store it for you for up to 10 years. They will send the sperm to anywhere in the world, but it will only be send to a registered organisation or doctor that has been registered to provide fertility treatment. The cost of this will be 300 Euros (£252) and for storage the prices range from 50 Euros (£43) for 3 months to 843 Euros (£875) for 10 years

Things to Be Aware Of

Some donors are open and others want to stay anonymous. This means that you can choose to have full details of the donor and when the child reaches 18 they have the right to get details of them and could trace them. Many men do not want contact with the children and you may decide you do not want your child to try to trace them. Before you choose your donor you can make sure that the blood type will be compatible with the future mothers so there will not be a problem for women who are Rh negative.

There is no need to be concerned about using the European Sperm Bank and not being able to meet the staff. They adhere to the European regulations and carry out screening that others to do not.
