Why is Genetic Matching relevant for people without genetic disorders? 

We are all healthy carriers of one or more recessive genes, that may cause a future child to inherit a recessive genetic disease. Most of us do not know which genetic mutations we carry. The risk of a child being born with a recessive disease is increased if both the sperm donor and the recipient carry mutations in the same gene(s). By using our Genetic Matching services, you can find out whether you and your donor’s genes are a good match, and hopefully feel more calm and secure about your choice of sperm donor
