Being a sperm donor for a friend

Before you become a sperm donor to help your friend, we recommend you to discuss how to approach your role in the child's life. Therefore we have made a list of three topics you can discuss before using a friend as a sperm donor:

  • How is it going to affect your frinedship?
  • Are you going to tell them about their genetics?
  • Will you be involved in their life?

How to donate sperm to a friend

At Cryos, we can help you make sure that the donor sperm is ready for insemination. Meaning that we test the sperm count, motility, and morphology to make sure it is usable for fertilizing the egg. After the sperm quality test, we make sure that the sperm cells are cleaned and ready to be frozen for you to use in fertility treatments like ICI treatment and IUI treatment.
