    Cryos Sperm Bank prices and payment options

    Curious about the costs and prices of using a sperm donor? Read on as we guide you on the price of using a sperm donor and the payment options available to you when using Cryos International Sperm Bank.


    At Cryos, the cost of donor sperm for one round of fertility treatment starts at EUR 110 (VAT not included). This is the price of IVF-ready donor sperm from a Non-ID Release donor with a Basic Profile.

    However, the donor sperm price will vary greatly depending on how much you want to know about the donor. Simply put: the more you want to see or learn about the donor, the higher the cost.

    Frequently asked questions about sperm bank prices

    How much does sperm cost?

    At Cryos, the price of donor sperm for one round of treatment starts at EUR 110 (VAT not included). However, the cost of donor sperm depends on factors such as the type of donor profile (Basic or Extended), whether the donor has agreed to be contacted in the future (ID Release or Non-ID Release) as well as the sperm motility and type of sperm straw (IUI or ICI). You will also have to pay for the delivery of the sperm to your fertility clinic.

    How much does it cost to use a sperm donor?

    The total cost of using a sperm donor for fertility treatment such as IUI, IVF, or ICSI includes expenses to your clinic, medication, donor sperm, etc. and varies a lot depending on your donor choice and which type of treatment you are having - and where. Some countries offer government-funded fertility treatment, but in most countries, you will have to cover the expenses yourself.

    How much are sperm donors paid for their donations?

    Because of legislation that varies from country to country, sperm donors are not paid for their sperm donations. Instead, they are financially compensated for their time and effort when donating. Since Cryos' sperm donation facilities are located in Denmark, we act under danish regulation, which means that we can provide the donor with 200 - 500 DKK (28 - 67 Euro).
